I have a set sitting in my garage. Just need the M3! How long did the install take? The drop looks spot on!

No secrets. You can still use your adaptive suspension just like stock. That's the best thing about this setup. PM me for pricing and availability

Install pics looks like you have it at the lowest setting. Can you confirm this?

No...they can go down about another 1/2"....we can't go all the way down because of the width and offset of the front wheels.

The stock perch just slides up and off of the strut...the new one slides on in the same position...easily reversible....the helper spring is there to keep tension on the main spring so if you decide to go as low as possible there is still preload on the main spring and it doesn't clank around

I do not see the set up for F30/F32 on KW's site. I will see if I can find out if they are planning on making a kit for them.

The stance looks good. Overall, you guys nailed the lowering aspect of this car-not too low.

any spring kit or kit that doesn't replace the shocks will not affect the adaptive suspension, not just this kit

Can you find out if they're going to make it for the F10 550? This would be a lot better than my lowering springs! Great looking setup!

Looks amazing, but more harsh than H&R springs? Yikes.

It all really depends on the ride height you set the KW's at. I would say that the KW ride better than the H&R super sports. They are more comparable to the sport spring H&R makes.

Good point. Have you guys done springs on any F80s yet? I'm worried about how a non adjustable spring would look in the rear. The F80 rear is already so low!

Considering switching from my H&R sport, to this set up. Do you think it's worth it? I am seeking a better ride quality-do you know how the spring rates differ on these compared to the H&R Sports?

The F80/F82 are the same set up. We have not installed a set on the F80 yet. The rears are adjustable with the KW's.

I've had it on my F80 for about a week now. I'm running 15mm front and rear and have it set as low as it will go. The ride is just a tad rougher than stock. I used to drive around most of the time in Sport mode, now I choose Comfort.

I'm going to move the rear up about a quarter of an inch. If you want to go low in the front, these probably aren't for you. I'll have some photos up in my Journal soon.

Cool!

I think I'd benefit by these, I'd prob keep the springs on the highest they can go. So .6 front .2 rear. Just to get a little bit of the rake look and reduce the fender gap.
