      The BMW in the OP is nice for sure. Good example.

      Biased here, but I am very happy with the end result on the 311RS. The wheels and tires fit just right, the car rides smooth on the street, and just ripps on track. To me, it's perfect

      OH YEAH.

      What kind of suspension are you running on your car if I may ask? It is perfect. So is the BMW in the OP.

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

      I think that BMW looks great but it's about an inch too low. Also I like to see less wheel and meatier tires. The E36 M3 and E39 M5 had perfect stance from factory.


      Currently I think the Lexus GS F-sport has a perfect stance

      The Pontiac G8 has some proper stance and you don't have to mess with the suspension or anything just throw some wheels and that's it.

      That 911 warrants a change of pants. I'm pretty happy with the way my fire sits right now, I don't have any pics but it's almost identical to this:

      I doubt that's a stock suspension. But it looks awesome regardless.

      The BMW is too tall on too small tires mounted on wheels an inch too big that are replica LMs.

      I'd prefer no stretch but that's a pretty nice looking Mk3. Any pics of that Mk1 Scirocco in the background of the 2nd pic.

      As much as I love that RS4 posted earlier, I really like how mine sits for street use. This is after a lot test fitting and some trial and error.
      800lb springs up front and 1200lb rear. Front fenders slightly rolled. 285/30 19x10.
      Corner balanced and sits level all around with my 150lb butt in the driver seat.

      BTW, I can run 4 people, including my brother and SVT2888 (who are each over 200lbs) on the same side with no rubbing whatsoever, and it still handles on rails - Stasis Ohlins MS FTW

      to the BMW in the OP. That's the look I was going for when I put on the H&R Touring Cup Kit on my GTI:



      The S4 that I just got has the H&R OE sport springs, and I gotta say I like the outcome:



      I kinda wanna put spacers on the S4 to align the wheels with the fenders.

      What do you guys think?

      Whatever corner balances the best. This generally means different wheel gap on each wheel.
