Red face F32 Noob

Yo yo yo what it do babyyyyy?!

Iíve recently joined the F32 family coming from an E36 and I am LOVING my car so far. Iíve been lurking and reading over this forum for quite a while now and have a couple questions that I havenít seem to have gotten a solid answer on, hence why Iím here.

Iím getting some RFX11 mounted tomorrow on my 435i and would like to lower my car soon afterwards as well. Iíve been reading over people on springs like H&R super sports, Dinan, Eibach, etc. Iím looking for the super sport low but I couldnít really determine what the best setup would be.

Would H&R super sports be okay to use with the M-sport suspension (not adaptive, just 704) if I also get shorter bump stops? Or does it require more than that to keep my shit from blowing. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome. Great car.

The Suspension forum has many active threads about H&R springs. Worth investing some time to review before making a purchase decision.

(imo), oem m-sport damper life, performance and ride will be reduced with h&r super sport springs, even with shorter bumpstops.

shorter dampers, such as bilstein b8, would be a more suitable match for the h&r ss spring height and provide better ride performance as well.

If you wanted to retain oem m-sport dampers, I think eibach's mildest drop with shorter bumpstops, would be most suitable for ride, performance and lifespan.
