With Suspension I wouldn't try to save a few dollars if it effects the over all ride quality/safety of the car
Where I can order them ? Who is a vendor ?

Can someone confirm a solid 19" setup that doesn't rub? I'm not looking or OEM wheels / tires and want something wider than 275 out back. Trying to maximize performance / grip. Thanks!

It's a very nice setup and i do not scrape anywhere, drop is perfect looking and practical
I have a non ZCP, and coded in ZCP it definitely feels a lot better. But curious if the CS will make the ride more compliant. My only complaint with swift is how they react when going over jagged or harsh bumps. Other than that on smooth surfaces it’s a amazing! Curious what you had before and what you think of the ride on bad roads.

Before i was stock, stock edc, stock everything.

On bad road it's fine but it's a sport car so it can't be like an audi a4 allroad but it's perfect to me

I have no regrets with the swift springs

Ok boys! I took the plunge. I have a non-ZCP car added swift springs and almost wanted to remove them. The bounce, the ride quality, everything about it almost felt unacceptable. Than I got the ZCP EDC coded in, made a world of a difference. It made the ride about 90-95% perfect. The issue was the car drove like a dream and had zero body roll on roads that were near perfection. But if an abrupt bump or potholes showed up, this is where I almost wanted to get rid of the springs again. So I was debating doing new shorter bump stops, and than possibly just changing my whole setup. Finally decided whatís the harm, tried out the CS EDC. And my god it made all the difference. It made the ride 100% perfect, body roll is gone, bump/potholes donít scare me. Iím so happy because I have the stiffness/rigidity I want, without the compromises to the ride I was starting to despise. Guys donít hesitate, if you feel ride could improve or ride is almost 100%. This is the key! I know Iím sounding like Iím exaggerating, but Iím literally happy to report my usual route to work is nothing but smoothness and car settling in nicely regardless of road condition. Also, hard to explain but car feels so composed and balanced now!

The harshness over sharp bumps is likely from the excessive compression damping in the OEM dampers.

Hey guys, new here, and new to the car, so please bear with me. There are some people in this thread talking about zcp vs non-zcp cars, coding zcp/cs into non-zcp etc. I'm a bit lost. I have a standard m3, non-active suspension, is there something else I need to do to the ecu after having the springs installed? Many thanks!

If you have a non-EDC (non-adaptive) suspension, no software updates are required.

just got my swifts on. car definitely feels more sporty. less pitch and roll. I do miss the extra comfort in comfort mode but its a small price to pay for the improved looks and getting rid of wheelgap.

word to the wise--- DO NOT go to the dealer for install. I figured it would be around 6-700 for install like my 335 was. WRONG. They wanted 1000 and stated it would be 9 hours labor.

Hey guys, when swapping the springs to the swifts, do I need anything else to be replaced or its just a spring swap?

What's everyone doing for tires with their Swifts? I'm still on stock 255/275 sizing, but I'd like to move to 265/285 for the next set. Anyone having clearance issues?

After 2 months of reading and asking other forum members, I decided to go with the Swift springs. Installed them last weekend. So far very satisfied with the springs. Very easy to install also. Used ED springs install guide from Youtube. Took me about 2 hours to do on a lift. Anyways, the ride is very similar to ZCP suspension in Sport + setting, just a bit stiffer (in comfort now) but not terrible. I do daily my M4.

I run 275/30-20 front And 295/30-20 PS4S on my bc forged wheels, zero rubbing, zero issues. I went through two different sets of springs before I settled on the Swift's and I think they're as close to oem ZCP spring feeling and seem like a perfect match for the EDC shocks. The ride height is absolutely perfect and I couldn't be happier with the setup.

Hi Guys,

I've been reading a lot of threads here. I'm from France (please forgive in advance my english lol), and unfortunately, there are very few bimmer who tune their cars, and most of the time it is always with EU massive diffusion items...

I've been buying some US things for my F80 that I own since September (in manual, which only represent about 3% of all F80 here...) and I am looking for springs / spacers right now.
I've read all the things about Eibach's and H&R so basically I exclude them from my short list.

And I found those Swift spec-R springs that, apparently, keep the stock riding and allow a massive drop.

Now the question I have => Does anyone have fitted those springs with 763M ?
I am willing to install them, together with 12 front and 10 rear spacers, but afraid of rubbing issues...

Also, if anyone knows a company which can ship them in France, I would be very grateful!

Thanks a lot
