    Think that will require archwork, particularly at the rear. 3 doors have less room at the back than the 5s.

    You may but not with a 60mm drop. 40mm and you might have been right.

    shouldnt have no greif at all mate the offset is perfect for lowering and the radus ofthe wheel is no bigger than 17"s or 16"s

    my rear is around 50mm and have no greif with my 18"s.
    Only dvice would be be carful of what body kit you have, to low a kit and it will make the car a nightmare to drive daily as it will catch every bump ect going.

    mine is 60-70mm on the front with 19's and they only catch on full lock going over a bum of speed bump.

    so with 18's u wont have a probelm, maybe the rear but that easy to sort!
