If you are not going to lower the car keep it! But if you are going to lower it eventually, get this one? It's 2.7 inch.

I just went and checked and indeed the front is like 3.9 inch. I am lowered but not 'slammed'. I have the suspension set at the max height.

I think he did check, but nowhere does it say they have it in stock. I am confident they should have it at St-Charles Kirkland, even if they show ?

lower the car a little but dont slam it ghetto style... it doesnt make you any faster. if you get a decent set of coils, they are height adjustable anyway... just do some trial and error and you'll find a nice height that can accommodate the jack no problem. thats what i did with my car. its lowered slightly but still accommodates the Torin Black Jack.

i say keep the jack. no point being low just for show.

new guy

Hello boys and girls !

I've been lurking on this forum for far to long, so I guess its time that I at least present myself. I just recently got my first bimmer, a 2009 335i with 70k clicks, and so far I love the hell out of it !!
Of course being winter and all, the car looks like a mess, but I cannot wait for summer to start to put the car in shape.
I also have had the unfortunate luck to hit some things on the 440 last week which totally went through my rear tire and created a bit of a mess . Luckily my fender wasn't damaged even though the whole tire turned upside down on its rim hehe. Got that fixed and now I'm rolling on a summer tire since low profile winter tires are somewhat hard to find in Montreal, I did order one however.

Here's the baby, and let me know what you guys think.
