[edit] I just remembered they changed engines for the 335. it's not even the N55 anymore, is it? or is it? tunability down. not good. never mind hehe.

Lemme know when you ready, I'll shop for you...or you can take over my new f30 m sport coming soon,,..next year.

Scrooo the M4... looks like the m235 is the way to go if the price is right. 315 hp// lsd, dct//...faster than the 1m around the N- ring. That might me my next car in 1 year.,

hmmm we're getting that in Canada?? that'd be interesting - we never saw the M135, and I would have bought that in a flash if it were available.

I may get that instead, the spy pictures look nice!

honestly, I advise against it - I've done it, and it WILL mess up your shocks and it WILL make you bounce like a delivery van after a few months. not recommended.

You should get a combo of lowered shocks/springs, otherwise get coilovers...

^-- that.

if you want to go cheap, just get shocks + springs - but in reality, shocks are easily $500 and springs are $200, might as well get cheap coilovers (like KW v1) for $1K or so. That's new. Used would be even cheaper, but make sure to get low mileage units, especially if from cities with broken roads.

Yes a sport line. Got it at 39.5k with premium package and 16k km on them. Not the best deal, but I hopefully didn't get raped

Yah, I was going to buy them too until I saw some reviews saying how it bounces like a roller coaster when you get through some speed bump. And with the amount of holes in Montreal.. But if you want to get some, go to ECS tuning. Nicest deal and not too far.
I may look into the m suspension. Waiting to get the m-sport body kit installed first

I went through a set of springs and then added Bilstein shocks ... made things better for a bit but deteriorated after again.

The car is too heavy - so need a properly matched set. Which is why a cheap set of reputable coilovers might be the best choice! Also lowers the car (which the M suspension won't). oh yeah - I also suspect a set of KW v1s will be a lot cheaper than an M suspension

I got Bilstein Sport shocks and Eibach Pro Kit "i" springs on my e90 xi, with e36 m3 rear bump stops. So far so good.

How long have you had this setup? I had the same shocks with H&Rs, and after two years they stated feeling a bit bouncy in the front.

The car may look better with springs, but will eventually drive like poop!!! Do as I do, put the mother in law in the trunk.

I do. don't know if he does this regularly though. I believe you need a new type of cable and definitely new software. I can ask him if you want, though.

Thanks! Let me know how much he charges too! I think I have the right cable, just the amount of reading is overwhelming me...
