Have you had a chance to put the handling through its paces? Since the Vogtlands are progressive, I am curious how they handle close to the limit. As far as I know these are the only progressive rate springs available for the F80. Any impressions/review would be greatly appreciated.

Marc,
Unfortunately South Florida is void of roads where you can do some spirited driving. I did, however try the springs in all three adaptive suspension settings on tight on and off-ramps, and accelerated cornering. I love how much more planted and responsive the car feels, but I can't tell if this is also the adaptive suspension getting the best performance out of the progressive springs.
Handling is crisp and firm, but civilized. Daily street driving, even on the Sport Plus setting will not shake your dental fillings loose.

Not sure if this helps, but I am very happy with them. Much more than H&R or Eibach on my previous cars.

Cheers!
