KW's need to have travel in them to handle really well

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:
Awesome, what spacers sizes do you use front and rear? 18/15mm?

Thats 15/12 front and rear with cut fenders. Now, the rear is switched to a 10 and the car is dropped about another inch.

Please don't slam your cars. With relatively soft springs you need sufficient compression travel for the car to handle well. This is an M3. Not your typical low rider with air springs.

Take a look at the Turner or Fall-Line M3 race cars. Even those cars are not slammed.

Try taking out your rear ride adjuster. thats what I did and I got the rear to tuck into the fender, along with the front settings being all the way on the lowest setting
