    I think they look best with the fender just slightly over the top of the tire. [​IMG] Yours is not drag-race, but the same applies to your road-race inspired look for a BMW. I used Afco double adjustable shocks all around and controlled bump with custom made stops to limit downward travel to about 1". I presume that with a road-race style car you're going to be using stiff springs, so i would also think that about 1" of downward suspension travel prior to hitting the bump stops would be plenty. If you do decide to adjust this make sure that you use a conical shaped bump-stop that will gently introduce a heavier rate to slow bump travel. I would think something like this would look much nicer then the factory BMW wheels when approaching a road-race inspired look: [​IMG] I would also go for a satin finish rather then a polished finish. Bilstein is pretty much entry-level street performance stuff, might consider Afco or Penske if you plan to ever complete with this car, or if you want something that is adjustable in a sense that the adjustments you make actually result in a change in feel, in other words if you prefer to spend money once.

    Thought I might resurrect this thread.

    I am posting from in my roofspace, in the pitch dark, wearing a facemask. Building an attic up here today. Almost done, got my netbook up here for some music. Oh and I ductaped a torch to my arm, cos my mate with the fancy lighting kit had to go back to work.

    This is pretty cool, but I have to admit that it was a little bit cooler before I remembered to translate "torch" from British English to American English. [​IMG]

    ^ Yeah, a flashlight, not a blow torch, or flaming torch. That would be some mad max type badassery.

    The attic is 90% done now, the only problem is the house was built in the early 1900s and the roof space has been left alone for pretty much all that time so there is some 100 years of built up soot dust and filth up there that has to go before I can use it for storage.
    When I finished for today I showered and turned the water black.
