Angry H & R cup springs too low

Let my wife use the bimmer till i get back from my deployment.

Needless to say she parked my car on the street since my car is so low using H & R cup kit with race springs and the speed bumps in El Paso are mini Mt. everests. She went out the next morning to go to work and some one stole my CF roundels, wiper blades, CF lip, front mouldings,( damaging my bumper in the process ) and keyed my car!! !!

If i didnt marry the woman i swear i would kill her. Told her to park my car infront of my apartment and send me the keys here in Iraq. . . . . she gets stuck with using my POS Honda Del Sol till she buys her own damn car.

Any one know of a way to gain some hieght with out changing springs? double up on spring pads or something?

i wish i had a personal trunk monkey/ silverback gorilla.

Im hoping spring pads and possibly some sort of plate to mount on top of the strut before it mounts into the car will do the trick and get me enough clearence to be able to get over the speed bumps with minimal scraping. I had to splice my o2 sensor wires the first week i moved into my apartment complex just cause my car was like a sea saw on the speed bumps.

im tempted to go rent one of those ground pounders they use in construction.

This sounds like the most logical choice

1991 Ford Taurs SHO 5 Speed White on Tan
1996 Chevy Lumina LTZ Rep 3.4L
1992 318i Coupe parts car
1992 325i Ls1 swap with a T56 6 speed 12.2 quarter mile
1976 Mercedes Benz 300D with a Ford 5.0L Fuel Injected soon to be Modded

you borrow my car?!?

Whats the most logical, the spring pads or the ground pounder? i see both as a suitable fix to my situation. . . . after i get my car back to normal that is.

is the OEM M3 front bumper polyurethane or abs or something like that?
