Bringing it more in line with the stock look I was able to level out the car and now run a lip. I had no such issues on the M4s I've owned which I also installed KW V3s on. The M4s just look like 4x4s on all four corners stock hah.
The front wheel arch has a larger opening than in the rear, so if one wants even wheel gaps, they end up with quite a lot of positive rake. Best to corner balance it, really, to fully maximise the possibilities of adjustable coilovers.

It says right in the technical approval documents that the TÜV ride height (distance from center of wheel to wheel arch edge) is 20mm lower than on the M4. 310 vs 330 mm. You can certainly order a different spring for the rear - be it KW, Swift, etc. They've developed their kits on the M4 only, can see it on the promo pics on their website.

I didn't go that far down the rabbit hole but good information nonetheless.

That is the longer spring? Looks like yours and mine (assume all V3s) came with 120/200 spring in the rear.

Got the KW 15mm spacers installed and spun the rears up 3 turns from the bottom. Sits much better now IMHO. I also installed 75mm studs, motor sports lug nuts and 3mm spacers in the front.
