    Default Stance isn't quite working yet:

    Stance isnít working just yet. Just recently tossed the H&R Coilovers on our 2009 BMW M3, pretty happy with how the rear turned out but front needs a great deal of work. Here are some images of the before, install, and a post install shot.

    Install is pretty easy on these, very quick. Front is the harder of the two but the rears are a piece of cake! We had two guys on this install and it was done in just under two hours.

    Enjoy it!

    Even before your future touch ups it looks amazing. How did the handling change?

    We're all pretty happy with how the handling is. Very tight now, handles extremely well around turns. Definitely an improvement but even stock these were pretty impressive.

    Are you sure it's actually improved?

    I'd be scared to just throw some coilovers on a car of this magnitude.

    Without corner weighting, considering roll center, and doing a lot of research I'd be nervous. Sure it can FEEL tighter but that's not what it's all about. I dunno, I'd just be paranoid and I'd want to be VERY sure I was actually improving it.

    Not trying to trash what you're doing, just kinda curious.

    What does that even mean?




    He is asking a valid question. Everyone that is slammed seems to believe their car 'handles' and rides 'awesome'. When the reality is much different.

    Wait until about 0:42. I guess body roll was the shiz back then. Sorry FMU, did not mean to derail.

    I'm pretty sure BMW M3 wheels count as "real wheels".

    I don't think they're that bad... just not aggressive enough for the car.

    The new M3 wheels are infinitely better than E46 M3 OEM Wheels.
