Wait, what did I attached? Is that a PET diagram showing that part #40 is a factory spacer for the 930 (PN 930-331-611-04 superseded to 930-331-611-06). You mean, Porsche, from the factory, put spacers on the original 911 turbo. And we all know Porsche > BMW when it comes to racing.

Edit: I think it might be a 28 mm spacer too.

My e39 is fixed and moving towards atrophy.

Here's how she sits. Loving the look right now! Almost think I could get away with 20mm spacers on all 4 corners! The difference is most notable in the front. Lemme know what you guys think.

Just (barely) lowered my 2002 530i Sport on coilovers and installed 15mm hub-centric spacers with new lug bolts. I think I'm something like 13.5" from hub center to the top of the wheel arch. I didn't want to lower much and I was already almost scraping curbs when I parked. It looks stock to the layperson, but better than stock (sport package) to my trained eye.
