So After a long couple of months, and thanks to JP Performance in BC,
I got my spacers, Brock Rings, and Caps and bolts.
Here are the results.

17x8.5 Brock B1 - 235/45- 15mm spacer (offset -2 IIRC)
17x10 Brock B1 - 255/40- 12mm spacer (offset +8 IIRC)

1.5" Lowered/Bilstein Sports
Slight rear fender Roll

Now, the question is, Caps or no caps?

I may go lower now that the car is not going to be Daily driven anymore. Gonna Have to see about that.

A wetsand is definitely in the works. Just haven't had time to deal with it.

Definitely no strech.

Fwiw, I think I have more poke than you.;)

Poke is easy when you're not slammed :)

WOW!! I love those wheels, caps on for sure!!

That is a great looking car!, I'd have gone with a nicer tire with a more suiting sidewall but either way its wicked!!

I want to go back to clear, you've only re-affirmed that for me.

Thanks.

You might have to do em both though, front and back.... might look odd otherwise, no?

Good point, however I LOVE the ass of the car, so I am not doing ANYTHING to disrupt its flow.
You never look at the rear AND front at the same time, right? It could potentially work...

Now that it will not be the DD, but more of a evening/weekend car, I am highly going to consider going a touch lower. Gonna have to see if the funds are there.

Are you running coils? I know E34's are a bitch to lower w/o coilovers, no one offers a low spring, I think the lowest offered is from Apex.

No I am not running coils. I am sitting on Intrax springs which are actually quite stiff. With the upgraded bushings, suspension, and wide tires, the car handles amazing.

I am afraid that if I get coils, lower it a lot more, it will loose its balance and great handling, and it will be mor for looks, as opposed to looks AND performance.

actually after looking at the car again i think its good, leave it as is

money is better spent on other things... 99.9% of people wont notice a 0.09 mm drop. it's the law of 9's don't you know :D

Is it comfortable? Does it handle well? Leave it :-)

Some looks were made for show cars.

I have enough car drama let alone blown inside walls, rubbing issues and mangled wheels.
