    Default F55/56 coilovers?

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has any coil overs for sale? Looking to replace my lowering springs with coils and before I take the plunge of spending a crazy amount of money, I thought i would see if I could pick up a bargain first :)

    Thanks

    I didn't really notice much difference in terms of comfort. After a couple weeks of if bedding in, it went a little firmer but nothing crazy.

    I went with H&R springs and they have been fantastic.

    It made the car look and feel so much better. But my car is a F55 which sits a bit higher than the F56 and springs wasn't low enough for me. So I've ordered coils now :)

    Thatís good to hear. Iím considering springs for my F54 clubman which has the adaptive dampers fitted. My car also sits quite high at the front but I canít justify the expense of a full set of coilovers unfortunately

    Yeah you're pretty limited in terms of coilovers for DDC. Would definitely recommend springs, cheap and cheerful and gives you the look/feel.

    Remember to get it aligned after a few weeks of fitting in case anything is out.

    Theyíll be a set of springs heading onto the Clubby when I get a chance. Iíve got a set of AC Schnitzer springs on the F56 and Iíve had no issues with them so far. Theyíre very compromising and tbh I think theyíre every bit as good as the Eibach Pros that is usually put on.
    Iím not a fan of coil overs but maybe theyíve changed since I last had a set on the car !
    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.
