What suspension set up are you running on F82's

Those of you with F82's please post your lowering spring set up. I know some guys have switched to HAS, so feel free to post your set up and previous as well. Post your experience with ride handling/comfort and miles driven. Also if you have passive or edc. Please post your pics as well, especially if you have custom 19" or 20" wheels

I know there's a lot of older information on here with regards to lowering our car, but take a few moments to post in this thread to make it a generally used spot for those of us trying to pick a set up. This will serve as an updated list of recommended set ups since our cars have been out several years now.

I've always had coilovers or springs on my BMW's, and just now deciding on a set up for my F82 with EDC. Looking at MS, Swifts or the ever so popular H&R sports. I have 20" custom Strasse Forged wheels coming in shortly and want to eliminate gap.

Looking forward to this thread

MP HAS, great compromise for track/street duty. No EDC delete required.

I'm not in stance nation but for anyone who is into track, here's a shot of mine with 18" Apex EC-7.

That looks stunning, did you measure drop? Looks about an inch up from and a little less in the rear.

The suspension was adjusted for my stock 19" + 20" staggered wheels. The stock tires are approximately half an inch larger in diameter. I didn't measure but it's a pretty significant drop from stock. I'd guess around an inch and a half lower.

Swift Springs. Only had them for a week but so far very impressed with them. They are a bit stiffer that the OEM ZCP suspension in the Sport + setting. Not terrible or teeth chattering. I feel like with the time they get a bit softer. Very please with them.

How can they be stiffer only in sport plus?

That looks fantastic. What's the widest you've gone tire wise in the rear?
