Suspension Q's

Hi i have a 08 m3 and im new to the forum...i was just wondering wat type of suspension would give me a nice look (i want the car to sit flush with the top of the tire) and im gettin some 20" Klassen 8.2's and i want the tires to sit clean with the fenders(do i need spacers). Thanks for the feedback!

You wont get "flush" with just springs. You'll need coilovers. I have the KW Clubsports and I know that will let you get flush, even tucked. You wont need spacers with the Klassens.

If you just care about the looks, just get any brand of the springs they sell... H&R, RD, Eibach, etc...

If you care about performance, then get some coilovers... although there is no data showing that they are actually better than stock

As for whether your wheels will sit flush, it depends on the offset of your wheels and size of your tires (suspension does not really affect the "flushness" of your wheels). You need to provide us with more info.
