Looking for some help from Model 3 Performance owners running Mountain Pass Performance Comfort Coilovers. I have a 2021 M3P and can squeeze 3-4 fingers in the wheel gap (depending on angle). I’m getting the MPP Comfort Coilovers installed next week and the shop has asked me what settings on the perch I want because obviously they can’t keep putting the car on the lift adjusting and asking me what I like. My goal is to avoid a slammed look and maybe get 1-1.5 fingers worth of wheel gap which is small but still adequate for daily driving. Also I will be running 245 tires and 5mm spacers front and 15mm rear. Could anyone here let me know what setting they went with and if possible a photo showing the stance? Thanks in advance !

Honestly, I would just follow the recommended settings. They won't make the car slammed.

FRONT:

FRONT SPRING PERCH OFFSET: START AT 74.4mm
FRONT RIDE HEIGHT: 377mm (Hub to Fender)
FRONT BATTERY HEIGHT: 128.5mm (Using OEM 18″ wheels and tires)

REAR:

REAR SPRING PERCH OFFSET: 24mm (this is the gap between the bottom of the spring perch and the top of the body – see photo)
REAR RIDE HEIGHT: 382mm (Hub to Fender)
REAR BATTERY HEIGHT: 128.5mm (Using OEM 18″ wheels and tires)

Agreed with @MasterC17 , the initial settings are great for most of our coilover owners!
