Retrofit CS Suspension on pre-LCI Car?

*EDIT* - I mean to retrofit the CS suspension on a Pre-LCI 2015 F80. Thanks for pointing my confusion out CanAutM3

I know the part numbers to do this retrofit have been floating around the forums for quite some time.

I'm interested to see if there's any first-hand feedback on how the pre-LCI cars feel with the swapped CS Suspension components.

Even better if someone can give a comparison to driving one that was retrofitted vs. a ordered CS.

Thanks!

In your title you mention CS suspension but not in your text.

You might want to go for the CS setup, it will be less expensive on your base F8X than going ZCP since you can retain your springs and front sway bar.

I believe Racer20 proceeded with the M3cs swap on his early base F80, albeit with the MP-HAS springs IIRC. I believe he was very happy with the improvement. He might want to chime in.

You are 100% correct. I meant to say CS retrofit.

Check my posts from summer/fall 2018. The M3 CS + MP HAS feels great on my 2015 M3. Much more Porsche like. Higher quality damping gives the car better ride, better handling, and more usability in all three modes. I picked up about 0.4s at the track from the suspension swap. No regrets at all.

Note that it's an all or nothing situation. The CS parts and software work as a package and won't be balanced if you try to mix/match with ZCP and base parts/software.
