Your car is stunning. Very mean looking. I can only imagine what you would look like coming up in the rear view.

thanks for your comments
as per the mileage on these tires that is what I got on the first set, I installed them when my car had only 1000 miles and currently I have 9,000 miles on it and I just installed a new set, see attached pictures of the old set, the tread is still ok on the front tires but totally gone on the rear ones

I'm two turns away from max low in the front and apparently two in the rear. Planning to bring the rear down just slightly.

Can you post some pics to see how it looks? The rear should be ok if you are 2 turns away from max low

You will get the best grip when these tires are warmed up but in SF with the high track temp you have awesome grip since the start

I had this kit installed in my previous M3 and put approximately 15,000 miles on it without any problems, I installed the same kit on my new M3 replacing only the old height adjusters as this was recommended by KW, I currently have 4000 miles on my new car and the kit still performs as the first day I installed it, I highly recommend you this system

Thank you so much for advice. I will def. get this sleeve. I just made research what is the major differences between coilover kit vs s/o . What I understand was coilovers for track people. And s/o is better option for DD for many people and I am a sunday driver so it will highly satisfy my Sunday I think . no need to pay $2k more for this impo. Did you install them by yourself ?

yes, you are correct, the s/o kit allows you to keep the EDC for daily driving while the coil over kit is more track oriented since it is a full coil over suspension system
I didn't install it by myself, I had it installed at the same time I had the S/C kit, brembos, GT4 exhaust installed but it shouldn't be too difficult if you have the proper tools

Actually you are close to me. I live in Parkland. I'm thinking to buy and install this kit in 2 months. Cuz I will be visiting my country. So maybe I can visit your mechanic.
