I have a few more big things in the works for the N17 as well.
Here are some teaser shots.

That's how mine sits now as well, and never really thought of the front fenders being up to high and making the car not look low enough. Gonna probably do the same and remove one or two locking collars. Good luck!

No, you would need to modify your upper strut mount to install a camber plate. I seriously hate the top mount design on this car. It's awful. I may investigate modifying the strut tower to accept Cube or Juke camber plates at some point.

I will likely be using one camber bolt on each side to dial it in. I didn't need them with the stock wheels though, there is plenty of clearance for the bicycle tires.

Grizz, have you had to deal with any clunking in the rear? I'm going to raise my rear up a few threads tomorrow because I think I'm maxing out the travel of the rear torsion beam.

i really haven't heard anything out of the ordinary. other than my rear feels really stiff going over any speed bumps at my work, kinda shakes my whole car. unless that's what you're referring to. lol

Nah, I've got a pretty loud clunk coming from somewhere in the rear. Still rides great, and I can't feel the noise, just hear it. I'm convinced I'm just too low (if there is such a thing.) I pulled the wheels off on my lunch break yesterday to check for loose bolts or signs that something was rubbing, but it all looked good. I'm making some adjustments tomorrow night and will report back if I find anything worth noting.

Yeah. I never heard anything from the rear. I'm probably not that low compared to you. But let us know what it is. Should record it :0

I found and eliminated the problem this weekend. I had my rear shocks set way too short, and there was almost no downward travel in the suspension. I added about an inch to the overall length of the rear shocks and all is well.
By the way - These BC coilovers really ride like a dream. I'm about 10 levels down from full hard in the back, and 15 levels down from full hard up front.

The fender gap won't go away, unless you take out the spring or lower the fender lip
