Guys, just a quick note to say I had my "group buy" Coils fitted by Rybrook Warwick last week - wow! Moving from the Eibachs to the coils is (as you would expect) totally different league, car feels like its has all four of its wheels nailed to the floor, and the ride way surpasses that of the Eibachs (more even, more subtle and I would actually go as far as to say, more comfortable). I was a little apprehensive being the guinea pig (although the dealership had fitted coils on M4 prior, they hadn't done an M2 to date) but they did a stellar job and I couldn't be happier. The M technician that fitted the coils was so impressed with the ride and feel that he's getting them for his own M2. The job is a full day's work and includes up to 90mins of KDS II alignment and also please note, the car needs to be flashed with the latest iStep version (as there is some chassis management within the software that the car needs to be told its running the M suspension) so you will lose all your nice coding / and will likely encounter problems should one have had a cheeky tune. Only coding for me, but luckily I put a V-Gate ODB and the Bimmercode App on my Christmas list so I am able to re-instate all coding at home.
That's good feedback.

I'm guessing there is a period of wearing them in so it will be interesting to hear how they are after a month or two or maybe 500-1000 miles. I'm sure I read somewhere that they settle after a while so you may find the ride changes a still.

Thanks for the update BishUK.
Black M2 - DCT - black grills - MPE - and a slight wince when I get home late or start early.

I thought my modding days were over but this car is making me want to mod away yet again!

You and me both !

My M135i was easy to justify the fettling as flaws were numerous and evident early on.

M2 is a different story - very good out of the box.

I intend to tweak chassis (MP coils) out of choice rather than necessity. Engine wise I have a Fabspeed DP to add and then aim at CSR FMIC as read a lot, from several varied sources, that m2 responds well to both even without a tune.....

Without the exhaust that’s ~ 4K on remap, FMIC and coilovers - that’s a chunk of change TBF.

I’m looking at MP coils, DP, FMIC and obd flash remap either MHD or BM3 for <3k

I agree. Ive limted myself to one mod a year, starting from now🤣. I have down the downpipe, exhaust, steering wheel, spacers, mperf carbon bits, lowering springs, breaks, ppf, et etc already so I am already heavily invested. Would love some vorsteiner carbon goodies and some new wheels but will do coilovers first.

Speaker upgrade and Recaros/M4 seats are on my list, I have sworn I won't touch the engine.

After a bit more time on the coilovers I would agree about the power going down a little bit smoother.

Did you get it done in a day ?

What's the name of the tech so as can ask for him when booking mine in.

Interesting to read yr comments about MP coils v Eibachs. I test drove 2 m2 with modded suspension one with Eibachs and one with MP coils. Comparing Eibachs to stock m2 they felt 2nd rate.. No comparison to MP coils, moreso given the Rybrook price !

Enjoy !
BP, it can be done in one day and mine was planned for same day drop off and pick up but I had a few issues so it was overnight for me. Due to illness I couldn't make the Wednesday I was booked in for, Tom kindly squeezed me in for the next day on the basis that it "might" not be complete. He gave me a 4 series loaner anyway and even offered to have the car delivered back to my home the next day. Naturally i didn't fancy a stranger driving my M2 for the best part of 80miles so went back the next day to pick up. I think they also underestimated the time it took for KDS alignment and I also had a few issues getting my rear lights to work after flashing to the latest iStep (I've installed LCI rear lights on my non-LCI car and they were wired by a friend ((and worked fine)) - but had to be re-wired by Rybrook ((the BMW way)) for them to work with latest iStep.

I can't recall the Technicians name but I will ask Tom again and let you guys know. Tom mentioned both your names (you&YaoNg) to me when I went to pick the car up and he said he was sorting you guys out soon.

I'm more impressed than I thought I would be on these coils and yes, I'm expecting them to get even better once I've clocked a 1,000 miles in them (by all accounts this is case).

I was also surprised to see the car actually sitting lower on the coils than it did on the Eibachs. My car has been set up to BMW factory coil specifics (595mm front/600mm rear - the fronts of the car sits visibly lower on the coils than the Eibachs.

Sounds like an ace job bish, may have to drop them an email as hope to make a decision this week on what suspension to run but missed the boat on the offer so will weigh it all up from scratch

If you like the look of the ASTs I'll put you in touch with a contact at the factory.

That looks superb. I've read that rear springs settle more than front coilovers so rear may drop a smidge more.

I'm on my 18" winters just now but might just go to Rybook to get it done sooner rather than later and have it setup on 18" wheel spec and hope it comes out looking as good as yrs does........

Debating whether or not to get Millway top plates to dial in extra front camber - did they give you a print out of KDS post install and if so what did they set front/rear toe and camber to ?

I did ask Tom for a KDS print out when I was paying the bill and he said he would send one to me via email. So far nothing, I will chase him up today on this and let you know.

I have AST 5100s on my mini JCW, good setup. If you look up Marc Rutten on facebook he'll be able to give you feedback on 5100's as he has some on his M2.

JD,

I communicated with MR via FB and he never had AST c/overs on his M2 - this is what he told me end Sept last year
I do not have them on my M2, but I have them on my MINI GP2. I sold a set to a friend of mine in CZ and he is the first one in the world to get them fitted soon. My car was used for the development, but I am still running the stock set since I am not planning on changing the set up on the M2.
Confirmed by MR in his F87bimmerpost below
