Thanks Doug. I don't mind a harsh ride. Some say a stock E46 M3 runs harsh... but I prefer the more athletic feel. Would you say it drops it to that height of a rear drive touring with a sports package? That would be perfect. Was it a straight bolt on and ride or did you have to trim any bump stops or add any additional parts. I've been readind about "xi's can't handle lowering" it and the "bump stops need to be trim for the reduction in wheel travel". And what about your ability to align it correctly. Thanks for your input.
