I hear ya. That's why I started this tread. Only thing is that this M3 definitely comes with a better stance then the e46.

+1 35's is the lowest I would ever consider & that's with a serious drop. It's just dangerous.

I had a bad experience with springs on my e46. Shocks go in about 2 seconds give or take
