REVIEW: Street Edge Coilovers E46 M3

Seeing how these are so cheap and I just want coilovers on my car for the lowz I'm really thinking about giving these a try, ideally I was thinking broadway static but I don't see the point in spending 1500+ on coilovers when I still have stock wheels.
To OP what's the lowest you could set these you think?

This is as low ad my fronts go and rears have about a half inch or more. 18x8 18x9r. Love the ride. Funny how people don't give a newer company a chance. I believe all companys start somewhere!

probably at 20k now on the kit. Still love them just as much. No squeals, not blown anything, no clunks.

Im saving up for a TCKline kit because I DO plan on tracking this beast soon, but dont want any surprises if I happen to push this kit too far.
When I got it, Kris said it was a DD kit, not so much was said ab track usage.

here's how I sported the kit for a while on varstoens - 13f and 13.5 rear.




then here's the car on apex's and a little higher 13.5f 13.75rear.
Nice set up, I wanna know any clearance problems with oem 19s or your varrstoens ? Did u have to use any spacers?? Thnx_nr_

The front would rub a little on full-lock turns, but the rear had no rub, even when the car was loaded with cargo. No spacers were used here.

You took a pos suspension and put it on your car. Can't afford better coilovers? Are you such an epic fail just sell the dam things new and get money towards a better proven setup. Yes you are balling with your csl diffuser and other stuff but seriously, the ride is something that impacts everything you do with a car . Stop recommending that pos setup. Take it off your car maybe a brz owner will buy it

Lol I just can't help but reply haha, this is the type of people who buys expensive stuff, brags about it and hate on people who have cheaper stuff bwahahaha. Seriously who is smarter here? The guy who bought a cheaper coilover so he can have exactly what he needs with it or the guy who buys it for it's name...eerrrr...got more than what he really needs for thousands more? Haha
I bet this guy goes around car meets and asks every single person he sees what they have on their car and brags about what he has without even being asked! lMFAO, just a poor excuse of a car owner and a driver. I bet he is just jealous you got what you need with it for thousands less...but you are not cheap bro! You are practical! Kudos for the great review.....now I can sell my KW's and buy a street edge coilover and use the rest of the money I'll get from selling to feed my family....oh and also buy 3 more sets of street edge coilovers for back up haha. Thanks for the great review and don't mind these haters here.
