Hey guys - need clarification on something... I was re-reading this thread this morning, waiting for my 10AM drop-off/install time and whoops, looks like I have the 335 (6MT 31336860629) front springs instead of the proper ones for the 328 (#31336860628). Thanks Ronin for your post about these #s, I never would've caught it.

Just wanting to confirm that the front springs are all I need to swap out? Shocks/struts, rear springs, etc. are interchangeable right?

I've had this damn box in my garage for a few weeks now, before my car even came, and I didn't bother checking part #s because on GetBMWParts.com the only option when ordering the F30 MPS is 'with/without M Sport'. No separate designation for various models...

Installed yesterday, here's a couple crappy pics! The drop looks great IMO, the perfect height...still has some settling to do I think. The change in handling, even coming from M Sport suspension, is nuts. This thing is on rails now!

Congrats! Yes totally agree, msport to mperformance feels like night and day.

Those wheels are perfect, go very well with the height IMO.

Yeah it's not really describable, amazing upgrade.

Thanks! I'm happy with em too, I'll be ordering VMR V710 for next summer and an still debating 18 or 19 staggered. But after seeing this look, I might go with the more practical 18s and enjoy the extra rubber/better ride

congrats! welcome to the MPS group here. you'll find the shocks settle really nicely and the compliance improve a lot more in a couple weeks.

Is this out yet for 428? Typically coupes and sedans had the same suspensions in the past. Is that still true?

I would think a 328i MPS would work on a 428, just provide the retailer with your VIN so they can be sure that front spring part #s are right (these vary based on motor, trans, options, etc).

The coupe has a lower CG, so I would imagine different spring rates, so I would double check with your SA before you spring for this. Right now, it only shows compatibility with the F30 body style.

Hi guys looks like I'm part of the minority with my F30 328i auto and just want to make sure I get my part numbers right before I order.

M Performance Suspension: 33 50 2 320 980
M Performance Springs (Front): 31 33 6 860 629
M Performance Springs (Rear): 33 53 6 860 621


I got the springs numbers from my ETK (see attachment). Should I trust that these are right? I only have doubts because I think I saw someone else with a 328i auto with a different number for the rear (he had ...620).

BTW awesome thread peeps... have learned heaps.
