Drop looks great! Would love to have these but not sure if these are suitable for the track.

I've heard good and bad things. I'm actually planning to track soon, so I'll post up my experiences afterwards...

That over time with heavy use at the track, your stock shocks/struts will go out eventually or become "sloshy."

It actually looks great on your car. Most of the ones I have seen have a one finger gap up front but with the spacers you made it work.

For the price most folks may want to go this route VS full suspension..

car sits really nice

Nice drop. I had narrowed my choice down to the kw sleeve over kit, or the RD Sport Springs. Opted for the RD because I didn't forsee a need for the adjustability. I was wrong, though I really like the drop and how the car feels with the RD Springs, I could really use a little more clearance to not rub. Going to the 19×11's it rubs just a bit, not enough to create much of problem, but I would really appreciate that adjustability right now,

Thanks man! They were actually taken in Milpitas off of McCarthy Ranch and in Fremont by Dumbarton Bridge.

I agree, the spacers made a huge difference in the final outcome...and this is the best option IMO vs going full coilovers.

I can't say as I haven't ridden in an E9X M3 with that application. Maybe someone with experience in both can chime in here...

Thanks dude! I'm currently running 19x11 et25 with a 5mm spacers in the rears with zero rubbing at all. May have to do in big part to the tires I chose...Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 275/35, it's a very mild stretch. Still very meaty.

I honestly can't give you a good answer to that. I installed this suspension 1 month after I purchased the car. Within that one month I haven't driven the car spiritedly enough on the stock suspension to make a comparison. With this current setup however, I have driven hard on it a few times...no complaints with the handling thus far.
