Looks broken. Tucking the whole tire and part of the wheel in the rear and only half the tire in the front? Does not compute IMO.

LOL! Hahahaha.

If your that low, going in and out of driveways and dips is definitely a hassle.

If only the undercarriage could talk...

Another example of form over function. Don't get me wrong, that M3 really looks good with that stance.

My M3 was that low about 2 months ago and all of you are correct. Even with decent or great suspension it felt like crap around town with 30 series and 35 series tires. I raised it up and now it feels a lot better.

Currently running 35 series tires.

Ruining a car for the sake of what few percieve to "look good" is just dicked up imo.

Racey? No

Ricey? Yes

Now that we've dumped them as low as they'll go, the next trend will surely be M3s with lift kits, Fox shocks, and 33" knobbies. Yee-haw.

Way too low in the rear!! Should be raised to match the front better.

If it doesn't rub or bottom out, then SOLID. I think it's boss.

Dude, you're high... wayyyy more riced out e46's out there. Given time, I'm sure it will be the same with the e9X's. Taste is subjective, but some people have more money than brains.

I'd like to see the rear come up like .5", but the owner seems to like it and that's what really matters.
