good job indeed, is that a stock rear diffuser, if not where is it form? Also got an closer pictures of the trunk lid spoiler. Many of the Ebay ones dont line up correctly at the outside edges.

You just have to bend it and put it on slowly. And it will fit.

Very nice. So I take it that this is the "eBay" spoiler that everyone has been installing of late? Looks good in black, actually.

Any rubbing with this setup? If not, did you have run extreme camber?

I have the same wheel widths, offsets, and tire sizes as you, except I'm running Michelin PSS. I'd love to run a 12 mm spacer up front and 10 mm in the rear, but don't want to rub. I will eventually drop on KW v3s.

Yea it rubs, but the e89 fenders are slightly different from other BMW's, especially e9x/e46/e82.

If you take a look at the rear, you should quickly spot that there is nothing to "roll", and you should also see that there is a second layer of "fender" which is part of the wheel well, and that is what my wheel was rubbing on for the first few weeks. Lucky, since it is only part of the wheel well which is made out of plastic, it will be shaved off by the tires eventually. I think it took me around 20-30 rubs before it's gone. I still rub once in a while when I go thru bigger dips.

Hope this helps. gL

And FYI as soon as u drop you should already be "rubbing" without spacers regardless of the camber assuming your offset is <+33 due to the wheel well.

But it will eventually go away. Just suffer a few hundred miles.
