That's my smb Z a few months back. It was lowered on hks coils and had 31mm spacers. Brembos are factory cuz its a grand touring. "stockish" lol.

At any rate the m3 is looking good with the height and stock wheels. Pretty much the same form as my Z before I put on body mods.

I'm not familiar with the e46 m3 BC Racing kit but the front camber plates likely have an extra set of holes. I drew some arrows on your picture showing what to do. Simply jack one corner up and loosen all allen bolts a bit. With them now loosened, remove both allen bolts on the right side of the plate and loosely screw them in the hole set to the left. Now slide the plate away from the center of the car to remove some of the negative camber. With the strut slid over it should now expose the other two bolt holes. Move the allen bolts on the left side to these now visible holes and secure each bolt.




As far as the noises, not too sure about that without seeing the car. I have TCKline coilovers on my e46 m3 and they are silent

Don Avon7 - thanks for the picture, that helped a lot!

UPDATE: Raised the car a good amount. Couldnt stand the rubbing and i'd rather be flush and lowered than slammed and tucked. Once i get wider and more aggressive wheels i'd be able to work some magic and slam the car. For now i'll stay conservative.

30mm front and 20mm rear spacers. Front camber has been adjusted to almost 0 i think lol. 225/35 and 275/30





even at this raised height i still rub occasionally. Fenders are cut but the rubbing seems to be coming from where the rear bumper connects to the fenders :/ Ride seems to be a lot smoother after i changed the dampening. It was close to full stiff before, now its 8clicks from soft and is much better. Still get clunking from the driver side rear, but i think i had that even with the S-techs. Now its just louder.

Slammed, flush, and RAKED! But nothing over the top....Yes fronts are lower than the rears, not the other way around like most lowered M's on here. Tires out back are also taller than the fronts. Looks sportier and meaner imo. No silly add ons, no crazy "look at me" themes, just simple and aggressive like bmw/I wanted it to be

No tuner look here. Reason i got rid of my Z and got a BMW
