The main difference will be front and rear ride height, front lip/bumper clearance and ride comfort.

Great content. Im still on the fence with swifts as i dont have many passengers. Did you scrape your front lip with the swifts? Is it much better with the v1s?

I was going to get the swifts and based off of JDs recommendation I went with Eibach v2. I'm pretty happy with them.

I did scrape a few times here and there with the Swift springs. I'm a pretty careful driver. But the extra .5" clearance is appreciated. Ultimately the car feels planted with both springs, but the ride comfort single or with passengers is hands down better with Eibach.

Was hesitant about lowering, but read good things from JDE92M3 and found a set of Eibach Euro V1's, and installed the front only.
Barely much stiffer, and handles fine, now curious to pair this along with the CS EDC coding

I thought I was settled on getting the EMD springs but now this has me considering the eibachs. I only want a 1" max drop in the front not really any more.

Thanks for all the effort that went into this OP. I think the drop looks better on the Swift R. Aside from looks, its good to know the Euro V1 is an option. I personally have never had good luck with Eibach. They have been soft and bouncy.

I think if your the type of driver that only uses the car on weekends etc on smooth roads for cruises the swift r with ZCP is still the king in terms of springs.

For heavy loads in the car or when theres more compression or over big bumps the Eibachs may be better, but id rather get the swifts that are better on smooth roads and avoid those other driving situations. IMO

I get nothing in saying this, but CS EDC coding is worth it 100%!

I wouldn't say that I just use the car for cruises and on the weekend. And I didn't want a "dedicated track car." I bought it brand new, tuned it since 7K. The car sees the track 3-5x a year, I autocross it regularly and still like to cruise, take the family out and ohh yea daily drive to work. 59K miles strong not a single issue. But I'm not getting to the point. Everyone thinks stiffer harder springs are the "best" on track. Personally I like when the car absorbs the bump. If someone tracks the car on Swift guaranteed the car may feel "tighter," but it will also have twitchy characteristics. Trust me when I say I buy my cars to use them, that's the type of driver I am . And if you haven't already and you have adaptive EDC, please do yourself a favor and code in CD EDC! Thank me later.

Maybe this will help you with your decision! Drop is perfect, ride comfort/dampening is great and clearance for lip is accetable. This is a teaser, my painted M Performance lip and other details are not installed. So this is all I can share for now of the current condition of my car haha.

Very interesting read.

Iíve had a standard M4, two M4 Comps, an M2 Comp and an M3 Comp. I felt the Eibachs were rubbish, so I fitted the AC Schnitzer springs or the M Performance HAS kit.

Iíve just bought a new M4CS and all the guys on here said the Euro spec V1 Eibachs were the way to go and boy were they right!

Ride and handling arenít compromised in any way, drop is acceptable and they feel like theyíre made for the car. So I can concur with the OP that these springs on a CS and I guess a F8X with CS damper coding are a perfect match.

Iím so happy it worked out! This is why I love the forums and YouTube. I try to explain not all Eibach springs or different model springs are created equal. Different regions have different roads, demands on car, etc. The beauty of the Eibach V1 I can honestly say ride is not compromised AT ALL. Then people assume well if ride isnít compromised then the car is floaty or feels less planted, again false assumption. Last but not least the car looks dropped OEM+ without that slammed look, again personal preference. But when driving around with the lip and having more ground clearance is a blessing.

I appreciate this thread because it answered the very question you addressed in the above post. I kept asking those who attacked people for being cheap buying a HAS kit as to whether or not the cs coding altered the dampening characteristics to accommodate for a mild drop. Of course it went ignored as those same people threw their monocles down in disgust and disdain for anyone spending less than 4k on a “complete solution” when having edc is already sufficient. The beauty of electronic dampening is having the ability to code characteristics that compliment the hardware assigned to it, no?

I already contacted Alex and will move forward with the coding. Thanks JD.

Dude this is awesome! I literally love when Iím able to help people find an answer. Like you I went through the researching frenzy, going from post to post. But at the time, my questions were left unanswered. And Iím the type of person that researches maybe too much, but wonít buy until Iím 100% or close to it haha. So when I talked to myself into swapping to different springs, I myself thought I was crazy and figured what was the point. But Iím happy I took a chance, made me enjoy and love daily driving my F80 and Iím helping others do the same too. Itís funny I explain to others that have Swift or similar springs, but stubborn demeanors make them ďliveĒ with the ride since itís installed already. But I never like to settle, itís not my style! As every social media person please guys whether I helped you or not, think about subscribing to my YouTube channel. Iíll be doing many more videos that will be beneficial. And donít worry I wonít sell out haha

Absolutely man. I even went so far as to ask in the threads I bounced around in to no avail. Group think is real, but so are good solutions. Good on you for finding it and sharing. I thank you. Maybe illl code today and report back.

Also, nice stable you have there I am quite jealous. Only two current Mís for me as the wife refused the x5m and opted for the 3.0

Funny I went and almost picked up the X5 M Sport 35i, but I told my wife to just look at the X5M. And told her to see if it was something she wanted or needed, the rest is history. I donít think the salesperson had to do anything, I was already sellin it lmao. Anyway, Alex is amazing and codes and tunes all my cars! So let me know how the coding goes, give the car some adapting miles and just try to keep note now how the car handles poor roads or bumps and see how it transforms lol. I literally felt like I changed my dampeners. No Iím not exaggerating haha. And tell Alex that James sent you Iíve been giving him a ton of coding and tuning business so heíll take care of you!

Do you think the CS EDC coding is too soft at times? I had it coded on my stock non zcp F80 (stock suspension), and didn't like it as it made the ride too soft/less sporty. But I know you're paired with Eibach springs so may be different.

What do you like better about the MP HAS over the Eibach Euro V1s (besides height adjustability)?

JDE92M3 I had Alex do the coding friday after we spoke. Took the car to C&C Saturday morning which was 52 miles each way. Car behaved better than stock, not one single moment of bouncing, floating or feeling light in the wheel. Loved the changes, loved the car with the height adjustment and the CS EDC coding. Why so many advocate for a whole different solution because they did it and costs thousands more is beyond me.

Admittedly, I have not tried the other setups, but if stock was acceptable to purchase the car and I have made it better than stock, what complaints could I possibly have?
