Any updates on the spacers that would fit? I was thinking something like 10 or 12 mm front and 12 mm rear.
Thank you

Is your car with the H&R springs?
Any rubbing? I don't want any.

Thank you very much

Thanks again

And another question: are these springs custom tailored to the 1///M or are they straight from the M3 offering? What are the spring rates? Thx mpower2

There is no rubbing in the back side.

When you does install no Springs, you can.
Is also available with 10 mm.
Because it is so slight, not disturbing.

Thanks again

Curious - these "lowering springs" are the same as H&R "Sport Springs" PN # 28910-1 ?

Thanks

Inside the wheel arch on the left and right below the oil cooler.
There is a bulge for the wheels already there.
Even at 10mm will not work ....

Now I understand. I'll take a look under the wheel arch to see exactly what you mean.

That being said, I also understand it is no rubbing on the fender, in the front or in the back?! Right?

Thanks for your help

Any one know how the H&R lowering springs get along with our stock shocks?
It seems in other communities, people running lowering springs on stock shocks blow out the stock shocks pretty quickly, even ~10000km.
Any ideas how our stock shocks hold up?

Only putting springs will not in the long term break the suspension and make it leak?
