Thanks! What final offset are you running on the wheels to avoid perch rub?

Some pics for visual reference.

2006 E90 330i converted to complete M3 front suspension brakes etc.

KW CS 2ways (M3 version)

Apex Arc8 18x10 et 25

Bridgestone RE71R 275/35/18 Tires

KW stock 170/61/110 yellow spring, Pictured with 5mm spacer! Wouldnt fit without spacer.

Eibach 140/60/110 red spring, pictured NO spacer.

For reference, my spring perch is moved up Exactly 30mm higher for the eibach spring which is the same as the difference in springs and equal ride height as a result.

For the KW spring the spring perch is 10 turns up from bottom, Eibach spring I am 8.5 Turns down from the top.

Dead Horse I know, but maybe another visual will help someone else!

I have KW CS 3-ways. Will the same Eibach spring work (140/60/110)?

Yes, but check your spring rate to ensure it's what is on the car unless you are looking to change the spring rate. Some kits came with 90 nm, some with 110 nm.

Just looked and the spring shows 110-170*. Im assuming its 110nm then. I want to keep the same spring rate so it would be that same part #?
