Oh yeah, very happy. Couldn't be more happy. The car drives amazing, and the ride quality is so much better with the new suspension and the wheel swap. Totally diggin' it, and loving the fact that you guys are so close to home.

Huge shout-out to all the guys that work in the garage.....and of course, Mr. Kevin himself. =)

Btw, I left my stock springs at the shop. I was so happy that day when we replaced the springs that I left the old ones there and drove off. Oops! haha
I'll come back very soon and pick them up and probably have you guys do another mod in the mean time.

See y'all soon.

Yes, it can be used on M4 for a little less drop in the rear.

Installed mine today. Bought them from EAS. After having a horrible experience with the botched batch of Swift Springs, I can say that I'm more than pleased with the comfort these provide. If I didn't know better, I would say they're OEM springs, just lower. Macht Schnell really nailed it with these rates. Highly recommended!

Appreciate the review! Everyone we've installed the springs for on our side seems to echo the same points and are very pleased with the handling/ride and height.

How come so many people are installing swift over these? These seem to be a solid choice!

Swift are linear rate springs (like factory designed one). That's big. Plus they have very performance / track oriented spring rates but without being bouncy because, again, it's a well designed linear spring rate. ps: All this when everything is going right and you're one of the lucky ones that didn't get screwed by their quality control department😂😂🙊 (I shouldn't laughing too much, I may be one of them being I haven't installed my swift springs new in box yet) lol

Can't say enough how comfortable these springs are. Had them up to 120 mph (closed track) and plenty of public roads. They respond so well so bumps and road imperfections. These could be rebranded as BMW's own M spring, and I wouldn't know the difference.

Sorry,
They do, but they hide under the car pretty much.

We've been modifying the M4 side skirts to fit on the M3. Looks a bit more aggressive than the F30 ones.

Sorry,
Like supremepower mentioned the f82 side skirts look the best. With a little trimming the fit the F80 perfectly. Here is an example:

Sorry,
IND now sells the F82/F83 M Performance side skirts pre-trimmed to fit the F80 M3 (which is what I have on my car);



http://ind-distribution.com/ind/cate...-side-sill-set

And to get things back on topic, I'm also lowered on Macht Schnell springs and I find that they're a perfect blend of comfort/performance for me...
