F30 M-sport slammed on BC Racing coilovers

I got in touch with BC Racing and was able get my hands on their first set of coilovers in the country for the F30. This was just a camera phone pic I took after the install. I would have posted more but the car and wheels were dirty due to all the rain we've been getting here in FL lately. The car is at max drop in the picture bc they wanted to see how low it will go. It will be raised up a little bit for my everyday driving. I can't give you guys any feedback just yet on the ride quality and such bc I haven't driven the car yet. But I will give my feedback after I drive it around for the weekend. The coilovers were shipped to Precision Sport Industries who also did the install so if anyone is interested in a set, give them a call

What does having the roll center below the surface of the earth do for the handling?

It looks like a 20mm spacer can be fitted to the rear!

I would be interested in knowing what the spring rates stock and the BC Racing C/O's as well. Also, can the ride height go to stock? What's the minimum lowered amount?

I think it's like over-large, silicon breasts. Some people like it, most people think it's trashy and it leads to back pain for the person driving them.

hmm...actually I would prefer those M5 reps to any HRE or BBS (in terms of looks)!! Of course a lightweight forged HRE will perform better.
