I enjoyed reading your post here and appreciate the pics you took and posted as well.

One question I have that you might be able to answer for me, and I asked this question in a separate thread... I have the KW V2 coilovers currently on my 323i... any idea whether these will fit on an E92 M3? I plan on moving up to that vehicle by the end of this summer, so I'm trying to see if I can still make use of my current V2 coilovers or if I'll have to sell those and buy something compatible with the E92 M3.

Thanks,
Navin
Navin,

Wow I didn't see your reply for awhile. Hope all is well! Regards to compatibility.... you can see KW's site to check if both cars share the same parts number. Without checking on it myself, i dont think its the same. Usually part numbers tell you a lot about cross compatibility.

Peter

I have to say that I'm not as technical on suspension as I want to, but I wasn't aware that the E92 with ZCP does "continuous adjustments" after you do the initial mode selection. Someone else could probably chime in on this part.

The emulator module is a seamless install and it doesn't cause issues with other systems. I've gone a few thousand miles after the install and no problems to report.

Great to hear from you, my friend! I'm still learning what all mod options are available for the E92 M3 (that I plan to get later this summer)... it's a shame I can't use the mods I have on the 323i right now like the KW V2 coilovers, but hopefully I'll be able to find a buyer if I decide to part out.

Haven't seen this thread for a while. We installed KW V3s on the VMR M3, they do not have a separate reservoir.

Maybe its the newer version of the V3?........That link i posted is from EAS. The V3 Clearly has an external reservoir in the pic (maybe you call it something else?)

That is a generic picture from KW, it may be from the GT3 application.

Do you have to use a spring compressor if you are replacing with a full coilover and camber plate?
