That is correct Evolution Raceworks Front bumper, Fenders & skirts in red carbon/Kevlar. The kit adds about 2.5 per side of extra width.

Yo, mate, do you think ARC8 8.5" ET38 and 9" ET42 will work on a slightly lowered 135i. I know for a fact that 9" ET44 with a 245-section tire works in the rear, but not sure about the front. I've seen guys with square 8.5 ET38 setups but think that's gonna rub without any fender mods. Couldn't get them to answer me.

Thanks for the post! The 18x8.5" ET38 is recommended for the front when you're running certain aftermarket coilovers that reduce inner clearance. With most other suspensions, the 18x8.5" ET45 is recommended.

The 18x9" ET42 is a bit too aggressive to work in the rear, and wouldn't maximize all available space within the fender to run the widest possible tire.

We produced the 18x8.5" ET45 front and 18x9.5" ET58 rear specifically for the 1-series, since it makes the best use of all available fender space to allow the widest possible tires with minimal (if any) modification required.

It's on KW V3 coilovers and no modifications.

It's just that I've found a set of wheels in that size, I believe they were made for E46 3 Series. I'll be running 225&245 PSS tires. 9x18 ET44 BBS Ch-R are certified for the E82 so hoping the 2mm difference shouldn't be a problem in the rear. But the front is what I'm concerned about. I'd have to drive there and test it on the car, I guess.

According to 1010tires comparing the 9.5 et58 vs the 9 et42 the result is the 9 et42 will have 22mm more inner clearance & will extend 10mm wider.

Please tell me what/if any suspension mods you have. Also, what size wheels and tires?

More pictures please! I'm trying to decide between the ec-7 and arc-8s.

I so wish I could have gotten hyper black in the EC-7, but the wheel was more important than the color to me.
But I love me some HB!

Thanks friend. These wheels are perfect for the E82, and I get compliments on them all the time. The anthracite finish looks brilliant against the Jet Black paint. When they go a while without being washed off, the colors turn into a bronze looking finish that I also enjoy. They've held up great over the past two years, and I've managed not to curb any of them since buying them new. The only time I want more, is when I see the deeper concave found on the E9X fitments--I wish that was possible on the 135i!
