You drive the M4 to your shop sometimes? I'd love to stop by and take a look at it in person. You're in chandler if I recall? I stopped in there once to pick up a cable for your E60 M5 tune (which was awesome BTW!)

The rear looks too low. The 435 springs look a little better.

I dont know, I'm not about changing the suspension geometry of a brand new M car just for look.

Coilovers are a different story.

Everytime I see your username, I get confused a little and think, "Wait, I dont remember posting that"

Is there a M3 specific spring? On H&R's site, there's a listing for the M4, 335, and 435, but nothing for the M3.

The H&R site has not been updated.

For reference, F8X M3 & M4 use the same springs from factory.

Is this (50474) not the right party number? If it is they have updated their site.

M4 Coupe (50474) is listed on the H&R site, they had the 435 Sport spring listed early on, which has since been changed.

H&R does not have M3 Sedan yet listed.

That's good to know, Tom. I think this is a safe bet and hopefully most of the F80 guys see this. I was assuming they would be the same for M3/M4, but didn't want to speak without having any real knowledge on it.

Thanks Tom. Since the M4 specific springs drop the back more than the front, I would think it would look odd on the M3 since the factory tire/fender gap for the M3 is much larger in the front then rear.

So if the M3 spring is the same as the M4 springs, would you recommend the 335/435 springs? It seems like the M4 springs will only exacerbate the M3's fender gap in-balance.

There's a few M4 owners running the 435 Sports and completely happy, as well as the M3/M4 setups. Ride/feel is very similar with both.

Hopefully, we've provided enough info and pictures for individuals to base their own decisions upon.

From factory the F80 M3 is 1mm lower than the F82 M4. They did the adjustment of the M3s suspention to get the same balance like the M4.
So this is a good question - will they make a new set for the M3...?

And you tested the car, it is better handling than on stock springs? How does it feel in real life? Better than stock or not?

Tnx, Jack.

1cm or 1mm?
1mm is like almost nothing.
