H+R Touring Cup Kit vs OEM Sport Package
 
How much does the H+R Touring Cup Kit lower the front and rear compared to the OEM Sport Package suspension?

Also, is the H+R Touring Cup Kit much stiffer than the Sport Package?

Not sure if you are trying to fit this to your M3 but H&R does not make a cup kit for the E46 M3. They do it for the standard non-M3 E46s which lowers cars with the Sport Package .75" Front and .25" rear. If the car does not have sport, then it lowers the car 1.4" Front and .75" Rear.

These will run firmer than your standard suspension in either the Sport or Touring version.

We have all the specs up on our site for you as well: H&R Cup Kit for the E46

Wait, isn't that backwards?

Not to thread jack, but wanted to ask a question that doesnt deserve a complete thread. If you get a touring cupkit, do you need a spring compressor to install or does it come ready to go ?

You will need to compress the springs, so yes you will need a spring compressor.

Edison@JleviSW 12-31-2010 01:07 PM

Spring compressor is needed for the front, you can rent one from AutoZone or Pep Boys if you don't have access to one.

I installed a touring kit on my ZHP and the car is noticeablly lower and stiffer. In my opinion it is ideal for a daily driver if you have to deal with snow in the winter months. My car has splitters installed and I scrape slghtly on some driveways and parking lot entrances now. If I went with the sport kit I would have problems in the winter when I am on 18's.

any pictures of your car on the touring kit? i am looking into getting the h&r kit in a few months, but was undecided if i was going to go the sport or touring kit.
