    Hi all

    I had my v-maxx coilovers fitted last week, will put up pics when I get it set to the propper height.
    Ride feels better than standard & body roll is almost non existant.

    When I put the front wheels back on, the wheel was hitting the the spring on the coilover & would not go on properly (I have 19" 5 spoke AC Schnitner wheels off an E46), so I tried putting my old E36 17" M3 wheels back on & the tire was still hitting the spring.

    I have cured this by putting on some 15mm hubcentric spacers, but I'd like to get rid of these as they should not be needed.
    They also make the wheels stick out too much.

    Has anyone had similar issues?
    If so, what did you do to fix it?
    I have not yet had the geometry set up correctly, but was wondering if I'd need adjustable top mounts or something simple like that?

    Any help or suggestions would be greatfully appreciated.
    Cheers.

    Stu
