Pics of KW3 dropping all the way down?

Can someone post their pics of their Ms with KW3 dropping all the way down? I have mine dropping all the way down but I always feel like that isn't the case.

i run my all the way down... and the ride height is just about perfect...

i think KW did this to keep people from slamming the car and killing the geometry.. to keep the car handling well...

You have a coupe.. OP has a sedan.. it seems like the sedan doesn't drop as low.. if that's possible.

Looks perfect.. Are you guys saying both front and rear dont go as low on a sedan?

I just got my k dubs on yesterday and will setup the height today or tomorrow so this gives me a pretty good idea.. What rebound/compression settings are you guys running?

I agree. NIce stance. But sometimes some think - the lower,the better(in case of handling)

There was room to go a bit lower from these pics. But when its dropped that low it handles like crap
KW's need to have travel in them to handle really well

The new KW's don't drop down super low as they did in the e46's. Even the clubsports on full drop doesn't go THAT low. If you're looking for coilovers to be dumped, KW's are not the coilovers for you, unless your willing to modify them and sacrifice ride quality and handling. Here's clubsports on full drop:
