Thanks for posting this thread OP.

I have the same issues with the 7.5mm Turner spacers and 788 wheels/tires.

There's no issue to the liner or tires other than slight rubbing but I also checked with others lowered & running same setup. Actually another member is running 10mm with the OG (437) wheels and no rubbing so I think you are correct about the OG wheels and 788 setup.

Is it possible that the 788 wheels are slightly larger in diameter than 19inch or 437 wheels?

There is definitely some difference.

I actually fitted the turner 7.5mm front and 5mm rears in the end. I had to file down the front left hand side inner liner so it wouldn’t fowl and it’s been fine since. I carefully kept filing the offending area of liner, turning the wheels to full lock and repeating the process until there’s was no fowling.

In what way do these fowl interfere with the suspension while turning?

Please give your impressions of the AST on your M2, it's something I can't decide on especially as I get used to the cars stock suspension more.

What's low speed day to day like?
What's turn in like?
Mid-corner dynamics?
Braking?

Any issues?/general thought impressions?

Such a lot of cash without being able to test it first as the demo car is now gone.

The stock suspension starts to gel when north of 45mph and think a lot of the 'it'll throw you into the hedge' comments are exaggerations.

Cheers and hope you get your clearance issues sorted .
