sorry, if i sound like a noob. This is the first time i've heard of this. Can it be done on any car ?

Currently i have a 95 M3 with eibach/bilstein combo and i just want to go TINY bit lower w/o dashing out the the $$$ for coils.

If you could pm me with a little explanation, that'd be great.

Thanks a lot


Great looking car btw OP, I love the ADV.1's

How far away from the lowest setting are you? Seems like the lowest I've seen a KW Sleeve Over and want to try to guess the right height when I install mine to minimize the need for adjustments.

I still have 2 more turns to max low but my tires are low profile so it will also depend on your tire and wheel size to make it lower, if I lower it more I will have rubbing issues and will certainly scratch my front spoiler

I appreciate it. I don't want to be too low, but want no wheel gap. I'll be running 255/30/20 and 285/30/20 tires.

Leave at least one turn to low max and you will be ok

It can be done on any car that has a kit available for it. Not sure how it would work with aftermarket springs and shocks. I haven't owned a e46 m3 so someone else here or over on the e46 section will be able to help you out or contact KW or ground control directly.

Hey Bobby, tires are as follows:
front: 265/30ZR19 93Y RD
Rear: 295/30ZR19 100Y RD
These are legal street tires so they are ok for street and track use, they handle extremely well on track but don't last too long on street, I just changed the last set for a new one though the front tires still had 40% tread left, rears were totally worn out, they lasted about 8000 miles with a few tracks in between

I was wondering this as well. I use R888s on my track wheels but if your R888s lasted 8000 miles with a few track sessions in between, I would argue that you are getting almost as much mileage as some people are getting on their PS2s since I have heard that some people are only getting 7-8000 miles on a set of rear PS2s.

Your car is stunning. Very mean looking. I can only imagine what you would look like coming up in the rear view.
