KW HAS vs MSS HAS

Has anyone pulled the trigger on either of these kits yet? The rear drop on both looks to be sufficient however the front is pretty disappointing from what I have seen from both, the H&R springs look to have the height nailed vs the HAS kits. Oxide Grey G80 is MSS, KW is White G82, Blue G80 is H&R springs

I am going with MSS because it goes lower and had good experience with it in the past. 20mm in the rear is sufficient for me, but some might want to go lower. the MSS can go lower in the first pic, I believe they dropped theirs 20mm in the rear but it can lower to 30mm max.

I have a very hard time believing that Frozen blue has H&R as the max drop on the rear is 10mm.

There is a 30mm rear drop kit from H&R which is what the blue car is

Doubt it since its a G80 and H&R only drops the rear .4 inches.

As for the MSS and KW both are not released to the public- yet

Per the H&R site:

Re read my thread and see the facts--- I dont doubt H&R exists I said that the blue car (which is a G80) does not have a .4 inch rear drop but H&R states that on their website. (which I clearly posted so I know there are springs)

Nice pic of the springs LOL- when are you installing?

It's a VTF Kit... Not just springs...

The 0.4 drop is for the spring kit, not for the adjustable VTF Kit.

All I know is that blue G80 has more than a .4 drop in the rear and the rear drop per H&R (the very company who makes the springs) states .4--- so there is either a nice photoshop or something is off.

I guess we need someone to drop their car pleaseeeeeeee.

and also enjoy that extra bounce in your car's step LOL

The blue car is not a photoshop…just has alternate size H&R rear springs.

I think the point he is trying to make is that there are no facts that the set you mentioned exists. I can literally take that same pic of the frozen G80 and say that those are special/secret Dinan springs.

And again you are not clear, the part number in itself is the G82 it just "suits the M3".... and what the fuck is a alternative spring LOL. Its probably the M4 spring hahah. (it has the G82 part to start)

You can believe all you want and so can I but until I see a car with the actual G80 H&R springs dropped (ones that are not alternative LOL) I am going to use their website as a guide at .4 inches rear.
