With the M3 links, you will need M3 rear dampers, which will be available separately sometime in June. For the front, you will still need 135/335i front struts, which are available now!

I was under the impression that if you purchased the 1M rear camber links it would be possible to just buy a 1M front+rear suspension kit (coilovers, strut/damper etc) and bolt it on with the rear camber links on an otherwise stock 135i. Am I wrong?

You will have to upgrade to 1M/M3 front spindle too if you want the 1M/M3 front struts.

Thanks for the reply Harold. Is there any benefit in upgrading to the 1M front spindle? Also, is the upgrade very involved in terms of installation and does it cost much?

You will get the bigger 1M brakes as well.

Besides the spindle, you will need the hub, rotors, calipers, brake lines and likely different offset wheels.

Oh....well that rules out that then hahaha.

Lets say I wished to get the 1M rear camber links, would it be possible to get a coilover set with 135i fronts and 1M rears?

Hey, I'm just glad other people want this and are asking Harold the same questions I asked a month ago.

Package this up with some swift springs. 60 N/mm front, 120 N/mm rear like that 1m setup. Add in the camber link as an option and I'm sure you'll get orders!

How do you find them nugget?

I'm in the market for a suspension upgrade (only M3 strut tower brace done so far) but I'm not sure how much I should spend.

Damn Pity.
I was also under the impression you could get 1m Ohlins coilovers and use the rear camber link.

Doing the Front hub is a bit of a mission ..pity

the whole idea is to be able to adjust the front ride height and the 1m/e92 ohlins does that.
OHLINS is the Shiz.
run them on my bike

Yes, in the very near future, after the demand of the 1M/M3 R&T kits slow down and Ohlins is able to stock replacement parts.

No a shop is doing it, has been installed taken out and reinstalled as they thought it couldn't be right. At the moment the front spring perch hits the wheel and it is sitting like a 4x4.
Trying to figure out if it's them or the kit's fault. But it's looking like spacers may be necessary which is weird as my front wheels are only 8" wide with 225s on them.
