KW has something for all you lowered cars, especially those with a lip

It's the Hydralic Lift System (HLS) that can be retrofitted to most coil over systems. It's just $$$$. LIke as much as most coil overs.

That's pretty cheap then, considering how much coilovers cost to start with

I don't believe it's officially out for the M3 - those systems are pretty expensive - you really just see them on the Lambo's, porsches etc. If there is demand for it, I don't see a reason KW wouldn't release it.

How much do they run?
I wonder if it also has a lifetime warranty?

Great find

Roberuta offers cup kits for different suspension starting at 1/3 of the price. Just a little FYI in case people are interested.

Looks like that one does front and back. How much is that?

It depends on the application and what you are looking for. Certain cup kits are only compatible with certain aftermarket coilovers; others are compatible with OEM. Front and rear are sold separately. All of these variables determine the overall price.

Here is a link to our Top Secret USA website. This should give you a good idea on what to expect.

Not sure how "CAF" prices relate. However, does the $3500 include the lift kit as well as coilovers? Or just the lift kit?

The hydrolic lift systems are around $3K. This does not include the coilover system. Tuners like Techart and Novitec have already included these systems in their lineups. Techart's system with PASM coilover is $8995. The cost would be similar to this for an E9X M3 with EDC (if ever developed). Cost might be a too high for M3 market.
