I haven't been to underground parking lots yet, i'm worried :S. I just picked up my m3 side skirts from streetxtreme and will post pics of the drop after I install them tomorrow. Pics of my ride was in the bbq pic thread but you couldn't really see the whole car.

Could one of the guys with coupes who hasn't installed them yet measure the distance from the center cap to the fender, also from the front lip to the ground. I want to see the before and after difference.

Tks

Your drop is really nice in the pictures. Besides the parking garages, does it scrape the bottom? That's the type of drop I'd want.

thanks. nope other than that not really scraping anywhere else, but i have been REALLY careful when approaching driveways and parking lot enterances. still thinking about raising it a tiny bit. one of the parking lots over the weekend had a very steep driveway to go up to the 2nd parking level, and there was a flat level section in between (imagine the roads of san francisco and you'll know what im talking about) and when coming up to the level section .. the middle of my car scraped a tiny bit. took off paint from the bottom of the sideskirts in one spot but you cant see it since its under

Love the car now that the coilovers are installed. By far the best mod since it achieves both aesthetics and performance.

Sorry for the crappy iphone pics.

thanks, just got the tint done today (coilovers and pics taken yesterday)
+1 for RMP, great service, and very professional.
+1 for Auto Links, great guys and did a meticulous job on the tint, and the atmosphere in their shop is above par.

more pics later...

I noticed that my rear driver side is sagging, I had IVO raise them a bit last week. I'm not sure if the spring isn't sitting properly or if it just needs an alignment. I can get 2 fingers on passenger rear side and only one on driver rear side.

Has anyone experienced this?

I have on occasion at the rear, but it appears to depend on how I'm parked. I've attributed it to various side slopes.

Just wondering if anyone went from OEM sport suspension to full coilovers can comment on the ride quality?

Just looking to get a lowered look and not really for performance but I'm worried about the comfort.

i did ... but i got the v2 and set it up to be more stiff. if youre looking for a drop but dont want to affect ride quality too much, try something like the kw street comfort kit.
