Re: Lowered, 255 rears with 12mm spacers?

Depends how long the spigots on you hubs are? If the ring sticks out more than 8.0 mm the spacers won't sit flat against your hubs/discs, and will crack in two when you torque the wheels up.

How does that compare to the old Datsun?

Re: Winter Question

I have 17" X1 Steel wheels with 225/45/17 winter tyres all round. They do look a bit pants, but honestly it's function over form for me. Been running this setup for the last five years, works for me and as you say function over form. When all said and done it's just a 1series.. Thankfully I can't s...

Re: Suspension upgrades, options and opinions?

Have a ring around your local parts counters, you might get lucky as they're often changed. E34 and E60 bits.

Surprised that no one has mentioned getting a removable bollard if they have to park on their driveway at least. My car is currently parked on the public road but is disklok'd every night
You're fine parked on a road in a random spot, they'll have no idea which home to break into.

Re: Arch rolling.. Any potential problems?

2mm more stance and 1/4" more stretch than mine, so I can understand why it's catching.

Re: Arch rolling.. Any potential problems?

I'm not sure you could 'roll' it as such, I did power file a good chuck off with a thin belt sander, if that counts?
