Adjust E90 Suspension to Level

Can anyone offer any advice: How to tweak the E90 M3 Suspension so that the car is relatively level, rather tham lower in the front, without compromising the suspension and ride Thanks.

Car was made that way for many reasons, most importantly weight distribution, very important and really one of the things that makes these cars handle very good specially on the track. I do track my car regularly so to me is very important. A good set of coilovers or adjustable sleeves will give you a range of adjustments that way you can tweak it however you like. My .02

To me coilover install should be followed by a corner weighing of the car to make sure it is equally balanced and a good string alignment with the driver sitting on the driver seat.

I think the body work of the car makes it look more raked than what it really is.

Correct me if I'm wrong but many after-market springs drop the front lower than the rears thereby creating a raked look in order to achieve even gaps between the wheel and the fender for both front and rear.

So only Dinan springs or adj Coilovers would enable you to achieve an 'even' drop I'm guessing?
