FS: BMW F80 M3 OEM spring set

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
Sold

Item Interest
Selling my BMW F80 M3 spring set. Confirmed it is from a F80 M3 with DCT transmission with no sunroof. Complete with bushings and spring perches. I purchased these to go on my F30 but decided to go with OEM Sport springs instead.

These will fit and work for all F3x 3 series cars. Fitment is verified by other forum members: https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1584904

Lowering will vary but on a F32 Xdrive it lowers the car 1/2 inch. Spring rate is 20% more than stock F30/F32 for a OEM+ upgrade.

It depends on your set up. From stock standard suspension it is 20% stiffer and 20mm lower. From stock sport/msport suspension, it is about 10% stiffer and 5-10mm lower. But the lowering will vary from car to car because the weight is different for different models.

I'm interested, but the only verified fitment seems to be on a 428i, and I have a 328i. Can anyone confirm these would fit a 328i?

Also concerned about the fact that these were designed for the weight of the 6cyl, and not wanting some kind of weird reverse rake in the front.

It looks like you have a 328i also, and decided to stick with oem msports, so maybe I should too!

Sorry, I do not have any information on how it will look on a 328i.

The springs are guaranteed to fit on the 3 series as it does on a 4 series. But no one has installed it on a 328i yet so there are no reviews or pictures of this fitment.

If no one is interested, these are going in the trash.

It's a total loss for me because I purchased them but I have no storage space!!

If anyone wants them, please do not let this perfect set of springs go to waste.

Don't install F8x or other 6cyl front springs on a 4cyl RWD car. Your front end will gain height.

4cyl xdrive cars though can use them though since the weight of the transfer case + 4cyl engine is close to that of the 6cyl engine. The ride height will be about the same as stock or a slight bit lower (likely 0.5" or less).

Given away! Hate to see these go to waste so they're gone now - it's a total loss for me.

Please post a review and let the community know how they turn out!
