Sorry, for the LATE responses, but it's been a busy year for me since we recently had a baby and she is quite a handful!!!

I think they are in Elk Grove Village. Joe and Emil (the owners) are two buddies of mine and great people.

I would have to agree with the spacers. I had a lot of plans with this car but unfortunately had to stop because we had a baby. I would say 7-8mm up front and 15mm in back would be perfect. Try to see if anyone else has run spacers with these wheels. I know Gill from Tirerack has these wheels also. Try asking him, he knows way more about wheels than I do!

Tire wear seems pretty even on the back. I don't think camber plates are necessary beyond the slight camber already present in our suspension with these wheels since they are the stock sizes.

BTW, suspension still rides great after more than a year. Shocks seem to be holding up, no rubbing issues. Car still needs more stiffening though before I would considering taking it on the track. Either stiffer shocks or larger anti-sway bars.

Car looks awesome!! Drop is beautiful and mags are great....but I'm with Bimmer-Bob, spacers would give THE killer look!

I left the stock shocks in for awhile after getting these springs put in but found them to bounce alot,so i got koni fsd's put in and find there is more control,i think it is best to do it all at once.

This will simply reduce the life span of your shocks, but they will not blow in a week. So if you are ok with having to replace struts/shocks 1-2 years sooner than when expected, you should be fine with upgrading just springs.

For the sake of ride quality and suspension geometry, ideally you want a set of springs and struts/shocks that were designed for the drop you're going for. This is why I went to BMW PS and I have no regrets.
