So I got my rear fenders rolled since I knew it was going to rub



A few pictures of my M3 lowered on Tein S springs and a quick wash

I read that the front spring rates are too soft for the drop. That's why I'm curious about the ride quality. It looks really good though.

My m3 is dropped on tein springs. I hate them with every pour in my body. They cause ridiculous under steer which truly should not happen/did not happen with stock BLOWN struts. Bumps are.....meh. Clean the dish of your wheels homie!!!

Get coilovers. Your car.....is the beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

The wheels look fine to me. I think everyone on here is just too used to seeing 18s.
