HI vthee

Were do you live I live in Vancouver. I think I can get some help from you , did you got the H&R Cup Kit? I really want to get it too. But the problem is I park my car in underground parking there is many speed bumps. Iam worry that after I got the cup kit I could not park in the underground parking any more. From the H&R website = I Know the rear lowering is 1.6 inch and the front lowering is 2.0 inch. Is that right? But I post before , a guy said that he had the H&R Cup Kit too but it only lower 1.0 inch is that right?

But I know lowering may very on cars. Some springs is higher or lower what they say in the web site. I goy a friend thats drive a Integra GSR and got his springs. They said (on the web site) will low 1.75 inch but after he got it on it low 2.5 inch. Can you help me? My car has 17inch wheel on do you? If you do can you post some picture or send me some picture? Can you take a picture of a close up of the wheel and the fander? How much you got your H&R Cup Kit? Cuz I know e46fanatics is selling them for $599 does group buy cheaper?

THANK YOU SO MUCH
This my E-Mail fly330i@yahoo.ca :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:

I think you would be fine. I had the cup kit on my sedan for 2k miles. I had no problem with speed bumps.

vthee 04-20-2002 11:17 AM

actually the cup kit doesn't lower your car THAT low... its a real clean drop... i think you should be fine over speed bumps... if you have sports suspension on you car the cup kit will lower the fron .75 inches and the back .50 inches... this is what the HR rep told me...

I drive a 328i sedan... honestly i wouldn't worry... i would only worry about pot holes but you have to drive a little more safe because your car IS lower...

FLY330i 04-20-2002 08:22 PM

HI vthee

Can you give me your E-Mail? Cuz I want to send you some pic crossing a speed bump. I will take a picture with my car crossing the hightest speed bump on the parking lot. See what do you think? :D
