Anyone got pics of 20"s lowered with springs?

Hey guys...

Im thinking about getting a set of 20" BBS LM-R wheels and dropping the car with some Swift springs. At the begging I thought about getting the KW S/O kit but everyone says that you can't go any lower with a S/O kit than with just regular springs... and it that is the case I would just go with the springs. Full Coilovers are just too expensive for what Im wanting to do.

I was just wondering if anyone here had pics of a E92 M3 using 20" wheels and lower with just springs.

Tons of cars on this forum with lowering springs and 20's. Including mine. If you look at my user pf and see threads I've started you will find some. Gotta use the search my man.

You're getting LM-R's but can't afford Coilovers? ? You're obviously a funny guy. Lol

Just go to the "Aggressive fitment" thread in the wheel section.

HE does state that he has no use for coilovers.

I was conflicted in the same way, I ended up buying a set of eibachs but then fell inlove with the KW sleeve kit. My personal opinion, get a sleeve kit- it's worth it!!
