i received mine a few days ago :-)



i already have three other bmw cars equipped with kw clubsports and am pretty happy with them.
it is the same hardware as fitted to the gts and crt cars... although the clubsport is a little more hardcore concerning the setup.

more pics of the M3 kw clubsport here:
http://www.m3racing.de/fahrwerk.html

i hope i'll find time to install it soon!

So it was your set that arrived at BaanVelgen...

Mine is supposedly arriving in Hendrik's hands today... hopefully he can ship them bad boys out right away!

FYI the GTS setup is not a straight-up KW Clubsport swap if I havent mistakenly understood your comment.. Theres another thread in this section regarding this topic discussed in length by Richard@M-World

Did you also get these from Hendrki@BaanVelgen?

Update!

I just had my KW Clubsports installed at MRF Engineering (Malek) and I love them. I have included a few crappy photos. I am gonna drive for a few hundred miles before I give a review. Malek @ MRF is the best. If your in OC give him a try hes really cool, honest and stands by his work.

For anybody that thinks Clubsports are too harsh for streets give me a call and I will give you a ride. They are completely street compliant and they absorb small bumps like nothing. It almost feels like you on rails.

Wow, that is pretty low. It will get even lower when it settles. You can probably reset the height then and redo the alignment.

Its low but it clears many things. I have not had any problems clearing small driveway ramps or speed bumps. I think i have about 5 inches of clearance on the front lip.

dude that means you have like 2 inches of clearance on the felt undertray? no speed bump is 2 inches tall, or driveway for that matter.
