I have the b12 kit with a polybushed rear end and don't find it too harsh for everyday use. Thats after 15k with it on.

Been running b12 kit for a few thousand miles now and I like it, the car sticks and handles better. Along with 225/35r19 tires I need to be vigilant for potholes!

I’m a new B12 customer (had them for a month now on my 130) and it’s a great value upgrade. Previous car had coil overs so used to a firm ride, and the B12s are firm but also very controlled.

I think from my suspension knowledge (racing mountain bikes), they have quite a bit of low speed compression, but when you hit anything rough or potholes (ie high speed compression) they perform so well — so much better than stock M sport.

As mentioned in a lot of other bits of the forum, having new bump stops makes a massive difference too, and that probably the biggest change for me. My 70k m sport stuff was totally gone and not supporting the car properly at all.

My only critique is I’d like it a bit lower, they come out the same as the M sport for me. Perhaps should have gone for the sportline but it is nice to not worry about speed bumps etc
