Hi
The springs are fine
It's the width of the rear tyre makes it look so flush
To run a 10inch rear and a 285 tyre you need to mod the rear inner arch.
BMWZ runs the same wheel and tyre option as well

Wow - Andy - a really nice car!

But why did you switched your 20" Breytons to the standard 19" M326?
Comfort reasons?

It looks like you have an extreme rear camber... Still from the 20's?

You made the 3d-bodykit-copy by yourself, didn't you? Awesome job!

Thanks nuebbes

It is not camber on the wheels, it is a camera distortion trick, car was never set up for 20" wheels
The 20" wheels rubbed and I was not going to cut the arch on a new car , so just sold them
The ride is very similar to 19" with run flats on , maybe every better .
I will find 20" wheels for it
I did design my own kit but I would not say its a 3d copy, I personally think its much better, different materials ,shape etc,

Thanks agin for the comments

I also prefer 19" compared to 20" at the Z4 - I hate 19" rft - we have these tires on our 125i - that is a real terrible driving-feeling! So I can understand why you went back to the 19" wheels!

Your body-kit is awesome. I love it if someone makes an own design with a real quality! So please go on like you did!

I love the wheels. I wish I could afford the change from my 18" 293's.
I too love the side skirts. Nice upgrade and very clean and indiscreet.

Thank you
Wheels, springs and body kit really bring all the details and lines in the e89 together

Looks like a proper sports car

Let me know if you want to buy a set of skirts

Cheer

what was the width and offset of the Breytons that caused it to rub? What width and offset are you thinking of getting in 20's to not have to roll the fender with the H&R springs?
