Good point.

When I get my tax returns I'll be doing a lot hopefully. First year out of college so I got a chance to work full time as opposed to the 200-300 returns I got working part time. Tint, paint the reflectors, wrap the roof, wheels, performance exhaust. I want to keep it as clean looking as possible. Find some nice scenery and hopefully I can check out your car soon when you do a shoot.

From the m-sport suspension. The ride is pretty much the same as stock haven't felt any difference since i installed them. Bmw quality shocks I hope they can hold out I dont track the car so it should hold up fine.
Do you think 19x8.5 ET 35 (Front) / 19x9.5 ET 38 (Rear) w/ the 1.6in drop in front / 1.0 inch drop in the rear I will rub?

You wont rub per say but you will bottom out regularly and rub when you do. But that are safe specs otherwise.

I have 1 inch larger wheels with about the same tire specs and the H&R sport springs which are lowered less than that with the M adaptive suspension and everytime i hit a good road bump, dip I bottom out.

Just talking from experience. Smooth roads and gentle driving you are fine. You wont rub even with 5 people in the car, but clearance is not very much so you will bottom out when the car wants to run full spring compression.

It bothers me a little...but not enough to change it. I like the look and the handling in corners is improved so I can deal with the occasional thump/grrrrrr sound from inside the fenders.

Are you saying using H&R Sport Springs will bottom out your car occasionally? I believe these springs are like the slightest drop offered in the market at present. I wonder if anyone out there experienced similar situation?
