This would be for a E46 M3 coupe.


Eibach
F= 0.6"
R= 0.9"

H&R
F= 1.2"
R= 0.5"

Tein
F=0.7"
R=0.6"


What do you guys use....?

Which one makes the car stand better...?


** And can you do the aligment correctly after the car is lowered.? ... I know every car is diff. and on my Supra it was still ok. Does this mess up the tire wear at all.?

Thanks

On an M3 or any BMW for that matter, it will rip up tires. BMW has some of the best camber int heir cars of any car produced, I persoanlly thinking screwing with it is a bad idea. Unless you are going to track it. If you decide to do it make sure you get camber plates to make the camber the same as BMW built it, otherwise you will be buying tires twice as fast!

Get a camber kit if you really want to. The tires dont wear that fast. I have H&R on my BMW and I love them. Although according to those numbers I dont know what to say. That is a very agressive drop for a e46 M3. Are you also going to puchase aftermarket struts/shocks? Because your car is already so ideal, I would recomend a coilover kit instead. BUT if your wallet has it's heart set on just springs, you should get some KONI adjustable strust/shocks on your car. Running these springs on your stock struts is dangerous and can produce bounce that is far less than ideal.
