Another BC Coilover thread....

Hey guys,

Been looking for a set of coils for around a month now and finally decided on the BC's. They are exactly what I am looking for and fit my needs.
(Save the "KW's are better!") We all know that

My question for current BC owners is, where did you guys purchase them from?
I know flushstance has them but just wanted to know of other places you guys might have gotten them from...Perhaps a better deal?
Haven't seen any vendors here sell them yet.

Would be nice if everyone posted where they got them, that way someone won't have to go through thread after thread hoping to find some info.

Thanks!

Got my BCs from Circuit Motorsports. Found them on another BMW forum. Great price and awesome service! I worked with Tristan and he was really responsive and helpful. They sell a lot of these to BMW owners as a lot more guys are finding out about them or have come over from the jdm world.

I have heard good things about Circuit Motorsport.

Sometimes garages local to you have BC coil connection too

Which vendor can mix & match BC coils ( non-M e90 front & M rears)?
Any ideas?

Those are my same motives. Can't stand my wheel gap. I will not be tracking or anything of that nature. A little spirited driving here and there. I will also not be slamming my car either. Although I am curious how it would look on the max drop

Basically, I was not looking to spend over $1500 for coils. So that ruled out the KW's. That pretty much left BC's, ST's, and ST S1's (Sonic Tuning).

I have read many reviews and never seen a negative one on BC's on the forums. And they seem to be picking up momentum as more people are buying them.

Also, the BC's come with the damper adjustment. (ST's don't, S1's do.)

At this point, based on the reviews between the BC's and S1's, you're basically picking which color you like better.

I will be going for the BC's.

We have installed several BC coilover sets on MINIs over the last couple of years. At first the customers have been very happy but the shocks have started to leak within months. We haven't done any BMW kits so I can't speak to those.

I'm looking to order within the next few days.

Pretty safe to say that the going price for these is $995 right? All the companies say that they will price match but there's nothing to match as they are all selling for the same.

+1

I have heard a few cases of the shocks siezing and therefore not being adjustable anymore. I suppose as long as you have warranty it should at least cover you if that happens.

Thanks for the info.

Unfortunately, the shop is 3 hours away. So it would be a 6 hour trip altogether.
I don't think it would be worth it for $100 in savings.
