What does this MP suspension add-on for adaptive do ?

By the real oem part compatibility it is only fitted to M Cars and F20/F22.

Thanks

This MPS retrofit kit is similar to the same kit already offered by BMW for m235i. It retains stock adaptive dampers but uses new shorter springs and bump stops.

Will it fit pre LCI M135i with adaptive shocks?
Thanks!

Yes the kit will physically fit. I ran aftermarket springs on my pre LCI M135i 5dr and top tip is to try and get yr pre-LCI adaptive damping control module flashed by BMW with latest firmware - I had it done on my car in an attempt to remedy a random clunk/suspension noise issue. Didn't fix the noise [new ePAS rack was the culprit] but later FW refreshed/improved orginal damper responses.

Wow thank you for the TOP tip! Didn’t realise reflash could be a possibility. Is there a update version number?

I used a Quaife on my e81 130i (with Birds B1 kit) and it was great. But that expensive option will have to wait for now on my F20.

Meanwhile, I was thinking of these, Eibach or similar springs, with arb. In your experience would that help or should I go with a front only arb first? How important are the bump stops? I don’t track the car but good B road experience is what I am seeking, along with keeping the adaptive functions.

Thank you!

Does anyone have any more info on these? I've emailed BMW and they said that "with the car having adaptive suspension there is no M Performance Springs available"

:?

2 suggestions:-

1. Have a read of this post from a previous BB thread viewtopic.php?f=74&t=90702&p=1170569&hi ... 1#p1170341 and use the info to access bmw online parts portal. Put your cars vin last 7 digits in and go checking MP springs part no for your cars configuration.

2. Go to another dealer.

Could anyone confirm the PNs for the springs?
I believe the realoem link is just the front bump stops despite the picture.

I have these for the springs:

31 33 6 860 630 – Front Spring
33 53 6 860 619 – Rear Spring

If someone could confirm as other part numbers pop up in searches.

Many thanks,
Henry.

Think I managed to confirm myself! From the ETK parts linked thread above:

For anyone interested there are 3 different part numbers for the rear springs which are dependant on the options selected. Playing around with it it seems a normal ish spec Auto, Adaptive, M sports suspension is 619 rear springs

option code S4UKA "5-seater" changes the rear spring to a 620 as does electric memory seats and S164A "Exhaust emissions standard EU6" - PPF equipped cars?

must be a weight thing moving the spring band about, the fronts don't change though.

So maybe I will need 620 rear springs as my car will be PPF equipped.
Edit: Euro 6 was 2014/15 so this can't be right regards PPF. Assume all M140i's have the EU6 exhaust emissions code then?

either way have a play yourself with the options codes for your car.
