haha. i've been checking everyday to see the latest on this thread. i'm just about to go for 20mm all around and not fit 5 people!. mine is an 09 (similar to 08 i guess), so i'm thinking i can get away with it. i'm really obsessing over that stance!

UPDATE***

I am sad to say that I have experienced some rubbing on the freeway on bigger dips with a full car. The rubbing is very minor in sport mode but when in comfort mode, it is very noticeable. So if you don't mind a little bit of rubbing with a full car then 20mm spacers are for you. If you do however hate rubbing and cannot stand it, I would not get 20mm spacers. Note that there is NO rubbing when I am the only one driving with no passengers. Sorry the update took so long guys, I haven't had a full car in awhile to test it. Happy Holidays everyone!

Hi again. Thank you for the update. I assume when you say full car, you mean 5 people? Given that it has been some time now since you had the 20mm spacers all around, do you still like them or do you have any 2nd thoughts? My apologies for all the questions but I really am considering your route. Thanks again!

It depends on what you normally use the car for. I personally use my m5 to drive to and from work everyday, I hardly ever have time to put other people in the car with me. When I am alone, the car has no rubbing issues at all.


With that said, if I did drive other people around regularly, I would be very annoyed with 20mm spacers. And Yes, i meant full car = 5 ppl. The stance is so nice, I get complements from other bmw owners all the time. If you like the stance, I would just get the fenders rolled, but that's just my opinion. Right now I have no reason to roll them because I'm usually the only one in the car, but I do like the stance so much that I do plan on rolling the fenders in the future. If you have anymore questions you can PM me or post on here, hope this post helped answer your question.
