    I dont think so, it was an optional extra i think. Mtech option came on Sport models as standard and then if you had any other models you would have to pay extra to have it.

    I know that the chassis arms and suspension components on Mtechs are different to standard models. What was the link for?

    I lowered mine on weekend:

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...wheels-t16952/

    Its been dropped 35mm all round on Apex springs but those Boge ones should lower the fronts slightly more than mine. Wish i had gone for the Boge ones to come to think about it!! Hope this helps.

    Cheers for the link

    How good is the ride with the BOGE springs? I drive my car everyday so I do want a broken back by the time I get to work in the morning

    I may get them then, the price is good and if they are the ones they use on M sport then they will do.
