I've just lowered my M3 with H&R springs and Bilsteins and it didn't seem to lower the car that much. Can some of you M3 owners do me a favor? Measure the gap between your front wheelwell and the top of the tire. Also between the front wheelwell to the center of the rim. H&R claims a 1.5" drop in the front. I know that the Bilsteins actually RAISE the car a little but who knows. Anyways, I'll post the info of before and after if anyone is interested. Thanks in advance.

Mine dropped a 1/2 inch after 400 miles.<p>Rex Tener<br>rex@marimba.com

I was thinking that I should've gone DTM but I'll wait and see what happens. Thanks.
