No 20mm, sorry. IMHO, it's much too wide for i3 as the tires will push past the fenders.

Agreed, I recently put 15mm's all around (off my X3m) and like the stance.

Another happy AST Upgrade owner

Just an FYI, that I installed AST springs myself this summer, on a 2015 Rex, with new Bilstein struts, and love both the look and the ride. It's just enough to make it look a little cooler, and seems to calm down the ride a bit. No regrets here.

Turns out 15/18 spacers are too much for coilovers (at least at my ride height and dampening levels). Had BCR coils installed with MS spacers from EAS. Tom’s right, 20mm would definitely be too much, and for me, 18mm was too much. Rears kept rubbing. Increased ride height half an inch and moved 15mm to the rear, that fixed the issue. Gonna be ordering 12mm’s for the front.

I have 12mm in stock when you're ready, just let me know.

So I thought I'd post some shots of my AST springs and 15mm front and 20mm spacer rear shots.

I had the AST springs re-powder coated blue to match the blue accent colors.

No rubbing but she does handle great ! I can see having some coil overs could cause some issues.

It's got that perfect flush look without having them stick past the fenders
