Thanks!

I plan on buying the BC Coilovers off a friend of mine who's been driving the car with these coilovers for roughly 6 months or slightly more...I understand these coilovers should be good for about 60,000 miles.

After that, what do I do with the shocks, springs and other stuff. Do I send it to you guys to get it replaced or update the stuff?

Just a little confused on this...He told me not to worry about it but I just want to get your response...

Oh you were the one for the test fit. Nice. I wanted to check with the concave style instead of straight.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I thought the BC Coilovers came with adjustable top plates?

So do you use the OEM top plates or do the BC come with the camber adjustable top hats?

Thanks Rc that was the write up I saw. Wow that is so disappointing the reason I wanted these coilovers was because of the camber adjustment plates that all the other BC Racing coilovers come with. Oh well back to the drawing board.

Also, I searched the entire thread but could not figure out what is the "minimum" drop for the fronts and the rears. Could someone please provide this info?

Anyone have these that they are using for both daily driving and track duty,specifically the newer version with camber plates?

I have seen some real competitive local guys run these on other platforms with great success.

So just looked at http://www.precision-sport.com/bc-ra...r-f30-3-series and it appears there are camber plates?

Am I getting confused? really want that adjustability.

Have a 2104 F30 328i RWD with 20" M624 rims (they came with the car), so the gap is killing me. Need to drop it asap.

@PSI can you PM me your best delivered price to 78703.

I know this is a bump from the dead but why do companies market struts and shocks and springs as "coilovers". The rears are quite obviously not coilovers since the shock and spring are mounted independently.

Check your OEM suspension setup...
