there plenty of suspensions that car bring this car low, kw clubsport im pretty sure will take it to the ground almost, air ride destroys handling, its not something i would do to a m3, i wouldnt even do it between the last 12 vdubs i owned, look into a good set of coilovers

You think 1.5"(kw coils) is low? The AST coils claim 2"...but I don't know how accurate that number is

If you just want to go low, and don't care about the performance or ride whatsoever, then if you take the helper springs out of KW CS's, they go pretty damn low. Probably low enough to suit your needs. As for airride, there's airrunners, but DON'T do it imo.

Here's some pics of what I mean......this is nowhere near the lowest setting. The owner has raised it back up a bit since then.

Ofcourse..air ride is just for show to go up and down or be a low rider..you will never get the same handling capabilty with an air ride suspension as with a traditional coil spring setup

If you ever rode in an air ride you would understand...think floating mattress

you should do some research. and air ride setup is nothing like what you speak of.
