So the E46 community is calling their lowered suspension cars "slammed" now? "Slammed" has a bit of a r!cer connotation to it. The group of people who drive and own E46s has really changed from when I joined this forum a few years back.

There's a difference between lowered and slammed.

Is there anything else you could do to get the back lower? What time of coilovers would get slam?

not really, unless i cut a coil or modify the suspension/body. ive seen other raceland setups on e46s and they seem to go lower
so im not sure whats up with mine, they were installed correctly as my seven yr old could have easily installed them so i dunno.
lets put it this way, im as low as i can go without seriously modifying my car and i dont qualify in this thread as slammed. maybe its my particular setup

I don't think you can get shorter springs for racelands. I heard somewhere that a guy tried putting on swift springs with his racelands and it wouldn't go as low as racelands with stock springs.

Well if he got really stiff springs that weren't much shorter then the stock race land springs then it wouldn't go much lower. So it depends on what length and stiffness you get. Dano17 has Shorter stiffer springs on his and they go lower

Slammed cars tuck tire and/or rim. Lowered cars come no where near that.
