Has anyone lowered their model 3 RWD?

On the contrary, I exalt mine.

three problems
1. void the warranty
2. the car is too heavy. Just lower the spring will kill the shock quickly, unless you can find comprehensive design specifically for M3 with spring, shock, and camber kit.
3. increase risk to damage the battery compartment when go through speed bump or large road objects.

Yep. Mine is lowered 10 mm.

@CharleyBC, I see what you did there.

Coil over solutions from Mountain Pass Performance and Unplugged Performance. Unplugged performance also has 3 different height fixed springs. All optimized for the vehicle. Doesn't void the vehicle warranty unless it's the direct cause of specific failure. Magnussen Moss act.

Lowered my M3 RWD with Eibach springs...1.25" dropped then added 25mm front and 33mm rear spacers. Love the ride. No issues for me.

@Chris, did you get the comfort or performance version and how much did you lower it? Thanks.

I would like to raise it instead. Bummer no air suspension like MS. Although air suspension fail more?

@Bob the sport versions. Not sure how much lower but car has almost exactly 4” clearance now. Was originally 1/4” lower per Mountain Pass reccommended setting but I was scraping too often so raised it. Shop said the bottom of the car is pretty tough though and I shouldn’t worry too much either way. The rear tire air dams took the brunt of the scraping but it’s not visible.
