Why not just lower on springs so that you don't lose your edc function? H&R springs on competition give it a nice drop imo. PAKMAN had that setup on his white e92 M3 on stock competition wheels with spacers and it looked really good. And the springs are only a few hundred. If you are interested in used springs with very low miles, my friend may have a set within the next week. Let me know.

it definitely could be a way worse 4x4 affect versus other cars out there. the float worries me the most and how violent it can be over connecting points in our roads up here.

I hated them, but I'm really sensitive to that kind of stuff.

I'm going to post a full Dinan Stage 3 setup soon... (it will fit both E90 and E92, on the E92, you just don't use the rear spring spacers)

what did you hate about the HR springs? And was it b/c they were just springs in general or particular HR springs.

I also have no problems with the H&R springs.

However, I'm looking into the KW Adjustables. Is there much difference between the KWs and the H&R other then being able to adjust the height and price?

They were WAY too boing boing bouncy for me. But i'm really sensitive to being under damped. What I could feel is the bump stops being used way too much, it'd make the front spring rate just skyrocket partway though a bump.

I felt out of place the last time I went to the milpitas meet. Everyone had an e30.

I want to go to cars & coffee if everyone decides to wake up

Why does the iPhone app always cut off my msgs
