I had to raise mine to stock because the former
owner of my '96 M3 dropped it. It was a harse
ride plus you had to be extra careful about parking it. Even with it stock, I'm still careful
and one time I came within a few mm of scraping
the front. It would definitly show because the
valances are color matched.

I've got the blistein shocks and springs if anyone
wants to buy from me.

: Jonathan,

: why would you want to drop an M3 to begin with? Is it only a looks thing, or are you actually driving hard enough to want to lower the CG? Will you install camber plates to adjust the front end alignment too?

: This isn't a flame, but I am curious why everybody is so keen to drop a car that scrapes over speed bumps in stock form. If I dropped mine more than 0.5" I would scrape going into my driveway.

: Just wondering,
: -jeff

: : Hey guys

: : I was wondering if anyone knows whose car this is?> If not, do you know what kind of drop it has? It is absolutely perfect and I would like to find out what suspension setup it has. Thanks
