As a general note, the Ohlins M100 kit (originally designed for E9X cars) as supplied will not clear a 9" wide wheel without replacing the front springs with shorter in order to clear the tire. It's a great kit but I wish they would have done a little more homework for the E82 platform knowing that people would want to run wider front section tires. This is all solvable with the right spring (including rate) as well as proper wheel offsets but knowing this up front would have been nice.
