BMW F30 335i M-Sport Before and After coil-overs

Hey everyone,

We just wanted to post our recent experience with coil-overs on the F30 335i.

We worked with BC Racing NA to develop the F30 kit, so here it is in action.

Again, this is before and after. The after photos are set to MAX LOW, full drop. It will not get any lower than that and we don't encourage driving on the coil-overs this low. We just did it to take measurements and photos to show how low it will go. The car was raised to a nice drivable height that eliminated most of the "wheel gap".



Before:

If you're interested in a kit for your F30, don't hesitate to ask us!

PM or call us for more info!

Here is a photo of its daily driving height. Again, "To each, his own".

Thanks, Ian!

The car was NOT driven like this and it IS too low. But, there are always those extremist that want to push the limit of anything. These will allow you to do so.

It's just for measurement and development purposes and was raised up to a drivable height.

There are people out there that find this to be perfect and then there are others who disagree with this height.

We're just showing what it CAN do.

Not 100% sure about that. With these at full drop, you can't turn the steering wheel more than 75 degrees. If someone want's to go lower, I'm not sure how you would get anywhere without rubbing the fenders to the point of cracking the paint.

What rake did you settle on? And why?
Have any shock dyno graphs?

The customer ended up making a few more adjustments to the ride height of the coilovers himself. Not sure on the rake.

I'm sure I can get the shock dyne graphs for you. I'm sure the guys at BC Racing NA would have no problem with it.

Wheels are in the works. Won't be long before the new setup is on it.

aren't the point of getting coilovers to be able to rip through corners? that would just rub like crazy. I tried to do it once but every time I cornered hard in my cars, it would just rub all over the place. I would put it low enough but make sure it driveable.

It's definitely no longer that low, but it's still quite low, like in the very last picture, and does NOT rub with the OEM wheels on it. I'm sure we will be raising it once again once the new wheels arrive.
