Thanks..your ride looks awesome...any concern on hitting the front lip while parking?

Thanks. No real concern thanks to air suspension but I still am careful. I'm used to driving cars that are lowered more than mine. Mine isn't even lowered...just the stock low air setting. You just have to be careful getting too close to the parking blocks when you go in nose first.
 
how much for the sideskirts? USD?
I ordered the lip and the side skirts together. At the time that I ordered, both the lip and side skirts (a pair) were 132 GBP each. The exchange rate was 1 USD = 0.7395 GBP so it was $178 US (if I did my math right). I think they dropped the price of the side skirts but raised the price on the front lip. Shipping was another 80 GBP.
 
what was the root cause? ie why would the clearance be fine initially but require spacers eventually?

@dk10438 I wanted to post a small update since you had the same offset. Even with the 3mm spacers, under very extreme load I can still hear minor scraping. The way I avoid it is by entering steep driveways more head on vs cutting in at an angle. This keeps the load more evenly distributed.

I had some recall work done on my car and asked the SC to inspect the rear suspension for signs of worn bushings. They said all the bushings still look fine. So it’s a bit of a mystery as to why this started happening all of a sudden, only other thing I can think of is tire wear. I’ll test that theory in about four months when I need new tires.
 
Honestly I don’t know. But the car is lowered ever so slightly with +2mm links all around so there IS some additional camber compared to stock. However, I did experiment with ride heights and it rubs the same amount no matter the ride height.

what’s the name of your friends shop? By any chance does Shane happen to be a BMW enthusiast?

Very Nice wheel... is the same wheel used on the Model S record time run at Nurburgring?

What is the price for the 19x8 ET20 wheel with the stock 245/45/19 tire? Thanks

Good eye, they look very similar to our SV104, but they are not our wheel.

Here is some of our SV104 track action shot. Our SV104’s spoke design are more muscular, sharper and all track proven:)

that's really odd that there's some rubbing even with 3mm spacers. I put my phone through the spokes of my wheel and took some pictures to see how much clearance there was with the car under full load and it looked like I had at least 4-5 mm
