Macht Schnell Wheel Spacers Installed

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just got back from European Auto Source after getting a set of Macht Schnell spacers installed. The VMR V705 wheels left me with a pretty huge gap up front and a relatively small one in the rear, which left me with a pretty weak fitment. These spacers filled out the gap and made the stance much better!

Here are the specs:
Spacers: 15mm front, 5mm rear
Wheels: VMR V705 18x8 +45 (square)
Tires: Stock PSS
Suspension: H&R Springs











Again, I wanna thank the guys at eAs for getting the parts for me and doing the install! Couldn't ask for more from you guys... or could I? Muahahhahaha...

I think I've determined that 18s are the correct size for this car, 19s are just too big. Car looks awesome!

How did the spacers affect the handling of the car is the turn in better or worse, does it create additional understeer or oversteer? Thanks.

The turn in feels slightly sharper, but it won't be easily noticeable. As far as understeer/oversteer, that's not something I was able to experience on the street.

I thought that the minimum you could fit in the rear was 15mm how did you manage to do only 5mm?

It was the 10-15mm that didn't fit in this case.

What do you mean it didn't fit in this case? I thought all M235īs could fit a minimum of 15mm rear...

The spacer itself didn't fit the hub center due to the hubcentric design of it. It couldn't go all the way to the end of the hub center ring unless a thicker (or non-hubcentric) spacer was used.
