    I put coilys on my e46, without buying the shorter droplinks.

    My mechanic found that e36 M3 drop links worked - but think it was down to needing DL's with different sixed bolts on each end? Weird.

    God knows, all sorted now though.

    standard droplinks are about twice as long as they should be for coilovers. with the hyundai droplinks your brake lines will rub it under full compression but thats nothing a couple cable ties cant sort out. my mechanic ended up cutting up my standard ones and welding them together cause the hyundai ones failed my m.o.t. :\
