Coilovers question

Okay guys just got a 2010 335 and I'm stoked! My old car was a 2008 speed 3 and I had h&r coils on it. They handled great but on bumps it sounded like my car was going to fall apart, literally like my dash exploded. When coils are installed on the 335 is it the same result or are the suspensions more forgiving? Really wana slam the car but don't want another uncomfortable ride.

It really depends on the quality of the coilovers you choose and how they interact with the other suspension parts on your car.

I have AST 4100's with Swift Springs on my E92 and they are 100% noise free. My car's handling went from feeling sloppy and not particularly comfortable to sharp and planted with absolutely no sacrifice in ride comfort. In fact, I actually feel the ride's improved.

I know exactly what youre talking about. I feel like my whole car is breaking. Right now im on h&r sports for my xi. I just picked up some KW v1's and going to install them at some point before spring. I really hope I dont have to experience those noises again.
