Nice! I live in Fort Worth, so Arlington is half way but on Sunday, I'll be up in Garland, most of the time just driving my f10 once a week.

If you have EDC on your F10 like mine, don't go for coilover, H&R is the best there is. Still keep the EDC performance and lowering your ride, plus handling much better. I actually did a lot of research before settle with H&R springs. I check ACS and Ebiach but didn't like neither. I was gonna do KW coils but I will lose my EDC so I'll past on those, beside is about $3,200 compare to $330. So if you're gonna change your setting and lowering your car every other week than go with coils, but who have the time to do that? I suggest go with H&R springs.

I can input you on how to install the springs, it a bit tricky but if you know the trick it quick and easy.
Oh, you need tools, especially a compact gun and springs compressor.

Most shop will charge you $300-500 to install them.

Thanks! I decided to go with Megan Coils... I spoke to a handful of owners over PM and they had nothing but good things to say about them.. I had them on my STi back in 2006.. and have had KW2's on my 335i and Bilstein Pss9's on my 305z.. for $900 its worth a shot.. I have all tools and a MaxJax lift in the garage... wanna help?!??

when are you gonna do it, I think you're in my DFW f10 facebook group right? Well, if you're too far away, I won't able to. I work in Waco, and live in South of fort worth, so let me know where you at, if it's not too far, I can give you a hand.

I just did my lowering last week, it wasn't that hard at all, but you do need a buddy to help you take the strut out. I took the f/r strut out with losing only top mount and bottom mount. well, the front you have to lose top, sway link and bottom. You don't need to take anything else, and that is the trick to get it done faster.

If you don't have EDC then coils is good for you, but if you have EDC then good luck, you just lose your EDC mode.

I'm posting this on Bimmerfest as well...more details as we get closer.

If we can get a group together, here are my suggestions...For us guys in the Ft.W/Arlington/Mid-Cities area, we can meet at the Irving Starbucks on the corner of Hwy 114 and MacArthur. We can then caravan to the Plano Starbucks on the corner of Dallas North Tollway and W.Parker to meet up with the Dallas guys before cruising into C&C together.
