Query on removing Adaptive M running gear

Commonly known as the Adaptive suspension, has anyone one swapped it out for a set of coilovers? Even in sport mode it' s a tad too soft for my liking.

I am not sure if it can be done. How complicated is the procedure and what is required? ( cancellers, coding, etc.).

I heard that there are KW V3 that can be used with the adaptative damper controls, but I couldn't find the partnumber

kw ddc coilovers
kit no.: 39020018

those should be the ones that work with the adaptive. Very cool kit just google KW DDC for more info.

I almost ordered them, but went with a racing dynamics kit instead.


Cheers

Are you sure that is fits f20? Seems to be for F30, do F20 and F30 have identical suspension?

Anyone has done this yet? Or do lowering springs help the body roll significantly?

Stiff springs will always reduce body roll. So will stiffer dampers, which are mandatory for stiffer springs.

How significant the change is, depends on how stiff suspension you buy.
