They all went on without a hitch, just had to remove the dust covers on the hubs, 12mm and 15mm burger motorsports fit exactly flush can't go any wider on stock wheels imo. Burger also said their 10mm spacers would fit the front, which i would have went with, but i had already ordered 12mm. This is just so everyone knows info is every scarce regarding spacer fitment on the 4 series gran coupe.

damn the fronts look a little aggressive. what do you think?

i also didn't remove my dust covers. Could / would that have been the problem on my front 10mm set?

I also have different wheels than you and M sport suspension. hmmmm, might have to retry my 10mm set if the dust covers were causing a problem.

Yeah mine didn't fit all the way on with the dust covers, take those off and i bet yours will fit and yes i think 10mm is the way to go on the front, I thought the front was just a bit too aggressive also with the 12mm since the tire where it goes over the rim is more visible. 12mm puts the rim exactly flush with the fender and the tire is a bit wider than the rim where the two meet. Doesn't look bad i just think i would like the10mm better. I know it's just about the width of a nickel but I'm picky like that. Lol

I have the sport suspension but the 18" wheels its a sportline package but I'm a noob here so I have to look at the papers to get any more descript about it|

...btw, after I took it on a test drove and looked closely at the front and rear wheels they are exactly the same amount spaced out which I would think was to the limit so I'm pretty sure your cant go wrong with a 10 or a 12 on the front, 12mm just makes the front a lil more aggressive which is what I think the rear looks like on mine but I bet 12mm would be more likely to cause rubbing problems if your planning on lowering it later.

Just retried the front 10mm spacers this time removing the dust covers. They fit perfectly. I maybe should've tried this the first time, but it's my only experience ever with spacers and I'm a little over cautious I guess.

I think anything 10-12mm works, but like you said I dont think you could lower the car with the 12mm.

Thanks for your help. Will post pics later
