Spring recommendations f30 RWD

So I've tried dinan springs and their a bit soft for me...

Any other spring ideas with similar drop to dinan but stiffer ? Especially the rear!

You could go with ACS springs, it's a bit lower on the drop about .9-1in inches instead of .75 from the Dinan. But from what I researched the ACS springs were pretty stiff.

I'm currently running M-sport springs from a 335i on my 328i and it's awesome!

Weren't you going coilovers?

Dinan springs alone are bouncy since the f30 shocks are generally soft

Run swift spec-r springs. Linear and are excellent handling designed for track use along with street.

Agree with the rear springs being soft: stock, M-sport, or Dinan!
B8s are a big help, and a bigger rear anti-sway is nice.

I'm very happy with my H&R Sport Springs for daily driving and occasional track use.
