I am planning to get coilovers for my car (GC Koni's or AD's most likely) I plan to do 20-30 track days a year. I already did 29 days in the car (Stock + StopTech BBK). Now I run much faster and on stickier tires. I know a plain E46 will definitely need that done but does that apply to M3's.

Are there negative consequences to welding in the kit? I own the car outright and don't have plans to sell any time soon.

Running on stock suspension I am not worried about messing up the rear end. Even if I do the warranty will cover it. But with coilovers I would have a hard time convincing the dealer or BMW that my mods did not cause the problem.

body shop skills to install. You'll have to remove the subframe to install it too. Good time to do this is when the diff is out for some reason.

I think it is a good idea since we've seen some issues on some cars.

I am willing to go through with it if it does give me a clear benefit. In this case I am want to be fully confident that my car will stand up to significant track use and not suddenly fall apart while I am full throttle in the middle of a fast sweeper. Proven safety is something I will not hesitate to pay for.

anything that the dealer will and might say if something should go amiss...

if you've already changed coilovers....then you've already voided some of the warranties that would be involved.....so its not gonna effect anything new.....you got me? just think about the possible warranties that are voided when going to coilovers....the installation of that piece really doesn't void anything other than those voided already...


just my opinion of course.

I am avoiding anything engine related like the plague. If it blows they can't point at coilovers and blame them.

I am thinking of having TMS install it for me in their shop. It's a 4 hour drive away and I am guessing they know more about doing such a job than anyone here Montreal.
