Ground control coilovers!!!!!!!

Here is the thing. I know I know, i called ground control and they said to me that the regular e46 kit wont fit the Xi but guess what i did!!!!!!! I bought the kit. Hey it fits. Still need some tweaks here and there but im happy with the results. The car feels great. Its lowered all the way on front, rear is half way. I do not have rear install pics but its the same as regular e46. That is with stock shocks. The only modification this kit need is
1, longer enclosed sleeve, i already called ground control and they dont have it.
2. smaller strut mount
3. Short travel shock absorber shaft
Thats for the front only, the rear is perfect. With this you are able to lower you car also put it back to stock height in no time.

In the meantime i will let the spring to settle and then readjust.

I hope this help!!!!!!! Its a lot better than buying some h&r or eibach pro kit. Any questions im willing to help
