Your car looks good man! But those are those rear square csls in the pics?

Like in this one:

Were your fenders rolled? My front's are rolled, rears aren't. If necessary I will roll the rears too so I can fit the spacers and be sitting flush with the fender, but I don't want the rear end to look like it's sitting lower than the front if you see what I mean...
Both front and rears are rolled. Maybe I'm misinterpreting what your implying, but fender rolling is not visible from outside the car. That picture was from the PO, but when I got the car, it was riding at 12.9in F / 13.1in R.

It seems pretty typical on M3F to see the ride heights of about 0.5in higher in the front (hub center to fender).

And what do you mean by the two ride height measurements, like where are you measuring from?

Just a little update, so I ordered oem square csl from ECS, opened them up after receiving, noticed a few of them were damaged and had what it seemed like curb rash/chipped edges. Sent them back for replacements and waiting for the two to come in now.

Default Help with Square CSL tire size!

It might be too late but Fairfax BMW has the cheapest ZCP wheels for sale online. I got my set of square wheels for under $1600. Also I went with 265/30/19 all around. I have 12mm spacers in the rear.

could you paste a link to bmw fairax site you ordered the wheels from? I googled them but couldn't seem to find the page for wheels.
