Aaaaaaannnnd... STILL no coilovers. I hate waiting, I seriously can't stand it. #FirstWorldProblems

I'm gonna put on my wheels Saturday. Have my shop swap the TPMS out, mount and balance, throw the appropriate sizes spacers on and have my fenders rolled. It will poke slightly for a week or 2... But it will save me time and make feel like this build is actually moving along. It's been too stagnant waiting for this stuff.

Go with 265/35 on the rears. You'll clear it. I ran 19x9.5 +35 with 265/35. Cleared with camber.

Planning on running 255/35 on all 4 corners. About to order my BC Coilovers as well. From my calculations the fitment should be PERFECT in the front with the right drop and like -2.5ish degrees of camber. I'm not really concerned about the rears right now. Once I dial these bad boys in, I'll know the limitations of fitment for the fronts of these cars and will be able to order the correct specs for my Work SP3s.




these wheels look awesome where did you get them from are they hub centric?

Can you post up details of your entire brake setup? Calipers, pads, rotors? Looking to upgrade sometime soon. TY

Got the wheels put on today. I'm very pleased with the look of them. Even more so, the minimal amount of stretch on the 9.5 with 255/35. I wanted to do 255/40 all around, but these will do for now. Wheel specs are 19x9.5 et37 all around, 5mm spacers in the front to clear the strut and 12mm spacers in the rears to match the poke of the fronts.

Here's a pick of the inner clearance for reference. I could probably do a 265/35 with an 8mm spacer and -3 camber, but I'm trying to keep it at -2 or less.



Pictures of the wheels mounted. Pissed that my black BMW Roundels don't fit these openings.











I got the rear fenders rolled just for the extra few mm of space to reduce any potential rubbing. Hopefully my coilovers will be here within the next 2 weeks. One day at a time.

I would have, but since these are my beater wheels I wanted a square setup. I'll probably do a 265/35 front and 295/35 rear setup when I get my real wheels. Still playing around with fitment ideas right now.

eBay my friend. Lol. But you can find them all over the forums. Lots of resellers on here.

This is the standard 335i setup. 4 pot Brembo front calipers with the 340mm rotors. I purchased the 4 pot rears to get rid of the shitty stock one. I have to order the 345mm rear rotors to make them work. From my research, this is the same setup on the M235i from the factory. I'll be ordering the 340mm front, 345mm rear drilled and slotted rotors from R1CONCEPTS with ceramic pads, priced it out for like $670ish. I have like 25% life on my OEM pads and I'm at 40K miles on the rotors so I may end up doing this by the end of the year. Wanted to wait until next year, but I'll do what I have to do.

Ordered my quad diffuser, front lip and quad exhaust tips today. Should all be here within a couple weeks.

Where did you order your diffuser and exhaust tips? Any links ?

eBay, no links sadly. Diffuser was from a seller out of Taiwan. The tips are just stainless steel, dual, 3" at 6.5" total.

Let me know how the coilover install goes, interested because I want to see how it fits and how much camber you needed.

great build!

Going on Saturday. I doubt this setup will take more than -1.8ish to fit for the drop I'm going with. I only want to reduce wheel gap, maybe tuck a few mm of tire once it settles. This is all a barometer for my next setup.

if I'm reading right, your front set up is at 19x9.5 et 32 (with spacer) with 255/35? and et 25 in the rear? No rubbing with that?

Yes, you're reading that correctly.
No rubbing at all. However, I had my rears rolled slightly. Eyeballing it, I doubt it would have rubbed at stock height anyway.

Call from my shop today, they fired 2 guys for internal theft. I have to push my install back to Wednesday. Pissed, but it's life.

Height wise I doubt it as my BCs don't have that additional rubber guard that OEM shocks have. May be an issue width wise, but I have 8mm spacers to go up to from the 5mm on there now. Another - .5 degrees won't make much of a difference camber wise.

Go for it, I like the look of these compared to every other set of OEM wheels of our generation. Gives the F30 a real OEM plus feel.

This happened today.



I've been grinning like a school girl ever since. A quick reminder on the fitment specs for anyone that cares to know:

19x9.5 et37 with 255/35/19 tires all around
5mm spacers in front, 12mm spacers in the rear.
Lowered 2.5" front and 1.8" in rear on BC Extreme Lows with 12kg front springs and 10kg rear springs. (These things drop really low... I have so much room left to go lower...

Camber and toe listed in pic below. I'm still debating how I want to play this. I think the rears need to be raised about .5" and I'll either drop down to 8mm spacer in the rears or move up to an 8mm spacer up front. Then I'll alter the camber to either be -2 all around or -2.5 all around.



A few more night time cell phone pics until I can get the DSLR out and have a real session.







For the record, there's absolutely no rubbing at all... like anywhere. I have room for another 5-7mm up front at -2, probably 10-12mm at -3. This is really helping me get the specs down for my Meisters SP3s, I'm very happy. If anyone has any fitment questions feel free to hit me up.

You'll need some camber but you shouldn't have much issues besides that. I'm lower than I wanted to be and I have no problems with rubbing.

Can I ask what you paid? I've called a few places and some of the quotes were outrageous. PM if you don't want to say publicly.
