KW Sleeve-Overs - Before & After Pic

Just wanted to share a pic of my car before and after KW Sleeve-Overs installed...might help for those considering this option.

The first pic is with stock suspension, the second pic is with KW Sleeve-Overs adjusted all the way down.

Thanks for sharing! That's my next mod. Is the rear also down to the lowest setting?

I believe it lowers all E9X M3's the same: 0.5" to 1.2" FRONT and 0.2" to 0.5" REAR.

No problem...yes it is. Front and back are all the way down. Also it rides great at this height...very comfortable.

Good to know! May I ask how long has it been since you installed them? I've been reading that after settling, the height will drop a little more. Is that the case for you?

I've had them in for a little over a month now...and yes, it has settled a bit more than in the pic. Not by much though, but noticeable.

I think mine kept settling for a few months. For example, my rears are not all of the way down but my rear looks as low as yours.

Oh nice nice...it was just installed 3 days prior to taking the pic above. Currently my car is slightly lower than it is in that pic.

Thanks! ...oh nice, congrats! I haven't got an alignment yet because I'm throwing a new wheel/tire setup on my car on Monday. I will get an alignment afterwards though. It rides great, it's stiffer than stock of course but very comfortable.
