Basically spacers push the wheels out a wee bit and make it look flush with the body line. You can install spacers on any rims depending on if you’re not satisfied with the stock look and want to make it look flushed or pushed out.

Looks really nice, great job
Did you keep the original wheel nuts or do you need to buy longer ones ?

I have factory M Sport Brake. First picture is showing M Sport Brake, probably just the angle that does not show clearly

I am starting to have noise with the lowering spring. now I am having knocking noise coming from the passenger side. Installer said it's coming from the Spring and Top Plate rubbing. Nothing they can do.

Since it's been a few months, how does the car ride? I'm hesitant with these spring because of the amount of drop on factory struts.

Has the noise gone away? Where did you get it installed? I'm about the do the same setup with springs but that has me a bit worried.

Just installed H&R spring on my G20 330I, have same issued. Spring making noise from driver side. Went back to the shop and they retorque the top mount to 120 lbs (most BMW only need 90 lbs). Never hear the knocking noise again

Noise did not goes away. Tech had to re-lube all parts but eventually will come back. Tech recommend to change the top mount and bearing that is going to cost $350 parts only per side.

Did you hear the noise all the time when driving or only when moving the steering wheel? I feel like mine is quite faint and I feel it could be the tie rods... according to my advisor my car is not a part of the bulletin that requires a fix.

Did you take it into the BMW dealer as well?
