    After seeing how much we like our MSS suspension on all of our cars, our friend Joe Achilles got in touch asking for some for his M2 Competition. We invited him …

    Now you've seen us install the MSS kit, head over and watch Joe's video to see what he thinks of it on his M2 Competition, and also as a little bonus in an M140i! –

    Canโ€™t imagine Eibach & Bilstein not doing a fab kit for this car๐Ÿค”

    Seems like KW do an exact same set as the MSS but considerable cheaper. Might even be made at the same factory.

    Uk roads are awful. Sounds like this is the kit for the job!

    I thought you were wearing a Kilt at about 1:50 or so ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can you tell us the spring rates of these springs ? …KW HAS e.g. has 120 N/mm at the rear main spring

    Hmm Iโ€™m do for an upgrade on my 235i. I guess I need to find a way to order to the states.


    Love these collab videos! Have you fitted any g20 3 series with MSS yet? I am seriously considering a set and value your opinion.

    How much does this conversion cost for an M2?


    How does this compare to the KW HAS kit? Quite similar mechanisms I reckon?


    Another brilliant vid on the MSS suspension kit! I'm really glad I've had this setup on my BMW M235i it really does work a treat and improves the overall drive and handling, especially when you go for a spirited drive on a flowing B or A road… Many thanks guys ๐Ÿ‘

    @Evolve Automotive Any word on those air intake duct fixes for the M2 Competition? ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

    Joe Achilles

    Absolutely awesome video guys, my M2 is genuinely UK friendly now ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers guys!


    I'm sure the bottom spring is stiffer but its not what gives you the handling and flatness. It looks like spring rate 1 is all coils working on both springs . Spring rate 2 which will be higher is thanks to the top part of the black spring going coil bound making the black spring stiffer so the effective rate of the two springs is higher. Spring rate 3 is black spring fully coil bound meaning your are just on the orange spring giving an effective spring rate higher again. So its actually the orange spring giving you the "flatness" and black spring adding the comfort. Lets say 60N/mm for orange and give the black one and arbitrary 120N/mm on all coils and 200N/mm when top section is coil bound. Using (k1*k2)/(k1+k2) for springs in series you get roughly Spring rate 1 = 40N/mm. Spring rate 2 = 46N/mm Spring rate 3 = 60N/mm

    Interesting system. How much of the black spring is coil bound at ride height?

    I just ordered a set for my C63S.
    I really hope this improves the ride quality a bit. (Less harish ride)

    Joe the first thing I noticed in this video is your exhaust muffler. As someone with an OG M2, I am so thrilled to see an M2C with a good rear end. Your car looks exponentially better with a normal sized exhaust hanging down!

    Just watched Joeโ€™s video, he seems very impressed which is good enough for me. How much we talking for a set on an M240i please ?

    William Carvalho

    Great video guys!! Thank's for the insight.

    Kung Tita

    Thought Iโ€™d watch this 1st, cool video, off to Joeโ€™s channel now ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    KC Google

    Did he actually torque down the suspension bolts unloaded? Lmao


    Personally i think the wheels donโ€™t suite the car get some new rims joe!

    KC Google

    Shouldโ€™ve gone with KWs or another company that actually has top flight motorsport experience and R&D. Smh


    Bellos to joe !!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
