Hi there,

No real update, except to say I love driving my car more than ever, since the install. I have had the chance to drive in comfort a little more, and there is definitely a noticeable difference between sport+ on the on and off ramps. I still prefer sport+ 24/7 But it is nice to be able to "tone it down" for when others are in the car for their comfort.

We just did another install today, maybe said person will chime in with his first impressions. We will also be doing another install of this kit next week. So lloks like there is more impressions and reviews to come.

I feel that it doesn't really communicate with the driver. Would you say that this is improved much over the stock damping and caracter of the car?
Hi there Johnny!

It's funny that you mention "trust" in the car, I also felt very much like you with the stock suspension. There were a lot of times I would have to "brace" going over certain roads, and now with this kit, I feel confident and safe in the fact that my car feels planted on the road. Completely different feeling now when I drive, I feel like I can trust the suspension to do what it needs to do. Night and day difference for me.

Hi.
I am said "person" that received his Bilsteins today and installed.

Previous setup was KW HAS on NON ZCP F82.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

1. Driving experience: EDC, Comfort/Sport/Sport+ mode feels alive. What I mean by alive is that there is a very profound feel of what each mode does.

2. Comfort: Very cushy feels light, and definitely perfect for long cruising subtle drives.

3. Sport: Soaks up everything that i ran over. Bumps that I would slow down or 2nd guess was basically absorbed. It's really a fantastic feeling. The car feels more grounded than before and there's good feedback. Something I felt was not as apparent with springs. The roads where I used to have some floating sensations are now eaten up by the dampeners.

4. Sport+ : In my opinion, sport mode but everything is much tighter. The best way I can describe this is I really feel that my M4 feels like a 2seat sports car. Handling feels very engaging with much more feedback to road conditions.

5. Driving Dynamics: Going from KW HAS kit to Bilstien Damptronics, I feel the driver engagement is elevated. But it's not overly aggressive where the ride is stiff. The best way I can describe is that the ride now really soaks up roads whether they are terrible or smoothly paved.

I will give another update after a week of settling and more miles. This is my first car ever with coilovers, so I wish I could be more technical, but I just don't have the experience to share more in depth that what I did now.

I couldn't happier with this suspension. Special props to Kim, and Eric at Supreme.

sorry for late reply here! Ok, cool, sounds good! That's what i was after, feel trust of the rerar end. If you don't feel trust you're not going to be fast.
many thanks for the reply, i Think i have to talk to my bilstein dealer here .
