I finally found what I was looking for, for years!

Roberuta Cup Kit

You put this cup on top of your coilovers and you can adjust the ride height from inside the car! Its not the same as an air suspension as your car will still perform like a sports car, but you still have the option to raise the car to avoid steep driveways and high curbs. Although its like 3grand, I still think its worth it and I will be investing in it :)

Anyone else??

that's something I've wanted for a long time, but $2900 for just the front alone definitely ain't chump change considering it is mostly just convenience related. For the ~$4500 it costs for the full set-up, I'd expect it to include full coilovers. Maybe I'm just cheap, lol

Well for me, the 3 or 4 grand it costs is worth it to me. Ive seen my bumper get ripped to bits by tow truck workers who dont car about my ride. I got a replacement bumper, got it painted, all just to see it get effed up again :(

I suppose you are right, but I'm still not dropping that kinda cash until all else is done. Besides, I don't like my car slammed, so it's not as much of an issue with me as with most. I want my car sitting at the best possible height for all around performance. I figure when I get my coil overs installed that it'll be dropped about 1". I don't like ground effects either, so only a functional spltter up front & diffuser in the rear will be used. I'm thinking that I won't have to be as careful as those who have a 2" drop w/a 2" skirt kit. My bimmer's Mspt suspension only drops it 0.8" & I have a splitter I'm installing on the front of it that does not hang down near as far as a lip spoiler. I bought one of those too, but decided against using it.

I have a weird...thing about my cars being as low as functionally possible. Probably ever since seeing those videos in the mid 90s with the SUVs rolling over on ABC lol I just feel safer in a car dropped 2" plus, it feels more stable when im going 100+ mph. I know what your sayin about keepin it at around stock height through. When I got my BMW, my fear of curbs was gone! lol

wtf?

being low doesn't make your car feel stable. having a properly setup suspension does.

Ok folks - what you are looking at is a pneumatically controlled upper spring perch.

While great for doing exactly what they say - dynamically controlling ride height - there are a few things that need to be considered on this.

1) Alignment settings. Any settings you have, especially on our MacPherson front setup, will go to crap as you start to bounce up and down.
2) Preload on the springs. Notice the springs they are using there. They are Swifts. A very good brand. Problem is folks are going to cheap out on springs and you will affect bump travel and hit coilbind on a cheap spring if you raise the car too much.
3) bump stops and damper travel - gotta make sure you have a bumper of the right length, and gotta make sure you have decent damper travel (this means that cheap ass coilovers with 3/4" of travel will not cut it).

I'm not talking down on these, personally I think it's a pretty cool idea, but there are things that need to be considered.

^^^in other word have your pocket book ready eh?
yeah, basically, and be sure to set a good bit aside for tires.

If you want to go this route my suggestion would be to figure out where you're going to have it set a majority of the time, and align for that, but also keep in mind the changes that are going to be made if you lower or raise it so you can adjust your driving style to anticipate for different situations such as snow or on track.

That's what I thought.. I'd love to have a simple, adjustable solution for DD while still maintaining that low ride for playin around on the streets and track, and then go even lower for shows..

this can be coupled with a coilover setup to maintain low ride height and instant adjustability. our g35 has a similar setup.
Thanks jana, that kicks the shit out of the $3k for the Roberta Cup setup.

Personally, once I set my suspension up & align it, it will stay that way hopefully.




note: I left link alone since it is in no direct competition to any current vendor's offerings.
