Xdrive with oem 220's and KW V1

Snapped a few pics with my phone after getting my V1's put in on my xdrive. The rear can go down a lot more but with the oem M3 wheels and the aggressive offsets, it's pretty much as low it can go without rubbing

I might be interested. With tires? If so, what's the brand and sizes?

whats wrong with those oem m3 wheels? When you say too aggressive, do they rub or theyre too harsh?

looks good btw

how does it ride at that height? I'm looking at the some v1 but I have reservations about ride comfort with coilovers.

It rides like normal sport suspension on the I. Not too harsh at all.

The rear is a bit aggressive for me on the m3 wheels. I beleive they are like 23 or 25 offset. I had no problem when I was at stock height but on coilovers they rub in big dips

Are you still planning to sell your wheels?

I have a coupe as well have the m3 wheels installed.. I ended up putting doing a "square setup" by using front wheels all the way around.. The offsets are now perfect!

thumbs up! I love the kwv1 ride quality! quite an upgrade from the floaty XI stock suspension. a little rougher, but it feels so much more grounded and precise.

Looks good! I love the stance in the front. I'm planning on lowering mine some more as soon as I get my spacers put back on.

Yah kw v1 are awesome I actually think the ride comfort is better than stock suspension there are no more bottoming out bangs the coils absorb the bump like it is supposed to. And handling is great especially at higher speeds

The front fit fine, the offset is too aggressive for the rear.. Solution is to run 4 front oem rims on all 4
