F13 with Comp pkg, KW HAS kit

My 2016 Coupe has the competition package. I purchased the KW HAS kit to lower it. Does anyone know how much lower the HAS kit will lower it? What I am seeing from searching doesn't seem that much lower than what my car currently sits. Most of the cars that are lowered are non comp pkg cars.....

Thoughts?

There will be no difference in height, whether stock or with the springs in

The M5 comp pack was lower than the normal car but the M6 was the same. So if you're looking at people with the KW HAS installed for an M6 it will be the same as your car.

The M5 was a tad lower using a different shock and spring combo.

As for the M6 i dont know how they are the same height between comp and HAS. i have comp shocks that i took apart and pressed the kw perchs onto, and the kw perches are much lower than the standard comp shock perch height. that being said though, the kw kit max lowering is about 1.5" there are physical internal differences on the comp shock, but nothing is really different on the outside of the non comp to comp shock.

i might have a rear shock picture before i pressed them on for comparison.

PS: after re reading your post i think i misunderstood. if you are saying the M6 comp vs non comp are the same in drop after the kw that is correct. sorry for the confusion

I put a KW HAS kit in my car and it sits great. Highly recommend it as you have good adjustability. Sometimes i found going for a normal spring lowering kit you couldn't make the car sit perfectly level, and the back would sit a tad higher.

I had already purchased the KW kit when I made this thread...

How much did it lower your car? Are you on the lowest setting?

Its not on the lowest setting. The front still has more adjustability than the rear. I left it slightly higher at the front so that it would not get damaged by driveways etc.
