Another pic, now ready for winter on 18X8 square wrapped with 245/45-18's. Come to think of it I initially set my ride height with these on a couple of years ago almost.

Sidewall! Sidewall is good. 19" LMs look good.

And they feel soooo much better then stock springs. Every M should come with them.
So much better like, smoother ride? or stiffer for cornering or track days?

I wanted a softer ride for daily driving (wife complaints) and also to help me drag launch. That's why I picked MP-HAS. It still hugs the curves too, just not "glued down" like a track setup. Philly potholes would wreck a track setup quick.

When I asked Tommy L Garage he said to pick MP-HAS for a notch softer and street use, but to pick KW-HAS if I wanted a notch stiffer or for track use. I think Tommy tried every combo of everything so far...

We've talked about this before, but I truly believe your impression is the minority here.

Though I'm probably used to the MP-HAS kit by now and have already forgotten what the OEM ZCP setup felt like, I distinctly recall feeling my ZCP being BOTH tighter AND more or equally comfortable when it was first installed and riding on the OEM 666s.

I've actually been very pleased with being able to get rid of the OEM 4x4 stance and not sacrificing ride comfort.

You appear to overall be displeased with the MP-HAS though. Have you considered going back to OEM or trying out something else?

truth is....i am negative on the car. I want to sell it. The CH issue ruins it. Sorry to change the subject.

I dont have anything incremental to share. I think its softer than stock.

I installed one of the first sets years ago. I prefer OEM recommended settings, drives much better than stock. EDC set to CS

I just got back from BMW Dealership with M Performance HAS installed and 10 mm spacers front and rear. My settings are currently as follows (see photo):

Front: 606 mm
Rear 598 mm

This setting is waaaay too low. I've already made my first scrape on my front lip just going up my driveway.

The factory recommended settings for 20" wheels are:
Front: 633 mm
Rear: 626 mm

I will drive the car about 150 miles for a week or so, to allow the springs to settle as recommended by the BMW tech. I'll then go back to the dealer to get the height to 625 mm (front) and 615 mm (rear) and an alignment.

It does look great like that though!

Yes you are too low currently. May I suggest going slightly lower in the rear. I am currently set pretty much exactly where you are. I am at 24 5/8 in the front and 24 1/4 in the rear. The car had a slight rake which I donít love. I am already aligned to I donít want to tinker with it. But Iíd suggest leaving your front at 625 and going 24 inches in the rear. I will say my car and your car once u change it it looks like how it should have came form the factory. Itís not a slammed look at all. The wheel gaps are super close as well. I am Happy with how it looks. But I think 1/4 inch lower in the rear would look better.

Matty088: So you are recommending 625 mm (front) and 610 mm (rear)?

Yes. I think that would be just perfect on stock 666 rims. It will look factory but a hair aggressive.

Not slammed

For reference, that's essentially my ride height on pg. 2.

I need me some spacers though.

here is my car at the dealer getting MP HAS installed, it's set to the lowest setting front and rear. I'll get more and better pics soon. I am very happy with how it turned out both looks and feel wise.
I ordered spacers to complete the look
