Coilovers at max height?

Hey everyone, I'm very interested in picking up a set of KW V1's or 3's for my '07 E90. I tend to get a solid amount of snow here in NY and i'm not looking to slam the ride I just want the handling benefits more than anything. So my question is how high you can crank these things up? Pic's would be useful of course but any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

The KW coilovers will give you the ability to adjust the height of your 3 Series XI from 0.6-1.8 inches in the front and 0.6-1.6 inches in the rear. I'll shoot you over a PM with more details!

XI's sit .6" higher than non-sport package. And IIRC, the sport package drops another 1.2"., total.

So the .6" drop would put you at stock, non-xi, height.

Don't hold me to this. I can't really put my finger on the values at the moment.

My experience with KW V1 is very positive. I adjusted them to the stock height (My car with sport pkg) with no problem!
