The new pics are in the 1st post here. They are the ones with the graffiti wall in the background. I removed the old shots with the rear sticking up since I got the rear sorted out.

I just added a cold air intake system to compliment the shark injector. It not much louder and has a nice deeper growl. It feels more responsive and faster.

Awesome build! I have the same setup with h/r sport springs and bilstein sport shocks but my car does not sit anywhere as low as your car in the back. My car has a serious rake issue. I wonder if using the rear m3 cabriolet strut mounts make my car sit higher in the rear.

Can anyone chime in on why my car might be sitting higher in the rear?

Thanks. I just sold her on Friday. I'll really miss her but moved to a part of the country where there is much less paved events and more off-roading and it really doesn't make sense to keep her. There is at least one thread on raising the rear with various items here. Do a quick search.

Offroading huh, we used to use Old land cruisers to off-road in south America, those days were fun! Well actually my issue is that I want the rear to be lower. I have the same suspension setup your car had but mine doesn't sit as low in the back. I wonder whats going on?

Rcv7:

Did you not have lower spring pads when you installed your springs? Which ones did you have if so? Sorry for being a pain.

Default Lowering

I never installed any pads, only the H&R sport springs and Bilstien sport shocks and struts. Most 3 series cars should look and feel the same with this setup. Not sure why yours doesn't look like mine. Are you sure yours are what you think they are. May want to check model #s on the parts to make sure. I must say, it handles like a frightened cat running from an angry dog!
