But I actually would like to order some coilovers. There is a lot of different brands out there and I came across BC racing coilovers. They are prey affordable but I never heard of them so I am asking you guys to see what do you guys think?

I had these on my f30. Different car but I have nothing bad to say about them. They were almost perfect right out of the box and with a bit of minor tweaking I had the car riding and sitting how I wanted it to. I drove the car daily - a few clicks off the stiffest dampening adjustment - and found them to be extremely tolerable/well handling.

As for the f80, is this going to be a significant increase from stock? Maybe/maybe not. Depends on your goals. If you all you care about is a stiffer ride and moar low, it's probably fine. To track the car? Eh. They are definitely more affordable than the other options and I don't think you would go wrong with getting them.

Would be great to hear what others are saying who are running this suspension on our cars.

Have them on mine for about 12k miles and no issues at all. Used them on previous builds of mine and always had the same great results, at a fraction of competitor coil over prices.

I might get them instead of my KW HAS. Good part is you can buy every single piece individual at BC. I think I give it a try.

Car looks good. Only one thing that disturbs the clean look. The rear fender protection film. I would wrap the rear fender with PPF. I have done it and it protects better and doesn't change colour with time.

Only issue is the rear fender is continuous with the top rail and is over $1k to wrap. No shame in a couple chips over the years but worst case you respray vs spend $6k on a full wrap

Just cut the wrap at the "sideline" of the fender from the middle of the doorhandle and back to the rearlight. It won't be visible. We do it on all our M3/4's.
