Beautiful Car and nice wheels!

How much did you lower your car? Did you lower the front and back?

Thanks. These are ACS springs. They lower the car by 1 inch.

Not yet! Probably next month. Never heard about VRS front lip. Do you have a picture?

Here's my new set up (iPhone quality). I ordered 15' spacers for the rear wheels and still can't decide if I should go with 10 or 12.5 for the front wheels. What do you guys think, 10 or 12.5?

If u get a better shot of the front fender and wheel it would give us a better visual for what spacer to run. Close-up shot if u can!

I'm planning to install the spacers today or tomorrow. I'll update the post with new pics.

These are BMW wheel style 373, F 8,5x20 ET 33 R 9x20 ET 44.
You can go 10-12 front and 20-25 rear.

Спасибо за инфу! I decided to go with 12 front. I was looking for pictures with the same wheels and 20' rear spacers but no luck. I'll install 15' rear next week and see if I like it but I guess I should've gone with 20'.

Crowdsourcing is in progress )

Yours 373M F 8,5x20 ET 33 R 9x20 ET 44 are the stock wheels for the F12:
http://realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpart...diagId=36_1656

The 351M F 8,5x19 ET 33 R 9x19 ET 44 are the stock wheels for the F10, see catalogue for both '12 550ix and '13 535i:
http://realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpart...diagId=36_1527
http://realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpart...diagId=36_1527

You see 373 and 351 have same specs except diameter 19" to 20" but this is not important for offset. So we can consider the 373 and 351 equal in terms of spacers for the F10.

So here is the example of the '13 535i with the 351M and 12mm front and 15mm rear BMS spacers:
http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19604

I would say, you will have the same look with 15mm rears, though consider 20mm are better, as we discussed. You'll have R 9x20 ET 24. It would be equivalent to a 36 offset with 10 inch wide wheels. I am running R 10x20 ET28 and believe that offset is perfect. Here are my pics: http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1063954

Hope it helps)
