I don't see anything that really seems to bug you other than this guy getting a good price for coilovers appropriate for his usage. There's Still yet to be someone giving these a bad rating and someone actually Down rating these for the record. IMO if these work they work! Any one else just talking down w/o any legit explanation other than price being iffy or installation error, Stand aside... Let us discuss and you all chime in when there's actually sufficient evidence to support your Rants!

How much do these lower the car? Compared to stock sport suspension height. Can they ride at stock height or is it lower at its highest?
What size are those wheels on your car they look good tucked?

Car looks AWESOME!!!!

congratulations man there are over 1000 posts in that thread...where is the one about them failing???

idk why youre trying to fight this. not everyone wants to spend the extra money to get KWs..

im sick and tired of all these people that think they drive a ferrari..your car is a cheap e46 too!! e46s were never that expensive to begin with and they definitely arent expensive now...get off your high horse and quit bashing other people cars just bc they dont have $1500 coilovers. its their choice what they roll on.

OP-i actually like the wheels..im glad you didnt go with CSLs or LMs..

im thinking of getting some racelands pretty soon too

i got a chance to take pictures the other day. i lol'd at how bad mine are compared to some peoples.

here they are, i raised the car a little bit until i finish rolling my fenders in a few hours. i want to space and stretch asap but we'll see.

cruz. looks WAY better than your sig. The bumper works MUCH better now that the car has less rake, negative camber , and a good stance.
AWBLAIIIII

PS: stretch + poke over the break

Front looks good, but I'd take the back down a bit more. And play with those bumper mounts, there's a lot of waive in there. Flickr won't screw with your photos like photobucket. GL with the project!

It looks like a fitted OEM m3 bumper. Need some gaskets to even the gap between the headlight trims and bumper. The right right side of the bumper is pulled in too much. Looks ok overall maybe i'm just tripping.
