Actually The springs are great, My complaint with them is that the drivers side is a half inch higher than the passenger side and it drives me nuts lol!
I wasnt planning on buying coilovers but found the KW DDC coilovers new for a price I just couldnt pass up. And still being able to switch between Comfort, sport and sport + modes with coilovers is awesome! I wouldnt have been able to afford them otherwise. I got lucky

Can you expand on the following:

Clutch Spring Removal
BMS Bumpstop
Clutch Delay Delete

What do each of these do? Would you recommend?
Yes, I can give you my take on it and the reason why I did personally. A lot of forum members here have done it as well. I'll break it into stages depending on what you're after

Stage 1 (Just want to alter clutch movement) (very simple)
The bumpstop is a very simple mod and to sum it up it pretty much just allows you to change how deep the pedals goes when engaged, The OE bumpstop is laughable compared to the BMS, much better clutch feel and shorter push if you want it to be, I didnt like how far the throw was stock. comes with more spacers than needed.

Stage 2 W/bumpstop (Want more clutch feel) (Some mechanical knowledge and tools)
The clutch spring removal allows you to "feel" the actual clutch more (not the pedal) IMO since the helper spring is removed. When you press the clutch in the spring stretches which I believe to be misleading because you think you are feeling the clutch but instead it's just pressure from the spring being stretched and wanting to snap back.

Stage 3 W/ all above done (want total Control of the Clutch and feel to the best of what can be done) (mechanical knowledge and tools required as you must remove slave cylinder and drill it out)
I believe this is the best option for people who have a lot of Manual driving experience and want full clutch feel. The delay valve is there to reduce clutch wear for people with less manual driving experience and to make clutch driving easier they say (and I would assume) with the clutch delay deleted I believe it's much easier to feel and manipulate the friction zone of the clutch when driving more aggressively.

Anyone can feel free to chime in on this if they think otherwise but this is what I believe to be true based off my experience.

Interesting, no such problem with my Dinans, but that would bug me too! Nice snag on the coil overs, price notwithstanding I would've 100% gone with coilovers as well. Looking forward to pics

Here's one I took yesterday. With the coilovers so close and my roof still damaged I'm going to wait before going out and taking photo's. I love the wheels though, I was truly nervous about how they would look. But, they are great!

Super clean. Bronze on red is bold but I like it

Congrats on the new setup

Thanks bro! I love it, I was a little worried about the more aggressive offset with the 275's but with a little negative camber They fit perfect and It's still looking like I'll be able to tuck them nicely with the KW's. The last remaining thing I want is the MHI big turbo But I'm going to wait till the Stock one goes first, It's going to take a bit to Recover From the Wheels and Suspension :/

I feel that. I'm gonna ride my stock turbo as long as I can, but if it goes, it's definitely gonna be MHI.

I think melbourne red is such an underrated color for our car. It really looks amazing.

Ya blue is most popular, funny thing here where I am in Vancouver BC is, there are lots of blue black and white, but I've only seen one other red F30 and F32 on the road ever, its the most rare color here period for F series.

Yeah I've seen one red one local to me and it's a 320i, I've seen two or three e92's though. I'm happy to have a red one although I wasnt looking for red when I purchased I'm Glad it worked out that way.

Yes, I lived in Bay Point. I left in 2013. I still come back all the time. I own a commercial property in Calaway that got hit by the hurricane. Used to do a lot of racing on 79 before the air port was back there. From 2004-2008.

Finally got my KW's installed :)

I actually had cold feet the night before throwing them on because some of my past experiences with coilovers weren't that great. Likely because they were all budget coilovers. I figured I'd try again with a Well Known brand in a higher price point and see how it goes. After looking around and around I kept going back to the KW DDC Coilovers because I really liked the idea of still being able to use the factory control of comfort thru sport+. Some months later I just so happened to come across a brand new set at a fraction of the price of retail so I couldnt resist. I must say I am impressed, the ride quality is still excellent. So much in fact that my wife didnt even notice I had put them on lol (she is a comfort snob) so that says a lot to me haha. Car looks great now, body roll was significantly reduced and I can still switch back and forth thru the suspension settings.
