coilover that is HIGHER than stock, kerscher frontbumper?

Ok.. question,
I really want to buy the Kerscher bodykit for my E92 very soon.

The only thing that I'm scared of.. is the height of the car after mounted the frontbumper.
A friend of mine have the same front bumper, and his E92 is way to low for the roads in Holland. Impossible to park in a car garage etc etc..

So I'm looking for a way to higher the car a LITTLE bit,
so I can drive normal with the frontbumper mounted.

Airride is not an option... To much 2 fast to furious look
So maybe there is an coilover that can higher the car as stock ?


Thanks for answering.

They are custom valved AST's from Turn in Concepts. What specs do you want? They were about $2400 I believe.

AST 4100(rebound adjustable only) starts at $1899 without springs or $2099 with spring rates of your choice. Camber plates will add $439 to the kit if you choose to get them.

AST 4200(rebound and compression adjustable) starts at $2949 with springs.

Yes, our Koni based single adjustable coilover kit will also allow stock or about 1" higher ride height along with up to 1" lower.
