i can’t believe how happy I am with the choices I made to improve the ride on my Model 3.
The car now handles like a sports sedan, reminds me of the feel I had driving my Jag XK.
I added coil overs from Mountain Pass Performance and KW along with new toe and camber units and lowered the car 2 inches. Now I love the car better then when I got it. New Rims and caliper covers.

I’m planning to get the AWD coilovers when they are available — your car looks great! But I wonder about your ride height.

My understanding is the M3 has 5.5” of ground clearance. Minus 2” would give a ride height of 3.5”, which is very low. MPP recommended height for street cars is 110 - 115 mm, which is 4.3 - 4.5”. I had a gen 1 Chevy Volt that had a front spoiler with 3.5” clearance and I scraped it all the time.

Are those 18" wheels? Did you get the sport or comfort MPP coilovers?

What do you have your toe adjustment set to? Have you noticed this reducing the car's unintentional side to side tracking?
