Cool E92 M3 lowered on eibach and wheel spacers

Hey guys,

Just lowered my car on eibach springs a few nights ago and installed 18mm spacers on the front and 15mm on the rear.

Enjoy.

Nice...How much harsher would you say the ride is after the Eibachs? Do you feel the car handles a bit betteR?

It Definatly handles better (keep in mind i put the wheel spacers on as well) and the ride is slightly firmer and harsher but its hardly noticeable.

I think its a big improvement from standard!!

No rubbing at all.

I didnt chop or change the bumpstops either.

Im going to do a wheel alignment when i get a chance but for now the car drives really well!

When i save up some cash im going to buy a set of 20'' BBS LM's or LM-R rims. I dont know which wheels but im leaning more towards the LM-R

If yours does that then mine would as well. Im just going to take it easy over bumps. Thanks for the heads up.!

Part of the deal was when i bought my car from the stealership was that i was going to get my next scheduled service for free and they were going to either repair the holes or put a euro plat on it at their expense.
I was going to get it done when the service is due but im trying to find time to do it before that!
