The "front" hangers don't really do much to affect the height, it will be the pairs of mounts on the back box themselves. Like Dave said, check those first, but they both seem to be at the same...

Going full stiff on the front from stock bars will feel very twitchy IMO. Issues with nuts coming lose also IME. I used to run my car like this but gone back to soft/soft and it feels more balanced...

Oh yes defo, on both points (especially the Mugellos :p), but I think there are few wheels that work properly on the M Coupe. If it was a more modern styled Z4M or any other modern BMW, then a lot of...

I can't see them, the link doesn't appear to work for me. These have cropped up before, but like you say just "fronts". Would be great if someone made a staggered 18" set with a 10" rear.

I thought I may have posted but maybe didn't send it, but yes the wheels could put people off. I think a period set of silverchrome S50 wheels would look better IMO. With less detail, so I would...

Oh and that ///M etching looks really tacky (IMO). I've seen another conversion that looks more like the BMW ellipsoids in E36 and E39 which I think works better.

I'd imagine it does as it was a much higher spec car and probably shares all the E39 bulkhead bits.

B6 and B8 are the same damper, but the B8 has a shorter length. However, the B8 will work fine with stock springs as it's not that much shorter than a stock damper. They give a good ride, much more...

When I first go out in the car, I have a habit of setting the blowers to feet giving them a blast so any dust that comes through just goes on the carpet rather in my face or on the dash! :lol:
