IND presents KWs sleeve kit for the E9x M3

KW Automotive has been an innovator of suspension products for nearly 20 years, and has created a new innovation for fans of the E9x M3. KWs sleeve kit includes springs that are carefully matched to the factory dampers, and threaded height adjusting collars to allow for a full range of adjustment in front and rear ride height. KWs sleeve kit also allows full EDC functionality.

The sleeve kit allows you to adjust height from a .5-1.2 drop in the front, and from a .2-.5 drop in the rear for a great appearance.

http://parts.ind-distribution.com/pr...20M3%5E706.php

Kit Includes:
- 4 Lowering Springs
- F/R Spring Perch Adjustment Tools
- Height Adjustable Spring Perches
- Strengthened bump Stops
- KW Shock Sleeves

I have...from IND, installed there

It has been about 2 months with them on Chicago roads. A mix of city broken construction roads and highway/suburban smooth roads.

It feels similar to stock, a little stiffer but nothing most people would notice if you didnt tell them you had changed the suspension a bit. I can still tell the difference between the three EDC modes, but tend to keep it in Sport since I have read this is the more properly valved setting for the drop I added.

Coming from a previous 335i with koni fsd/eibach combo, this ride is much more compliant. I would recommend it without any hesitations. I have put about 2500 miles on them.

if you have any questions feel free to Pm me, happy to answer

Thanks for chiming in.

Quick questions:
  1. Is your EDC non ZCP spec?
  2. Do you ever use EDC soft anymore or does the new spring rates render it useless?

1) I have ZCP spec EDC
2) You can definitely still use the soft setting, its not as soft as it used to be, but its notably softer than when you have it set to sport (the three settings are pretty distinct)

Sorry to nag...

Handling & Performance aside.

Could you say the following for ride, comfort & compliance during normal driving:
  • KW Sleeve + EDC/Comfort = OEM ZCP + EDC/Normal
  • KW Sleeve + EDC/Normal = OEM ZCP + EDC/Sport

TIA!

That is probably pretty close

happy to answer questions. never a problem

honestly, the ride quality is very good, I dont think you will have any concerns with it.
