    My stock height on the 325 iS is the same as your 318 iS
    I think even the small drop makes a difference though...looks good.

      Pic from tonight, installed the rear H&R OE Sports. Comparing E30 M3 to OE Sport to 318is stock:

        With OE Sports installed, front:

        Rear:


        Rides just awesome on these now, body roll is noticeably reduced as are road imperfections. The car feels way smoother than it did before.

            Looks great! That ride height looks perfect. Sorry I didn't see this thread earlier or I would've chimed in with some info/measurements.

            Did you see my post with measurements for H&R OE sports on my 318is?

            Did you end up using the 14.5mm E46 rear spring pads? That'll give you another half inch of ride height in the rear.

              Thanks Mike! I did see that thread, stayed with the stock rear spring pads for now as I wanted to see how it looked first. Seems fine for now but may change my mind later, it looks a little bit droopy drawers in the back.

              I also ended up going with 50s instead of 55s. The look is a little bit odd...but I really wanted to kill as much roll as possible. I may swap them out, but I just drove my local twisty backroad and the handling is awesome, way more confidence inspiring than before!

                  With the Allen hole stripped I've still been able to torque the damper nut by locking a vice grip over a rag at the very top of the rod....high enough so if it does get chewed it won't reach the seal. You only need 17lbs
