2008 BMW M3  [3.95]
Ohlins Road & Track Installed

I've ran the Moton Suspension for about 2 years now and I wanted to switch it up. I did some research and found out that Ohlins has developed a new kit for the M3. Only problem was Ohlins doesn't have them in stock for another 2-3 months. I found a vendor who had a set instock and had them overnighted. Can't wait to break these bad boys in on April 14th.

Sidenote: My Moton suspension will be for sale probably next week. They have 2 sets of springs (550/700, 800/1100) , kw camber plates, built by richard@mworld and ready to go.

Thanks Danny@mini corsa for the install.

Thanks gary for the awesome pictures.

Ohlins Road and Track Kit with Vorshlag camber plates









sorry for the crappy pictures, they are from my iphone.











just for kicks so you can compare how low it is...



stay tuned, more updates coming.

just put my new order for wheels in today.

Please bolt on a rear wheel up front and tell me if it's fit or rubs on the spring

Interested to hear your impression on the RT's, as I haven't received my set yet. I was told mid April.

Ball'n!!! Josh, the last picture is not really how low the car is right? Looks like the front wheels are parked in dip.

Old school setup.

I had these about 8 years ago. Bad ass setup. My old Aragosta/Swift setup put my Ohlins to shame. Moton was still top dog for me back in the day.

Nice setup!

Good stuff right there

Agreed though your parked on a angle/dip so the front doesn't sit that low
