12/10 spacers, no drop, OEM 20" wheels

Decision on spacers on this weekend. Anyone have pics of an M5 running OEM 20" wheels, 12mm front /10mm rear spacers and stock springs? Thanks!

I'm on my phone so can't post a link, but look on the main page for my post about spring arriving in the Northeast. I posted three pictures of my car with the 12/10mm spacers added. I have the 20 inch wheels and stock suspension.

Thanks! Any chance you can post a shot of the side and rear?

Here's a shot of the rear. It's not great - I didn't realize how bad the shadow was until I got to the office Monday. I can take a better one this weekend.

You won't be disappointed. The pictures don't do it justice. The car looks great, much more aggressive in a subtle way.

I got mine dropped on the H&R's. Havent had the chance to try the cornering due to wet weather yet but the aesthetics make the car look so much better with the drop. Night and day. This is one mod everyone should do
