Need Help: Stock ZCP M3 Ride Height

Hello,

I just installed MP HAS on my ZCP M3, but forgot to take measurements of the stock ride height. I'd like to use these as reference points in adjusting the new ride height.

If you have a stock ZCP M3 with 666 wheels, I'd greatly appreciate if you would take a couple measurements from the bottom lip of the wheels to the fender.

Thank you in advance!

I did the same as you, went from stock ZCP with 666 wheels to MP HAS. Here were my before measurements for the stock setup taken at the midpoint of the wheel;

Front:
805mm from ground to fender
650mm from bottom of wheel to fender

Rear:
790mm from ground to fender
623mm from bottom of wheel to fender

Hope this helps

No problem

What did you end up setting the height at?

I had the dealership set mine to the BMW's recommended height (and verified it was correct) and couldn't be happier. Car looks wayyyy better now and I like the ride (although firmer) a lot more.

Post some pics once you're done!

I ended up with 631mm front and 615mm rear, more drop in the rear than the recommended height. I feel that this setting makes the car less forward rake.
