Padfan...did you see EAS's thread...
Post #166 is a pic my car if you want to see the height (didn't have the spacers installed in those pics as they were out of stock, but they were installed at a later date)

There's a ton of other pics of M4/M3s with KW HAS, H&R springs and different spacer combinations in the thead.

As for the ride of the KW HAS (I have the standard, non-adaptive suspension w/ stock 19s), its really smoother than I anticipated. That's not to say it isn't a bit harsh, but the stock non-adaptive suspension was a bit harsh as well. Comparing the KW vs the stock, non adaptive suspension...I honestly can't tell much of a difference (that is a testament to how well the KW HAS is matched to the stock dampers).

Also, this isn't my daily, but if it was, I would think the ride would be too tiresome to drive everyday...but I'm getting old. If I was in my 20s (I'm 42), I probably would've lowered it more and driven it that way 24/7.

I just asked EAS to lower the front to match the rear so I didn't lower it much. The rear was not lowered beyond the highest KW setting.

I highly recommend the KW HAS if all you want to do is even out the reverse rake. I don't track this car at all, but if I did, I would be looking at KW V2/V3s or TC Kline C/Os.

Also, the Macht Schnells spacers seem to be a quality product...have had zero issues with them.
I agree with the above regarding my HAS kit on my passive suspension car. im probably even a little more happy with the ride quality than above, as I do drive it most days (im 34 btw), and find the ride fine. the only thing we found with the kit is that kw states .6 as minimum front drop, and we really couldn't get any less than a little over .8 id guess...I assume this can vary from car to car.
