Looks good mate. Is it just me or does the front end look like it needs a 1-2" dump? Might just bee the drive way angle.

Nope, that's the way they come straight out of the box.

i know what you mean but unfortunately it affects the handling, the stock heights actually handle the best, also there are rubbing issues with the front wheels

Is it from not enough bump travel or is it from weight distribution?

from my experience its both, there may be extreme track set ups that are different but just with a simple KW setup with no camber its not. when the first pictures of the 1M came out everyone said the front end was too high but the M engineers stated they felt they had it just right.

i think its a result of the 1m being the bastard child of the M3 parts bin. really its the fender thats wrong but how do you change that.

i like it how it is now, its how 1M's look, all business

Oh Yeah and your car looks shit hot Z1M!!

Yep, the stock height on the 1M is there for a reason I'm sure. It's up to the owner to decide whether they want to hardpark or want the car to handle as it should.

IMO if I had a 1M I'd keep it stock height. If you plan it lower it though, do it all the way.

No can do without replacing or cutting away in the inner guard liner.

As Zuzu's car is know, with the 1.2inch drop ( H&R race springs), the drivers side front rubs on the inner guard on full lock (OEM front tyre size 245/19/35).. Also the front lip scrapes on even the slightest slope, let alone dropping the front even more...

Sorry to thread Jack..Awesome car by the way..

A 30mm drop is quite substantial so I'm not surprised. Not saying there's anything wrong with it, just that if you're gonna do it properly, it's going to need some guard work before you can slam it
