      Saw this guy on the freeway. This is what I consider the perfect stance. perfect wheel gap and drop, no camber bull****, and just the right offset. sorry about the crappy phone picture though.

      Let's see what you guys think is the perfect stance.

      Not bad. Just well fitted.

      This is my favorite

      Looks like about a 1/2 inch of suspension travel. Looks nice, but I need to keep my fillings in my teeth intact.

      Looks like it would rub the fenders under hard cornering. I'd raise it an inch and call it a day.

      Though it's still infinitely better than what people usually refer to "stance" as.

      That's how I like it. Where the fenders sit just above the tires.

      saw him driving along normally. no super stiff bouncy suspension, and he seemed to change lanes fine. didn't seem to rub. It must be a thing with BMW's or something because they all look like it might rub, but it doesn't.

      Do BMW's need to have their fenders rolled?

      I like it. To me, that's what "lower it" should mean. Sadly, it tends to mean "retard it."

      *not an expert* but typical independent suspension designs tuck the wheel inward as they travel up, thus allowing fairly tight fender-tire gaps. chances are he's running aftermarket coilovers, so his suspension travel IS less than stock BUT still decent. the car's i've ridden in that have a similar *shudder* stance (hate that word) ride noticably firmer than stock but, if set up correctly, are not bouncy or otherwise uncomfortable.

      I'm so happy to see other people on Vortex that agree with not slamming **** on it's face.
      I hate seeing rim tuck, and tire tuck slightly annoys me.
      I would almost say 1/2 inch higher for the BMW in the OP, but if it's not bouncy and doesn't rub it's perfect.

      I like my car to be functional because if I want to take a corner hard I should be able to without smacking axles and rubbing fenders.

      I really think my 2010 Golf TDI has a perfect stance in factory form (the following blue one is 71sbeetle's car, but looks identical):

      Both the BMW and Audi look good

      That's what I like, i.e. not tucked up under the fender with a slight gap between it and the tire.

      So is TCL giving in and accepting "Stance" as a verb ?

      My own car, but I am partial to this. Euro drop. Real tires, and the fenders riding just off the tread.
