EOI: Suspension upgrades

With the height of the car being off one side, is there any interest in after market suspension from a supplier? We might be able to try to get a bit off the purchase price if we buy at the same place. Also, if anyone has a connection who can get a special price on KW suspension, please let me know

I can get bilstein and kw's relatively cheaply but what are you after?

im considering not going coilovers for the f30 as its only a 328 but just going after a spring/shock combo like eibach+fsd

depends what you are looking at comparing. Ride comfort, my stocks would be more comfortable as i am not even feeling railway lines. Yours will be the sports so depending on the brand it could feel the same or softer at softest setting and pretty hard on full stiff. The benefit is no bodyroll. BMW has made a very good chassis for the f30 and i am just use to the stiffer suspension and less sway on turn in.
