5mm spacers (fine for front/rear)
10mm spacers (front only)
12mm spacers (front only)
15mm+ spacers (fine for front or rear)

*NEW* - H&R is soon to release a 13mm spacer that will work on the rear for the F30

After a lot of back and forth, I am thinking a 13mm+ spacer is still too much for thge OEM stock setup. I'm fairly certain I will settle on a 5mm spacer for front + rear.

FOTIO - FYI - I was able to cancel my 12/15mm purchase, so will likely go w/ a 5mm setup. Tend to agree with you - stock setup only needs a bit of a spacer to help w/ the flush/classy look.
Awesome. Exactly what I did. You'll be happy. Make sure you still get longer bolts. They use the same ones as the 10mm spacers.
