Putting lowering springs on an M3 is a terrible idea IMO. Not quite so bad doing it on a 325. Just realize that the stock Sachs shocks really are crap IMO. They HATE the extra stress of having to work harder when lowering springs are used. If you DO use springs never ever use Tein, go for some other brand that does not give a big of a drop and supports the front end better. Ideally, any lowering springs should be accompanied by Koni Yellow bodied shocks (for M3 at least. I dont know if its a different color for 325). The end result is not horrible. It can actually be OK, but ONLY if you buy a new set of premium performance shocks (NOT Sachs!)

But at that point, it makes much more sense to take advantage of a good sale like Lutz has and just get coil overs. You can corner balance with coil overs. Cant do that with springs. You can fine tune the drop for quicker or slower steering. Cant do that with springs.

Get the V1's if money is that tight.
You will never, ever be sorry you got a set of KW's. They will last a lifetime (with rebuilds) ad hold a great re sale value. Please resist the temptation to cheap it out with just springs. leave that for the Civic crowd. You can essentially ruin the handling of a BMW like i did with just a set of Teins. I had them OFF the car in 48 hours and a set of KW's expressed to me. I learned the hard way.

Coil overs is probably the best and most rewarding mod you can do to your car. The ride with KW's is better than stock IMO. At least on the M3. I hated the stock springs and shocks. its like they are disposable or something.

If anybody is on the fence, dont even think about it. get a set of KW's. They are such a great set up for the street and even the track. The progressive springs really do make a difference in ride comfort.

Couldn't of been put in better words, specially from someone who had lower spring and switched over to coilovers.

Lowering springs can cause excessive wheel hop and premature failure of your shocks/struts.. I wouldn't recommend them.

LOL, I could not get those Teins off my car fast enough. What a joke. I sold them immediately to a guy locally who is thought he would love them. He sold them too after while! I even tried to warn him. He wasnt having any of my advice (at the time!)

I want to help educate some of the guys who dont know, and support any outfit that offers a discount on probably the most desirable street(and track) coil overs made for BMWs. Good luck to the seller and all buyers. You cant go wrong with this buy unless you have a pretty serious track machine in which case I would recommend a linear spring set up like Motons, TCKline, AST, or KW Clubsport. Dont think about that too much. If you are in that group then you already have heavily researched all the options. For the VAST majority of us, look NO further than right here at Lutz and KW, V1, V2 or V3.(I am not affiliated in any way to Lutz. I dont even know a single employee there or much about them except what is posted here on the forum.)

KW Progressive, V1, V2 and V3 will take car of 95% or more of any guys wanting to have a MUCH better handling. looking and comfortable car. No matter what set of coilovers your car evolves to using, I think everyone should have at least one set of KW's. They sure are purty too, all shiny in SS!
They will give your car the lowest drop of any coil over. They are fully adjustable for ride height too, which is one of the many selling points of coilovers vs lowering springs.

The photos of my car in my signature are with KW V2's adjusted for 19 inch 3 piece forged wheels(see one with the gold center in the first photo). The Dforce 18 inch lightweight wheels(mounted in the pix) with BFG R1's fit perfectly for track sessions with no adjustments to the KW's needed.

There are a lot of members who come to this board/forum and only check the FI section and several of them have contacted us in regards to helping them out with KW Coilover pricing. So why not extend the help to all of you guys.
