mine arrived today in Niagara, driving down Friday to pick them up ... looks like I won't be installing them this year ... the white stuff is around the corner and I don't want to deal with the corrosion from the salted roads at least not this season. However I will be looking forward to everyones reviews...

installed mine and the rear, even on the lowest setting, isn't low enough for me. its barely even flush.
I'm going to call up F2 and see about the softer springs.

Hi guys,

I am so sorry for the mis communication lately. I have been out of the country for the past week due to family problems, I sincerely apologize as this is not my style of work.

I am back in the US now and able to handle your order.
For the last 3 guys waiting for your setups please rest assured that I am working on it and I will have these out ASAP. I will make sure that they leave the F2 facility by tomorrow.

Oh no, if thats the case I will be sorely disappointed. Did you play around with both the height settings (spring mount and the strut mount)?

Alfonso can you please comment? I bought these solely under the impression that they would go LOW, as per your comment on the first page "Yes, definitely doable. My car still have more to go, you can indo slam without air bags." I am now rather concerned

you need to realize you will not get an indo slam without airbags dude. first off it depends on what wheels/offset/tires. thats the big thing.. second the wheel can only go so far in the fender. im pretty slammed right now and i prefer not to rub but getting camber out back it rough on e46's because the inside wall is very close to the wheel. so if u dont rub on the outside you will rub on the inside. 3rd i really dope u dont daily your car because the ride will NOT be very pleasant if u wanna be that low.. you wont have any shock travel. even though the shocks are adjustable u need to adjust them lower if u wanna go low which = less travel. and youre gonna need to set them on soft if u dont want it to be mad bouncy. there has been a couple times where i have LITERALLY got air on the freeway from a big bump. its hard to explain man but youll understand when u slap them on. dont get me wrong these are great fukin coils, better then any other ones out there in my opinion, but what u want to do is gonnatake some patience and work.

everything in the rear is at it's lowest setting. F2 mentioned getting different springs for the rear to get it super low.

Appreciate your reply mate, but I've been using absolutely slammed cars as dailies for nearly a decade now, I know what it takes. I've got the wheels / offset / tyres to suit, and thought I had the coil overs. I sincerely hope I do, especially considering I bought these coilovers based SOLELY on Alfonsos statement that they would go ridiculously low. If this isn't the case, I'd prefer not to go to the effort of having them shipped to Aus and fitted, I'd rather just go and buy K Sports like you have that I KNOW will go low.
