In my opinion, a 1er with CCW's needs an aggressive fitment in order to pop.

I agree with both you guys about the suspension issue. But right now, I can't justify spending 900 on coilovers when I can get springs for 200 ish. I had coilovers on my last 2 cars and never adjusted them once other than the initial adjustment. I felt like I wasted my money twice.

I feel you right there bud.
To all people who talkin about coil over. This is what i had on my previous M3. So i know how is the coil over compared to lower springs. But for the DD and look only springs will do the job save the dough for later. Unless you want some real bling then go with my old M3 set up

the spring options will not lower you enough in the rear. If you don't mind wasting $200 then its perfect.

i measured it carefully, and i figure one inch is the max i can lower to make sure i do not rub without any fender rolling/pulling.

im not going for the stanced out stretch flush look. i have done that and now i want a more realistic setup. call me crazy but i still want a bit of wheel gap.

nice m3!

Yeah man, don't get me wrong, CCW's are CCW's. That was just my 2 cents

Anyways, nice car.

Fuck all that noise, OP you got it RIGHT. Stretched tires look so dumb, and with a drop this car will be perfect.
