The fastest I've driven is 125mph on I-05 in Cali and that was when I was in university. That was pure straight freeway.

Young and reckless. Watch out for those disguised cop cars bro. They drive 535 and could outrun our 528 with no sweat.

Last time I drove this fast and got caught in HK was doing 130 on a 80 highway. 5 points off. But that was like 8 yrs ago. and by a disguised cop car.

Congrats!
Are there any advantages to the eibach at all? Is it total victory for the KW coilovers?
If so, may have to reconsider eibachs

Glad you know that floating finally
Actually you can feel what our meaning after spring swapping, especially the rear which I can sense it's even smallest bounce or swing

yo bro, good to hear that you love it. I think the car will lower a bit after settled. My car can only fit in half of a finger for both front and rear. Also, I noticed that it is not as stiff as beginning, maybe I get used to the V3 already, not sure. Btw, what setting you do? box setting?

I can tell you that with this spring installed, besides conering the stability is also improved a lot! It feels very calm even over 200 Km, perhaps because no floating any more
If there is enough road opened, I will try out how many will trigger the limiter intervenes!
Brother Jacky and others, Would u mind telling me whether it is possible just to change ACS spring for F10 since there is electronic suspension (Comfort/sport)? Further, after change ACS spring, would there affect much on the comfort side? thanks in advance

Yes you can. I have

And small effect to comfort, but you will probably find the car on standard suspension bouncy anyway.

BTW, I think the new F10s, having comfort mode does not automatically mean you have dynamic suspension...... Or maybe it is ECO mode now...

No electronic suspension as standard. The dynamic driving control only affects the throttle and steering. So you can change any sport springs you like. Will improve cornering and "boat feel" a bit. But if you want real improvement go for coilovers.

Don't trust the sales. My sales told me that too, eventually I found out it's not true. These sales are idiots and don't even know what they are selling. And you have a lady sales, right? Bro, concentrate on the car and not the lady, just kidding. It's a $50,000 or so option. You think BMW will offer this as standard?
