This is going to be one slick looking F80. It would be hard to give up an E90 M3 though.

Many of our clients are choosing the Bilstien or the KW Setups currently as the Ohlins to my knowledge is not a direct fit on the F8x chassis (as of yet.) There have been some people that have been modifying and custom making them work however the bolt on bullitproof on the shelf crowd favorites have been the Bilstien and KW setups!

Thanks for the explanation, , but im not saying to F80 specifically, i mean i general which one is little bit better or actually they are almost the same and just basically depends on what brand does customer like?

Well the front suspension is in, and the new calipers are now going on. Now you guys can get a glimpse of how these look on the car. They should look awesome behind the wheels.

Brakes are done and wheels are on. We're getting into the home stretch. Now comes the finite adjustments and some interior pieces as well. Stay tuned!

The HG Motorsports M3 just got setup with the Ohlins suspension for the F8x M3/4!
