This has to be one of my favorite pictures of an M3 on the track.

Great job by both Alekshop and Radiant, this beauty just gets better every time I see her.

I've lost count as to how many times I've visited this thread! Purely incredible!

What is his current ride height currently relative stock? Did you guys actually leave it at stock height with the KW V3s or is there still a slight drop?

Thanks! Great work.

It lower than stock a bit... I think it's in 26 inches neighborhood on all 4 corners

Here is a perfect example on how much suspension will compress when it's under load ... This is our 1M that had KW V3 and was .5 inches lower than stock.



You can see how it compresses under load ... lower the car low enough and you would loose the suspension travel and at the turn like this one you most likely going to loose your car if you are riding your bump stops.

I wonder how that lip is for everyday driving at that ride height. Because ride height looks close to ZCP setup maybe even a few millimeters lower than that like the GTS.

Can't get enough of this setup.

It's not that low compared to other splitters. My Challenge GT3 was lower.

Well said, and great philosophy in modding: function over form. Car looks great-

Yeah I've noticed how low others can be. Do you keep it on when you drive it on the street as well? Clearance good too?

Btw, I remember you from 1addicts, I had a BSM 135i too (former name Blacknredi). That was as clean as this. You have great taste.

Oh, I remember you.

The lower adjustable part of the splitter is removable. I've been driving with it off on the street because I did scrape on my driveway, but it's a moderately steep 1 car width opening. I take things at angles just to be safe, but have had no issues.

Yeah that makes sense to take it off for street driving, I would do the same. That's good to hear though. I have a few humps on my way home so was curious to know how it would be with them. Seems like with a bit of an angle and slow speeds I'll be fine.

Thanks!
