You can adjust rear camber & rear toe and front toe. There is not a front camber adjustment at the moment. We recommend the factory BMW M4/M3 alignment specs until we get something to be able to adjust the front camber.

So if I understand correctly, you just stick with whatever camber increase you get from the drop in front and re-adjust toe to be within specs?

So to be clear, this suspension will keep the adjustable suspension settings in tact, allowing me toggle between the different suspension modes?

How exactly are the springs adjusted? I want to be able to make quick adjustments if necessary so I'd like to know the process of quickly changing ride height; if thats even possible.

edit: looks like post 130 has the answer to my second question. thanks.

If your car is equipped with the adaptive suspension, the KW HAS kit allows you to still use all the factory suspension settings just like factory because your still using the factory struts.

I feel like this is the obvious choice for me when the car arrives, since I went with Adaptive M option.


Bet my local BMW shop will try to charge me 9 hours.......

What about the offsets? (ET's)

BTW, I don't have an M3 yet. I'm planning on getting a 2016 once they are released. I'm going through my options right now.
