I take it that you are using 205.45.17 tires?
Also how much is the car lowered compared to where it was at first? We are talking about an R56S right or is it a JCW model?

Yes 205.45.17

It started as a base r56s.

I would say about an inch our so lower.
Here's a pic with the same wheels and tires before it was lowered.

Also, rear camber is adjusted to -2.0 now that it is lowered.

Did you ever think about fitting in wider tires? Say for example 215.45.17 or 215.40.17?

Didn't consider wider ones. I'm not sure they would fit with it this low though.
