M340 no lowering options

You would think after 6 months of waiting someone would have a lowering option for the m340

Lots of places claiming Q1 2020 for all sorts of mods... Honestly the Supra coming out around the same time has all tuners consumed, so it's taking forever. You can get anything you can think of for the Supra from dozens of tuners...

Agreed! I have quite a few performance mods from the Supra on my car.

I am hoping something comes out that lowers and softens a bit. It's a rough ride for stock suspension.

They're for the 330. The spring rates are a bit different.

I am assuming that to this day we still have no lowering options for the m340i.

This car has been out since last spring, I think May, 2019. While the 330i was released a few months prior, right? Yet, no aftermarket nor BMW springs have been made available. I don't get it

Thanks for that info! However, prefer springs over coilovers, due to cost. Leasing and don't want to pay the price for coilovers.

Exactly, I dont want to use the coilovers since I paid a premium to get the adaptive suspension. I just want to lower the car an inch to 1.3 inches so it doesnt look so high.

If itís adaptive, canít it be coded? I know you can code it in the Audis with adaptive suspension.

Adaptive suspension uses basically the same coils, but different dampers.

There are products (Dinan shockware as an example) that are available for other BMW platforms (F30 as an example not for G20 yet) that will modify the parameters of the dampers but that has nothing to do with ride height.

Some Audi's and Mercedes (and others) use an air suspension that can be programmed (or mechanically tricked ) to sit lower

Dinan springs/bumpstops (for RWD) will be available the end of February / March barring any unforeseen issues. Just FYI.

This is off topic but what about your exhaust for M340? When will that be ready?
