I think the question is, why is the rear so low... Looks really weird IMO.

no offense intended, but an M car just doesn't look right at all when its this low. It's one thing if its a 330 or something, but an M3... defeats the purpose and goes against the reason this car was built

With the way my suspension was built it'll perform just as good as any M3 with a cupkit or lowering springs. It's been tested.

I would hope that for the price it would perform much better than a cupkit/lowering springs.

lol NO, says OP lives in Philly... I'm in NJ and know that the roads here in the northeast are AWFUL. My car is like a monster truck compared to this and I still cringe just driving around town because the roads are that bad.

Roads aren't good anywhere. It's funny, I still swerve and go around bad spots on the road in the X5.

Instead of salt, we just have way too many people in here in socal, so the roads are just as bad
