Thanks! So now I've driven the car a few hundred kms, some spirited driving. The car handles well still, flatter on corners (less body roll) and is more eager to turn in - I assume cos of the increased neg camber. I have the KW v2 set to 16/19 max stiffness front and 11/19 max stiffness rear. The car rides firmer so it's slightly less comfortable on my way to work. Does well on good roads, but on bad roads it's bumpier. I think I actually hit the bumpstops on my front coilovers when I accidently ran over a pothole

My friend took some better pics of the car. Found a nice spot but the weather was really sunny so it was hard to take good pics. Will post more when I get them all.

Apart from that, been looking at exhausts. Really want a dixis but they are so rare (been searching the US forums). Else might just get a SS race.

mate car is looking so so good!
next E46M i get its gotta have LM's!
whats your reason for putting maximum stiffness on the KW's? i found that to make the rear end too twitchy. do you need it becuase of the wild offset you are running??

Well, I didn't want to get ahead of myself before it was official but it was hard not to Anyway, just last night I transferred the funds...so I guess that's official enough? Here it is:



For those who don't know, it's a dixis titanium exhaust - [Sen] guessed right. A beautiful piece and super rare. Since owning a j4p car previously, I've had a soft spot for j4p parts. Ever since buying the M3 I've wanted to add some JDM flavour to it. Very excited!

Thanks Adin! After doing some research, I set the KWs to the recommended setting that a few owners had theirs set to. I haven't played around with it yet, I need to sort out some time and adjust the shocks to see how it alters the ride. The wheels don't give me any problems so I probably could soften it up a bit.
