What size are your bars?

Chassis
How is the suspension of the M635CSi and M6 different from that of the standard 6 Series?
Both the M635CSi and M6 utilize a MacPherson strut/semi-trailing arm suspension design that is common to all E24 6 Series. However, it has been tuned by BMW Motorsport and features a number of unique components. The suspension of the M635CSi is more dramatically altered than that of the North American M6 and includes the following changes:
-Specific front and rear springs (also fitted to E28 M5s produced before 10/86) that are stiffer (by 15 percent) and result in a reduced ride-height (by 0.4 inches)
-Increased steering caster
-Specially-tuned Bilstein shocks (also fitted to E28 M5s produced before 10/86)
-25mm front anti-roll bar (up from 19mm)
-16mm rear anti-roll bar

The North American-spec M6 shares its springs with the standard North American-spec E24 635CSi (as well as the European-spec E28 M535i) and therefore does not benefit from a reduction in ride-height. However, it does include unique shocks and a larger (compared to the standard North American 635CSi) 21mm front anti-roll bar that is shared with the early European-spec E28 M5 and North American-spec E28 535i/535is. The rear suspension is largely identical to that the North American-spec E28 M5, complete with automatic load-leveling rear shocks. Unlike the E28 M5, however, it retinas the smaller 16mm anti-roll bar from the M635CSi.
