Got ACS Springs installed

It is a little early because I just arrived from getting the AC Schnitzer springs installed, but WOW!! These things are so very good!!

I understand they need to settle and the car will drop a bit more in the next few days, but the ride home from getting them installed was illuminating. I run 21" Alpina wheels and the ride is still very comfortable, but the handling is so much better it feels like a different car. I can compare it best to my old E39 with sport package. It is firm but very compliant and over bumps I can barely tell the difference from the standard Sport suspension. The car is no longer floaty, the body roll is very controlled and the is very little dive under braking or lean when cornering. I cannot recommend these enough. BMW should have these springs standard on the Sport package, because stock, it definitely does not drive like "The Ultimate Driving Machine"

As soon as the car has time to settle I will take some photos and post them.

Good night.
