Can't wait to see how it looks on the BC's!

Btw, you have the 2nd set of BC's for the F30. First set we used for development. Just a fun fact.
That is a fun fact, thanks!

09/05/12

BC coilovers installed

I first want to thank RC at PSI for hooking me up with this kit and getting it to me quickly. Being in Hawaii it takes forever to get stuff so it was nice to see these show up in such a timely manner. They went on quite the journey too. Taiwan to Korea to Alaska to Kentucky to Hawaii lol...

The coilovers went in. My friend, who is a professional mechanic, came over to install them at my house. The install went well with no surprises. Everything fit well too, which is always a plus. He said the install is very similar to an e90 so for you DIYers you shouldn't have to much trouble.

The coils use the stock top hats and rsm's, so you will have to reuse those. They do provide adj endlinks for the front swaybar so you will be fine there. Spring compressors are needed for the front, but not the rear. Also be sure you replace the top hat bolts, strut bar to top hat bolts, and clamshell nut as they are single use only. The top hat nut for the strut is not needed as you will be using the nut supplied from BC.

Went with 20 clicks from full soft out of 30 and set the ride height to 13.25 inches front and rear. The goal is a 13 inch ride height from wheel center, the extra .25 for now is to let the springs settle and then do final adjustments. BC uses 600 kg front springs and 1200 kg rear springs for those interested.

Iphone pics of the install:

Stock front assembly removed


BC front assembly with oem tophat installed


Something's missing


Installed


Stock rear assembly


BC rear assembly with oem rsm installed


Installed with a blurry pic


Horrible night time garage pics of the drop








That's all for now. Waiting on the wheels and then a proper shoot will be taking place.

Thanks!

They will be 19's and since Morr sponsored me, I am unable to share pricing. The pricing from the vendors here is more than reasonable and I'm sure one of them will be more than happy to help you out. That finish is hand brushed with gloss clear.

For tires I'm going with Michelin Super Sports in 235/35/19 and 265/30/19.
