TC Kline DA and P3 Install

I dropped off my car to TC personally this morning at 9am and we talked about what I'm looking for etc. He is working on installing his DA kit, adj. top hats, springs and the P3 guage/heater vent. Here are a couple pics to tease you guys with.

I'll get back to you guys on weds once I've got tires/wheels installed and alignment done. Hopefully it'll warm up here by then!

What can I say, TC knows what he's doing, period...I've watched him race at Mid-Ohio countless times. He's not only smart on parts, but he's a hell of a wheel man too, total package for our BMWs.

^Very nice and I'll let TC know when I see him today.

I should be dropping off my tires and wheels to him today, as long as the UPS guy shows up with my wheels. I'll see if I can't grab a few more pictures while the car is on the lift for you guys.

Enjoy the TCK DA setup!

A couple of questions:
1. Are you using thrust washers or Torrington bearings on the F struts?
2. Are you using adjustable F sway bar end links? As the car is lowered the geometry of the sway bar is changed and it can reduce its effectiveness or cause it to bind. Also, the F sway bar mounting bushings are really tight on most e9x M3s so if the bar isn't re-aligned properly (eliminating preload also is important), you'll most likely end up with a "squealing-squeaking" sound as you turn the steering wheel. However, in your case, this might not be an issue because you're having a H&R F sway bar installed

Raucky just picked the car up and he was just a little excited to get out on the open road with it I'll let him spoil you with some pictures, and then I'll post some more myself here and on our Facebook page.

Here's a couple teasers:

Picked up the ride tonight and wow...totally transformed the car. Granted the tires are cold and new so grip wasn't great tonight. Just the overall feel of the car is amazing compared to stock, it rides even better than stock! I'll get some pics up tomorrow when the sun is out.

I didn't get to take any pics yet because it snowed and it's back up in the air again, thx for sharing!

Coilovers are great, I can't wait to really use them in the up coming months.
