Ok - so they're still in the box but should be fitted real soon!

Sweet, I put a set of the Varient 2's on my M3. The ride is MUCH better now, although if you still have the run flats it might be really harsh.

Get em on and throw up some pics!

Nice work, i cant wait to see your car finished
They must be V2s right? It says V3 in your sig, but i thought all V3s had the separate gas reservoir off the side of the shock body?

Either way, fantastic piece of kit!

Cheers.

Thanks - they are V3s - adjustable height, compression and rebound.

Definately lower - don't like the four wheel drive look.

I'll start with the recommended settings and decide from there - don't want the ride of a billy cart either

I want to eliminate the understeer - higher compression settings and a little negative camber in the back should help this I think. I'll get it aligned in the BMW stealership - they owe me anyway - and their head mechanic also works for a race car team so has a lot of knowledge about how to optimise the suspension setup.
