Because the struts are shorter and the coilover seat sits lower, you may find that the springs get very close to the wheel rims. The main advantage of the coilover setup is that you can adjust the ride height to get the corner weights spot on. Your standard wheels will fit, but with the standard offset somewhat limit the amount of adjustability.

You can fit camber adjustments but I would not until you have driven the car with just the suspension to start with.

As far as adjustments go. I run 6 at front and 2 at rear for road use. For track days I have been running 20 and 16, which is hard (you can jump up and down in the boot and the car doesn't move !!!)

You definately won't be dissapointed.

Roops.


I have the factory fitted M-Tech suspension which is already quite low - will I need even lower springs? E30 M3 15" wheels fitted - will they need to be changed?

Yes, I'm going for the coilover setup so I can get an adjustable camber mount. I'm encouraged to hear you say it's proved good for you. I have a 325i - can you forsee any problems?

how much do you adjust the bounce and rebound? what is a good setup?

many thanks in advance....
DC
