I'll send him a email and see if he will respond back to this.


Sidenote, some of you guys said some pretty stupid/rude shit. I guarantee you, if you weren't sitting behind a computer and keyboard, you wouldn't be saying those things.. Food for thought.

Fixed..

The goal of a suspension should not be visual..lol

Unfortunatly thats what people care about stance..not improving handling capabilities

Didnt know corner balancing was used to "tuck" anything in..

rather so that each corner "applies" the same amount of force to the ground..lol

Obviously the guy has it low because he tracks his car. BMW is not going to put out track suspension for a normal M3. The R&D on the M3 stock suspension is set for everyday spiritual driving and not race and thats why we have companies like Kw and bilstein that tweak suspensions for the track and one of the tweaks is lowering the car for better handling characteristics and centre of gravity. I would be rolling that suspension all day knowing how much I like being on the track over the street. I also think it looks sick sitting low but maybe be annoyed about speed bumps and pulling in places but its defenitly used for function with the Clubsports on the track.

if the rear was raised a bit so it doesn't cover the top of the tire..the stance will be perfect! none the less, it's eye candy

I couldnt have my car that low being a vert... but nothing wrong with this ride.. the LMs compliment the car. If everyone had their M looking the same it would be pretty fucking boring.

What you fail to understand is that even for the track this is too low..its common knowledge that lower does not always mean quicker..and the fact is dumping a car too much detracts from handling capabilties and means a slower car ..pick it up a bit...you would be surprised how times would improve
