guys i need advice,
after seeing lucky645ci gorgeous black 645. i need mine done. i have 22" wheels , i dont want any body mods... including the plastic inner wheel arches. .. i know the fronts are 9" , rears are 10.5" . not sure about offsets . but i guess i can find out . so my question is . how should i do it... i been told eibach .. drop it 30mm but i will need to remove front plastic inners. but the backs should be o.k ..does this sound right ? can i use spacers or something , so i dont have to remove the inner arches.

This is where wheel offsets come in critical. Look at member TBal's 6series, and see if you like how that one sits. If so, contact him for the info on the springs and if it rubbed. As for Lucky645ci's car, that one is one H&R coilovers. If your looking for that type of outcome, and you want to keep your 22's, get ready for some hardcore modding.

cheers for the replies fellas. i really want to keep my 22's with no modding, so i think coilovers are out. could i get lucky645's look using just springs... how much is that dropped ?
i will have to try get the offsets. not just yet though as the wife is out in the car

going to have a look at t's now

Your going to need coilovers to achieve that drop...springs won't do the job.

Yup, just springs alone, and no modding will not even come close to that. Springs, 22's, and maybe some minimal modding, will look like TBals's car. Nice and simple.
