Thanks guys! no spacers, their just a low offset wheels originally came from a 7 series (previous car it was installed on) reason I chose it is I like it's concave wherein most of those with 3 series offsets aren't as deep as I want them... and yeah low is on the way... rims are 18x8.5 square set and sitting on 215/35 tires, If I knew the gap would be this big I would have gotten 225/40's...

Looking forward to seeing tire shavings? That offset is horrendous.

you should also save up about 150 bucks or so and get a real set of headlights, those one piece angel eyes are plastic korean junk... you'll thank me when you've got a set of DJ Auto or DEPO headlamps in there.

word well you're off to a clean rare start. You don't see to many e36 wagons around these parts. Good luck with your build, can't wait to see more. Pretty decent price?

actually 10-12k (edited)
thinking like 7-8 for the car at least 3 for the bag set up and the style 5's are generous at a grand.
