Suprised to hear that from Ohlins, I dismissed them as I didnt like just a 10mm drop, the eibach springs drop it 25mm which seems perfect. Will see how the bilstein prevails. If i remember I will stick a go pro at the back wheel for bofore/after on the same stretch of road to see the difference in body control over bumps and general driving.

Ohlins R&T wouldn't be my first choice, they are very popular on the lancerregister and quality appears to have went downhill with frequent rebuilds needed.

IIRC Alackofspeed [ALOS] on here had Ohlins DFV c/overs on his mlite for a short while

Above is his FS thread to move them on as I don't think they stayed on the car long - IDK why though - best to ask ALOS directly....

Anyway deposit down for the PSS10s . Feel confident they will be a huge leap forward so lets hope im not dissapointed. From the feedback from the MPC it seems that coilovers are the way forward so will report back once fitted and driven around. Got a couple of tracks days booked too so should be fitted well before then.

Below is the OHLINS spex which show 10mm, and nope havnt considered ACS RS.

You won’t regret going for PSS10, I have them on both my cars (F30, F22), and they are incredible bang for buck.

assuming a reasonable drop is that arch work required with the MP setup or was that purely down to adding the spacers?

Terry

HSD C/overs go much lower than MP c/overs and they are running spacers to mimic the offset of the 20” wheels due to be fitted soon.

Arch fettling is required to clear the wheels as opposed to lowered suspension.

Thanks BP, that was set too low for my liking there so I think the MP would suit me if I go this road

The HSD coilovers will allow any height you wish, from factory to very low, large range of adjustment. I have them on my M135i.

We recommend Bilstein equipment over the KW equipment at the moment although both very good setups.
