Installing it yourself? Since you're local, is it possible to get a ride once you install it? I want to know how's the ride and how low it goes. Kinda tied in between STs and BCs.

Installed them last night an I am not happy at all.
I lowered the rear all the way low and I still have a finger gap.
The front I can get the tires tucked under the fender.
I got these because on my tein springs I had a finger gap in the rear and I wanted to get rid of it "talking about Extreme Drop". I would not recommended anyone on getting these if you want to go low. Hopefully I can return these and get a set of D2 Racing Coilovers

You try talking to the seller to see if there's another option? Im doing my research as well on which coils to buy based on being able to tuck the tops of the tires with no gap...

Just called them and they said that they probably sent me the regular springs not the extreme drop so I need to check the # stamped on the spring to see if there the right ones.

Yea thats what i thought could've happened... I'm in Miami, if that was the case and they send you the right ones I'd love to see the car when it's all finished up. Looking for a good set of coils to buy soon.

Hopefully it will be fix! There was another thread about BCs not going low as well. http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=780463

Here's some install pics :










This is how it sits with the rear all the way low and the front I still have about 2 more inches to lower.





Rear wheel gap

So these are extreme NO drop ….? WOW…!!!

I saw you posted on another thread that BC made a mistake…? Is this even with the correct springs….?

Buddy of mine has BC's on an e92 M3 and the car sits very low, not sure why the e8x sit so high…?

I think I’m going D2 coils, they defiantly sit low.
Hope you get the car to sit right ….

Where do you live in Florida…? I would love to see the car in person.

You really shouldn't be going any lower...you'll actually make the handling worse of the car...which completely destroys the point of any bmw. It's like buying a 357 magnum and modding it to fire a .22....sure the .22 bullet flys faster, but what's the point??

I live in plantation

I called BC and I sent the the part # on the spring and they said they would get back to me after New Years since they are closed.
If these are the extreme drop I am definitely going to return them and get me some D2 racing coils. I need MOAR low the fronts will go about 2 more inches low so that Is fine but they should be able to make me a custom springs in the rear if this is the extreme drop spring but we will see.

Have you thought about the fact that you're running smaller, stock wheels? Might look much better when you change that.
