All of them can go really low. The problem is that the lower you go, the less suspension travel you have which results in poor handling and poor drive-ability (comfort).

Unfortunately, the m3 suspension design doesn't allow for a lot of lowering if you want to maintain EDC and a good ride.

I ran the GC sleeve kit at full low all the time. It was pretty low. Ride was bad. Now I run KW V3 at the same height and it rides much better and can definitely go much lower.

Club sports seem to go lowest. While others usual drop is around 2.5 inch.
