Yes, has to be careful when you park now, especially with piping behind

Btw, didn't mould the trunk lip into one piece, right?

If you are consider spring, why not trying KW? I think it should be fine. On sale now 3K included installation, I think you can't bid that price, worth to give a try.

Actually, originally, i thought was going to install KW, because i thought cost was just double..but the cost is almost like 5-6x...haha i don't know if i will get value out of it. I think I not fully appreciate. Even with the KW, i still need to take to shop eveyrtime for adjust...not like own adjustment.

I think i keep all mods under 80K..otherwise i will be annoyed that i didnt get 535

Coilovers and springs are like night and day. I think I would get KWV3 if I didn't get the springs. Now I just wait for my stock shocks to fail and.... hehe.

Tones of mods even with 535, may be minus the exhaust since the dual output is already good looking.

hrmm...whats the cost for H&R in hk? $4K?

Assume, I order KW in US, you know the approx charge for install? I don't know if they mark it up more just because we not order from the shop. Maybe i make friends with WK and get the MSport and other stuff and see...i guess worse comes to worse, i can install the KW and if ever switch cars, haha pull it out and sell it haha

I went to Asia and the guy told me to get coilovers for 18k, he didn't like my 550 pro-kit on 528 idea, or the modify Eclass FSD to fit F10 idea ..

KWV3 for 18K installed? that seems reasonable.

H&R 3.5k installed. Not much saving if you order aboard so don't bother for the shipping charge and wait.

Please get the KWV3 coilovers and get sick of them for a few months and sell them to me for bargain price.

Where is Asia? What kind of coilovers for 18k?

Forget the 550 pro-kit, modified FSD grimmy. Why bother if something is readily available, R&D and tested by many F10 owners?

Koni has coilovers for F10 now? I think any coilovers you can adjust the height you want from stock to slammed. For you non-typical dude, you can have them higher than stock even. Just like a Range Rover.

If i got coilovers i would just leave my jack in my carspace, be fiddling with it by 1mm all the time..
Have it so high you can see the color of the shocks+springs .. like that would be very very weird

Back to BMS, do you guys know anyone who has experience with the install? If i order it, I don't want to install it myself. No patience, and i am terrible with tiny screws....tend to lose them all over the place.

RC3, whats the other option besides Hamann for the quad exhaust? Theres Supersprint or something like that? Is that ~same $?

I think many mod shop can do for you. They have instruction provided. So just throw it to them. Should be a piece of cake for them.

Hamann, Supersprint, 3D Design, Arqray, Remus... These for you to investigate.

+1 You still need to mod even with 535.

After a week or so driving with the V3, I actually think a bit more stiff would be even better for fast cornering. But now I can't complain anything, it terms of comfort. I actually feel the car ride better with more comfort compare to stock, even going through speed bumpers. Hopefully I'm not bias.
