The different versions listed above are due to the fact that the shaft size in the rear differs between EDC and non-EDC cars. If your car has EDC then you want the "EDC" version of the suspension and vice-versa. It is actually possible to install the EDC version on a non-EDC car but you will need to purchase some of the suspension parts from BMW to convert your car's mounting points to the EDC version.

As far as the 2-way vs 3-way system goes you obviously have more adjustability with the 3-way version which adds low-speed compression adjustment (IIRC). Most people buy the 2-way version because its about $2k less and it performs very well. I have the 3-way and honestly don't use all of the adjustability available.
Thanks for taking the time to explain that Slicer, I really appreciate it!

Theres a frozen red one at bhbmw. I drive by just to look at it. These pictures dont do it justice.
Sorry, It's a bit late, and I'm not trying to thread jack, but that beauty is now mine. This is my first post so I can't really make a new thread but glad to join the forum. If anyone sees me driving around LA with those BHills plates, feel free to stop me. If i'm not busy, coffee is on me.
Will do!

Check out op's car. Lots of perf mods. Come to the track with us?

Watching this car go at it on BW#13 was A+. Something about that color combo at speed that makes it awesome.

I have a 2013 Frozen Red as well and love the stance on your car. Did your car come equipped with EDC by any chance? Trying to figure out which version of the KW's to purchase.
Yeah, came equipped w/ EDC. She squats on KW Clubsports. Thanks!

It's actually easier to maintain than regular gloss paint. Just wash and wipe and that's it. I can't buff, polish, and rub the finish. Also, I can't apply silicone base products. I only use Dr B's matte paint products.

I think gloss black wheels and BBK's would really set off the car with that matte paint. I saw a Frozen White 650 at the dealer and it's one of those colors you have to see in person. Any other future plans for the car?
Yeah, I'm getting spanked by other M3's at the track running 295's in the fronts for better grip. Lol. You know who you are. So planning to get 18x10.5's in the front to fix that problem.
