I drive in Sport mode most of the time and don't feel any bounciness at all...maybe that is what happens in normal or comfort modes. But so far...so good!

The ride is good, especially considering the amount of lowering. Handles better than stock and by no means is stiff. It can be a bit bouncy in comfort mode, but in sport or sport+ it's perfectly fine.

To put my viewpoint in perspective, I come from an E46 M3 with Clubsport coilovers, and feel that my F10 handles decently for the size of the cat. I also do drive my kids in the F10 with no complaints.

I will say that I am switching to KW V3 coilovers, but that's partly due to achieving my ideal ride height.
Great ride height...even multiple BMW Salespersons (not just my own) came out to look at it after the service guys did the install and nodded approvingly. Looks great. Nicely lowered...see specs.
