My MCS only has 17" alloys as I didn't want to make the ride too hard but there is a a pretty large gap to the arches - anyone else notice this? Looks too big to me??
I agree! The look you want is a personal thing however. A car that is "slammed" isn't my thing, but I do notice a larger than desirable gap on some cars I see. I believe a lot of it has to do with the wheel style and car setup.The F56 suffers with awful wheel gap!
If you want to remove it, then look into coilovers.
Should be part of the normal detailing at any dealer. But, this discussion makes me wonder if some of the new JCW's I've spotted at dealers by looking at Autotrader here in the USA haven't forgotten to do something to the springs. Because, some of the cars I reviewed had horrible "gap" while others weren't all that bad!Are the "ties" not blocks that are wedged into the springs somehow.
It would be surprising and shocking if a dealer left them in place ?
