I've used spacers in my F30, only 10mm in the back. The handling is pretty much the same, perhaps slightly better in the corners.

Besides this, if you buy some wheels with an aggressive ET you will be more satisfied.

8,5 with ET33/35 in the front
9,5 with ET40/35 in the back

Just an example.

What spacers did you run that were 10mm in the rear?

I thought F30s could only run like 13mm minimum in the rear due to manufacturers not making anything under 13mm/15mm fit with the taller hub lip?

Eibach have 10mm spacers. But if you want something more aggressive you can put 15mm in the back.

May have improved handling a bit, hard to tell since it?s such a minor change.

I'm debating about the same mod myself.

Anymore photos of 403's on spacers?

I thought the smallest rear spacers for the F30 were 15mm?

I'll have to check out Eibach.
