Do you think adding a spacer at all 4 corners with the original set of 397 wheels a good idea? Because I quite like the original wheel design...pushing it out make it look more flushed.

I saw one 335i F30 in AW and red seats in prince edward near police station last saterday. Wow looks stunning! Don't know has it been lowered yet, but the wheel gap looks very nice already..

ET35 fro rear will fit for 9.5"

Yes, the offset change which differ from the E90, I have a set of BBS LM-R sitting in my garage...I cannot put it in my new car.

My rear offset for the existing LM-R is ET25.

How come? Did u ask ur sales abt the production date of ur car? If u've ordered ur car back then I think u should've got ur car by June. On the other hand, if u've ordered 328i then u'll save 75k by waiting longer.

Yes, I get the deduction.

Be4, they said my car will produce on May, as that time their order is so full. Anyway, a lot of excuse. Then told me it cannot ship out, cause they change to a new shipping company, my car cannot get into the ship wow.. will arrive on July...Then, again, the salesman said, wow, you are lucky, you get the EFV deduction, but need to wait for mid of August to arrive.....
But with 78K deduction, what can u say?

My sales lady just told me that my production order has been shifted from August to September due to shortages of M Sport parts...

Meanwhile she is still checking on which instrument cluster comes standard for mine.

Ask ur sales for the VIN number of ur car, then ask which shipping company they use. U can track the ship urself with this info.

ET45 for 8.5 is OK, but you won't like it. Look at the OEM 20" BMW wheels, they are ET45. But not good looking. 8.5" can definitely go for ET35.

My rear setup will be ET35 for 9.5", front is ET35 8.5"

the wheels i want only available in sizes of 19" x 8.5 (front) 19" x 10 (rear).
hopefully they will have 19 x 9.5 in future.
thanks again oedipol.

the wheel shop only offer 7k to trade in the m sport 18" wheel w/ RFT.

Hmm... I am not quite sure about ET35 with 9.5 at the back as most tuners (AC or Hamann) only have ET35 (or less) with 8.5 as their offerings as their existing 9.5 rims for E90 won't fit. Some local tire shop mentioned flush fitment for our cars has to be at ET40 or less for 9.5 rims. Also, Advan has just introduced new rear fitments for the F30, which is ET50 with 9.5. I really hope my observation is wrong though. You looking for 255/35-19 tire size for the rear right?

I don't think the real reason is shortage of M-sport parts. I think the sales is giving u false hope.
For F30 orders w/custom spec, production allocation currently is the month after placing order (i.e. order in July production in Sept), the only way u can get production slot for next mth (i.e. July order August production) is to buy cars that BMWHK ordered for stock, & those have fixed spec & colour combos.
According to my sales, factory will only confirm production to BMWHK 2-3 weeks before the actual production slot is allocated. Once ur sales can give u the order number supplied by factory then u're sure of the slot allocated.
