My Ride: 2006 M3
year and body style: 2001 330i sport
setup being rated: SCCA DS Autocross prep - Koni double adjustable shocks from TC Kline, (koni doesn't make double adjustable themselves) a 28(?)mm H&R front bar, and ground control adjustable endlinks
adjustments: adjustable front sway & endlinks, and both compression & rebound on all four shocks - bar is set to soft setting, shocks are set to 7 front, 5 rear compression, and full rebound for autocross, and no rebound for street. Full soft for both in the winter. (MN)
additional aftermarket components: HPS front / HP+ rear pads, extra set of sport wheels w/ Hoosier A6's in 245/40/17
additional info:
preferred ride style: D Stock Autocross, and daily driven
would you recommend this setup? Yes.
price paid, including installation (if applicable): $1900 for shocks, $120 for endlinks, $300? for swaybar, DIY install
ride comfort: if stock is 7, this setup is probably 6 for "comfort", in that my girlfriend doesn't like it as much.
handling: if stock is 7, this setup on the street is an 8, and a 9 for autocross use/settings.

The autocross settings are very unstreetable, but totally transform the car for that use. It's certainly not as good as a coilover setup, but it's stock-class legal, and quite a bit better for autocross. Reduces body roll significantly, and helps facilitate weight transfer to the rear, resulting in less inside rear tire spin and more grip.
