Man that's low...is the front lip still attached? Geezus...it may look really good but man the rid must be punishing and also the pocketbook too in replacement parts/repairs I'd think while driving it around here.

I love the way it looks but there is an issue I am having with KW. I cannot discuss it right now until I hear back from KW.

Here is an updated pic.

I guess we can change the title to " KW's ArE NoT FoR M3 "
I hope they work out for you. That is a big change from the EDC with springs that you had before.

In my opinion, BMWs are not the car to "pimp" out. I definitely like that you've made it your own but I dunno about the lack of suspension. BMW is known for it's awesome suspension. To take that away is to mar the very image of a BMW. Furthermore, M3 is a "sport car." It has tighter suspension and therefore needs the springs to have a comfortable ride. But, all the same, I still like you made it your own.

What does that mean???

bmw suspension is good, but in my opinion after market coilovers are better for some of us. Have you ever driven an e46 m3 stock vs. e46 m3 with pss9???? If you did - you would not keep on talking about awesome suspension.
