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.
This is perfect! I really appreciate all your help. Thanks again!

That stance is killer with the OEM wheels! Would going 18mm spacers, or something just a bit less, help with the rubbing at all?

I'm sure it would help a bit, but I test fitted 10mm, 15mm, 18mm, and 20mm all around. 20s looked the best, that's why I went with them. But I never drove around with anything other than the 10mm and 20mm. I had no issue whatsoever with the 10mm, but I wanted a more aggressive stance with the OEM wheels. If any other members have 18mm spacers, please chime in. Thanks

I plan on rolling my fenders within the next month, I will post pics when I get a chance.

I have just installed 12mm on the rear and I have done a little test driving. My driveway is slightly inclined and the roadway is crowned. When making the right turn into my driveway, there is a point when the car experiences maximum compression such that on the left rear I rub on one of the bumper attachment bolts underneath. This would represent a worst case scenario and give you an idea of one of the first places the tires will touch if/when it does. My fenders are not rolled and I am running OEM wheels and tires with H&R sports.

Just adding another data point for you to consider.

Can you roll the fenders and still keep the fender liner?

I'm not too sure. I just realized today that my rear fenders already came rolled from the factory.

Are my fenders pre-rolled from factory then?

I don't know what I'm looking for... I assume there might be some contact on the sidewall/liner...
