Yeah... Even at -4.5, the rub was still horrible. I'm raising it back up to pre-coilover height and putting the camber back at 2.5. I'm getting a hold of a fender roller again soon.

So I decided just to raise it up a little bit and stiffen the suspension up. Took a few quick pics in the drizzle tonight and only 2 came out decent. haha. I need a tripod. You can definitely tell the amount of camber I'm running in the second pic. The light was hitting the entire car evenly, and that's how the light was reflecting off the wheels. hahaha.

So it's been a long while since I've updated this thread. haha. Things have changed a bit. I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to be this low with KW V2s. haha. Helper springs have been removed, and I removed the spring platform from the coil in the rear. haha. It's just the spring sitting there.

This winter, I'm switching to Mtech II + Arqray, so hopefully that'll get me a little lower in the front. I'm tired of the bumper sitting higher than the sideskirts. haha. I'm also preparing to switch wheels, but I've got a few choices. I'm either going to source some style 5s and rebarrel/lip them to 17x9.5" up front and 10" in the rear. I know that'll be rather expensive, which brings me to my other option, some 19" X5 wheels. I don't want to gain any height off the 19"s, though, considering that I'm trying to get lower as it is.

Looks good , Was the Dynavin an easy Install ? I see from youre pics she sits nice and flush , I gather you relocated youre Climate control unit In that empty storage space ?

The Dynavin install was really easy. And yeah, I got a climate control relocation bracket from Tischer, considering it was like 1/4 the price that all the vendors ask for. haha.

Well, the M3 bumper has a crack in it from where I hit an armadillo on the highway going 80. rofl. It's ziptied up right now because I didn't have money for a new bumper. And I figured since I need a new one, I might as well try a new look. I don't really care for most of the lips available for M3 bumpers, and I think it'd be strange to put a lip on a broken bumper.

Yeah, but the other damage it did isn't. It broke out pieces of the plastic that I'd have to remold, and it completely obliterated the foglight area. The bracket and everything got ripped off.

Picture from as soon as it happened:

Nice car man! SGFTW

Not a big fan of how the houndstooth looks on the passenger side dash trim though.... looks warped and and not lined up correctly... maybe just the pic though.
