so you don't stretch the brakeline and set it aside on a box or something to support it. This way the lower arm will drop all the way. You will need to turn the wheel (rotor) to the right or left depending what side you are doing and the lower strut mount come out easily. I've done my own M3 and 3 other friends M3's (installing H&R springs) and have not had problems doing so.

once you get the lower end out of the spindle, then loosen the upper mount nuts. Bring the lower end out first and then place your hand over the top of the strut to protect it from scratching the fender lip.
