M2 c/w MP coilovers - added front -ve camber with OEM parts

Post by Blind Pugh » Thu Mar 29, 2018 10:02 am

M2 c/w MP coilovers - yesterday added OEM front -30min camber correction hubs.

Went from front camber / toe of -1.5 camber and toe-in -0deg 6’ to -2 deg & toe in -0deg 2’ & 3’

Drove the car on A & B roads x country on a mix of dry/damp roads. The car feels better all round probably due to KDS tweaks since alignment from MP coilover install mid Feb. Extra camber is visually noticeable - maybe hard to see in the attached photos but by comparison rear camber is at circa -1.75deg

My Initial impressions -

- Turn in definitely feels sharper on the few dry curves I tried.
- Front end grip was already great to start with and now understeer threshold seems a fair bit higher.
- Main gain - given the cr@p conditions - was higher grip & feedback levels on moist corners is most noticeable change.

In summary - I’m happy and creates more room for wider tyres in the future - 265/295 perhaps ??

Next on the to-do list

- swap out to 18” 513m wheels c/w 245/265 MPSS tyres
- get the corner balanced and on a damper dyno to fettle MP coils B&R settings.

EDIT - parts used were part nos 31217853639 & 40 for the L & R hubs

In addition, I chose to buy new bolts etc for both sides

8 x m12 hub bearing bolts 31206872920
2 x m10 bolts, washers and nuts 07119905418 & 33326768884
2 x m6 isa screw 07129904588
4 x m12 torx cw washer 34106864424

Looking forward to seeing the car on the 513's.. Did yours not come with the M3/M4 spec tyres (255/275) as they normally are sold with them on the used market?

What settings have you got your coilovers set (Do BMW have a recommendation for rebound/compression a'la KW)?

Wow bet that wasn’t a cheap upgrade BP?

Are they specific M car hubs?

OEM route -

Agreed - not the cheapest but then not that much more than high end top mounts and less labour to install. As with most upgrades - you get what you pay for. Big pluses for me were:- fit and forget, more reliable, NVH free, warranty and insurance friendly. Having had -2 upfront on my m135i - via lowered springs and F8x LCA & TS - I think that's as about as far as I wanted to take front camber for my car.

F8x specific hubs -

Yes & mlites - like yr m240i - come with F2x equivalent -30min hub carriers from the factory, as one of the OEM differentiators from the lesser m sport models.

Update

Driven more miles on drier roads and have to say the feel/turn-in/grip levels were already good but -2deg from these camber correction front hubs have made a noticeable improvement.

Not cheap - compared to non-oem alternatives - but being OEM and fit and forget was worth the extra $$$ IMHO.

Roll on the next trackday !!!
