ST coilovers and dinan camber plates - 2012 135i

More pictures to come, but I wrapped up my install of ST's and Dinan camber plates last night. The front is as low as it can go without running spacers (springs would contact tires). Rear is currently set as low as it will allow, I'll likely be raising it up some, but wanted to give it some time to settle.

Tires are Conti DWS in OEM sizes, rear has 15mm spacers right now and there is some light rubbing over large dips, I'll be looking into that this evening. The plan is either some 12 or 10mm spacers for the front, have to do some measuring.

About 25 miles on the setup and I can tell the ride is great. I'll put a few laps on it this weekend for fun and will report back.

Ended up having some clearance issues with the 12mm spacers and the hub, so laps were postponed.

Ended up settling on 15mm front and 12mm rear. Will be getting an alignment shortly, letting everything settle. No rubbing at all anymore.

1)GREAT looking OEM+ look.
2)Does the rubbing happen on the inside or outside of the tire/fender well? (More details the better.)

Thanks, that's the theme I was going for on this car. The 15mm spacers on the rear rubbed on the fender, even with a slight roll. I'm positive I could have resolved the issue with a little more massaging of the fender, but I figured why not just run the 12's in the rear and 15's in the front. You need more spacer in the front to get it "flush" anyway. A 15mm still leaves plenty of room with the added camber.
