Talking My slicktop lightweight ///M sport 2.8i s drive build thread

Hello fellow members! I've picked up my X1 for a while now and finally got around posting pictures. My X1 is pretty stripped and lightweight. I am running style 351 wheels with 245/40/19 & 275/35/19 tires.
Options: M sport package, power seats, Lightning package. [B](weighed in at 3550 lbs with stock 18' wheels and 1/4 tank of gas)

Love how clean that looks. Those rims are pretty sweet. Will look even better with H&R springs.

Thank you! It was a real pain.Took me around 10 mins using a string floss. The time consuming part was cleaning the surface with goo gone

I wouldn't think. I don't know your rim size/offsets but I would guess the optional 19" style 225M would be pretty close to what you have. I think they are: 8.5x19 ET34 / 9.5x19 ET34

Thanks I believe he is running stock 225/255 tires, style 351 from the f10 are 19x8.5 et 33 and 19x9 et 44 so I probably won't be able to run spacers without rubbing after its lowered.

I presume the badges are stuck on with some sort of glue?
What is goo gun? and would you know of any other similar products that could be used to clean the surface. Thanks.

Goo Gone. Use fishing line, an old credit card, or dental floss to remove the badge. There are tons of write-ups online about how to do it.

This is nice these are similar to the wheels that come on the 123D here in the UK I believe.

Think I deffo need to get some H&R springs, even thought I'm buying this to try be sensible, I have them on my MK5 R32 at the mo.

Late reply, but you have plenty of room for spacers. Car looks good, just threw on my H&Rs in the driveway yesterday.

I was going to go with 12 mm front and 15mm rear spacers but deciding against it now as I will be swaping to style 220m wheels which are 9.5 et 23 in the rear and 8.5 et 29 in the front, pretty aggressive fitment on the X1 so it sits near flush in the rear.

Did you have to use spacers to get those to fit without rubbing? I've got a brand new set of those wheels and tires that are take off's of a customers F10 and would love to put them on the wife's e84.

They don't rub due to the high offset. I would recommend running spacers because the wheels are very tucked in.
