The wife's 335 just after putting the wheels and KW V1's on.
Work Gnosis HS202 - 19x9 +29 f, 19x10.5 +31 r (iirc)
Continental DW 235/35/19 f and 275/30/19 r
I was going to run slightly more agressive (a few mm) setup on mine in the spring, but circumstances change, need more space, and I'm moving to an X1 this week. Coilovers and wheels should still fit though

E92 front fenders are plastic and can't be rolled.

Sorry hnekcivic, but Melanie's old car has you beat. I did a photoshoot with it a while back, so I'll have to dig up the pics. She was running 19x10 +23 all around on her E92 XI.

For those who are running on KW1's:

How do you guys like the ride? I want to lower the car too. I have stock sport suspensions on and I kind of hate it. Not sure if its because i also have run flat tires but every crack, hole, bump etc. you name it, I feel it like someone is hitting the car underneath. (Boston roads are the worse in the country..!)

I have 2008 E92 running on 18's. All stock.

Greatly appreciated if you guys can share your experiences.

There is no stock Sport Suspension, unfortunately for us.
Run flat tires are a no go.

Definitely switch out your suspension to coils. KW V# is great. I have the 3, but the one will do just fine to drop it.
Definitely fill it up with nice wheels and new tires.

Thanks mashimarho,

You have a very very very nice car. You also got my vote. I don't think I've seen such a pretty car like that in a while. Good job. By any chance do you have a list of the stuff you did on your car? I have 328xi. I would love to "try" to make my car look as close as it can get to yours.

Going back to topic,

How do you like the ride on the KW's? I hate that I feel everything while i drive.

I love my V1's. Not harsh on the roads at all. I regularly forget that I'm even on coilovers. It's the way the sport suspension should have come from the factory.

The ride is nice. I can adjust to make it stiff, but I have it fairly smooth. I like it half way. I don't like making it too tight, I kind of soften it out.

I've done quite a bit....
Too much to remember, but I can try and pull up some old post.. Let me find it.


Wheels + tire + TPMS
BBS Caps
ARKYM lip
BMW PE
KW V3
LED work
Coding
JB4 n5 Stage II
BMS DP
BMS intake
BMS clutch stop + CDV
Black roof + tint + vinyl
Black grille
Stoptech BBK
DD quad diffuser
Cyba quad tip
Cyba scoops
BMW Performance spoiler
ER CP

Here is most of it. Probably have a few missing.

To be fair, my KW V1s are cranked all the way down, and the ride is very rough/tight. I've been told that if you keep it higher at stock suspension height, it's more comfortable, but I've always been slammed on these things, and they're not comfortable at all.

You also have to consider that coilovers are less durable than the stock suspension. Coilovers are built for the track, while stock suspension is built for the road. If you mainly drive on bad city roads, expect your coilovers to wear prematurely. My friend who lived in an area with bad roads had his KW V3s go out on him within 15K miles.

Clarification: stock sport suspension height, not XI height.
