Just ordered 10mm spacers front and rear... since I have H&Rs I dont want to take a chance at 12mm in the rears as advised by member LI-M5. Does anyone have a pic of an M5 with H&R springs and 10mm spacers ALL AROUND.

Did people suggest for you to put 10mm spacers all around? I am looking at getting the H&R's and want to put spacers on as well. I am just trying to figure out exactly what spacers I need. What were the negatives about 12mm in the rear? Also, who did you buy yours from (both springs and spacers?) Thanks.

BD 997 put 10mm all around. A lot of people have put 12mm on the front and 10mm on the rears. I think 12mm would work all around as well. But again, generally everyone puts the 12mm on the FRONT.

we should setup a group buy for spacers since everyone wants them :thumbsup:

12mm fronts and 10mm rears with the longer bolts.

know any sponsor that might want to arrange this? :blink:

From everything I've read, most recommend 10mm in the rear just to be safe. But 12mm definitely works in the front.

Active Autowerke just did the setup on my car 2 weeks ago (12mm front, 10mm rear, H&R Springs). No rubbing at all with 4 people loaded in the car.





Good luck...

I have a one "SET" of used H&R 10mm spacers for sale right now. I do not have the extended bolts but you can order them online from Turner Motor Sports. I am selling them for $60 Dollars and $5 bucks shipping. They retail for $95 + tax and shipping. You save over $40 bucks. Local pick up preferred!

I have an M6, but I haven't had any issues with running 12mm all around. No rubbing at all. My spacers are hub-centric and made by Eibach.

Hyboost how much did AA charge you for the install of the springs and spacers?

Do I need the longer bolts with 10mm spacers all around and the M6 wheels from bmwwheels.com without rubbing?

Or it might be flush enough... :-/
40mm bolts are needed....

I know this thread is old as dirt but instead of making a new thread, I am posting my question here. Does anyone else have rubbing issues in the rear with 10mm spacers? I am running 12.5mm front and 10mm rear with H&R springs and under load or with someone in the back seat, I am getting some rubbing in the rear.

I’m running 20mm in back with stock rims. Only rubs with 4 in car. Need to cut the metal lip where bumper meets body. There’s about 1/2 in. that can safely be removed. Maybe more.

is it risky or dangerous to put spacer?? coz i want one but heard those rumors...
Just make sure they're hub-centric and that your lugs are long enough to go through the spacer and still get enough threads in the hub. You can purchase varying length lug nuts.
