Hey Scott, you need to clear out you mailbox. Trying to PM you and I'm getting "scottc has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

That looks amazing, dropping it definitely makes a significant difference. Gives it a much more meaningful and sporty stance

Great looking car!

I have a few questions about your spring/spacer setup.
You mentioned trying 12mm instead of 10mm all around? Would you rather have 12mm Front and 10mm rear? Or is the 10mm all around the way to go?

How is the ride quality with the ACS Springs? Is it noticeable? Bouncier?

Thanks in advance, I have a MY17 F80 ZCP and the front wheel gap is getting harder to look at every day.

I never got round to trying 12mm spacers, I still think about it every now and again but for now I'll keep to the 10mm versions. When I got the spacers was still on standard springs so was nervous it would be too much after lowering. But I think the setup could cope with 12mm spacers.

As for the ACS springs, I'm no expert but in my opinion it is not worse than the standard springs. It is definitely not bouncier.

And I know what you mean about the front wheel gap.

First impressions are it's a bit quieter

Only done a couple of miles to reset TPMS and make sure everything's still in place. Will know in a couple of days.

With regards tyre noise .... I think it will be good when the new replacements for Michelin Pilot Super Sports will be available which is the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S I believe. Hopefully these new tyres will perform as well as MPSS (or even better?) but with less road noise. Lets hope.

Are those 19's Rob? They don't look too bad actually... what's the width of the rears? Did Coopers supply and fit?

They are, got them off ebay via Germany. 9" square setup.

TBH - I'm beginning to like 19" wheels, with the 666's I cringe every time I go over holes / big cracks in the road.
