I too have M adaptive and I was thinking of just getting the M perf springs, IF they are available separately.
Is this what you were thinking to do too?

How much increase in spring rate is there with the M perf springs?
I think I read something somewhere that the spring rates were between 25% to 35%, different front and rear.

A subtle drop would be ok, but I'm fine with the OEM ride height.
I'm not a fan of too much drop for a daily driver especially when driving in a 4 seasons area with rough roads, pot holes, and occasional deep snow events.
A 10mm drop is a bit under 1/2", I think that would look good and work for my needs.

I wonder if the M perf dampers are actually better than the M adaptive dampers? I'm thinking having M adaptive dampers with M perf springs would be the better setup.
From what I'm feeling in my 335i the suspension is basically only lacking firmer springs.

I'll be very interested in reading descriptions from F30 owners who have the M adaptive and then switch to the whole M perf setup.

I'm going to check with my dealer to see if they will install just the M perf springs. My 335i Msport is a lease so keeping warranty is a must.
Actually I did not choose to add m adaptive suspension but my configurator says I have it. If i have m adaptive then for now m performance is not an option. I actually called eibach today. They are in my area and need f30 for testing thier pro kit that is in development. I may go this route and if I dont like it go M performance. I had eibach on my scion TC and then my e90. Was happy both times.
