Believe it or not we still have snow here in Calgary!

Will probably be another month or 2 before I get some tires put on and have these on the car.

Congrats! Very happy with my set of VFF-103s too. I've been impressed with the set of MPSS on them. Just looked on TireRack and looks like they make the 4S in 21" now too!

Looking good! I was actually contemplating between the carbon graphite vs the bronze. I thought the bronze would compliment the Sakhir Orange, but changed my mind the last minute cause I wanted more contrast.

Looks great; stance spot on.

Original wheels were actually carbon graphite and I got bored of them so I had them refinished in BMW's frozen bronze metallic. Been happy with it so far.

Running on KW HAS.

You are right. Front is at its lowest setting for the KW HAS. Rear is tucked slightly. I kind of like how it sits but may raise it up a hair so it's even with the front and my OCD can sleep at night

Having the car that low, do you experience any squeaking, or bouncing?

That’s the problem with KW HAS , the front doesn’t sit as low as the rear at the lowest setting , need to upgrade to the V3 coilovers

No squeaks, rubs, or bouncing. Suspension is definitely stiffer even on stock shocks but no trouble so far.

For my purposes the KW V3 was complete overkill and I wanted to maintain stock use of EDC. If your main purpose is to go lower or track your car then the V3 is the way to do it. I just wanted a cleaner look and the HAS did that for me. I have other methods to track my cars
