BC Racing BR Series Coilovers 07-13 1 Series - 128i,130i,135i

The BR Type BC coilovers for the BMW 1 Series are the perfect choice for street driving and the occasional road course or auto-cross duty. With easily accessible adjustment knobs for fine-tuning compression and rebound, ride height adjustment independent of shock stroke and spring preload, having a performance coilover system has never been easier. The driver chooses how low or high the vehicle sits (no preset ride height here!) and a BC Racing patented concave lower locking ring keeps it locked securely in place. Most systems can be upgraded to pillowball mounts to provide the most feedback possible from the suspension and to sharpen steering response. BC Racing front camber plates also allow a driver to get the perfect alignment setup without compromise. Each of these features is offered, while providing a strong, attractive coilover system at a reasonable price.

I ordered BC Extreme Lows and they came in after a week and a half and I live in Alaska. I was amazed. Will be ordering from them again for sure

BC BR Coilovers w/ Swift Spring Upgrade - BMW 135i

Great customer service. Great quality product. Install went relatively smooth thanks to the in depth instructions provided. The BC Coilovers ride great with the Swift Spring upgrade (definitely worth the extra money). Adjusting the ride height, dampening and camber is also a breeze.

135i coilovers

Great coilovers I love the stiffness and when on full soft still comfortable.

One of the rear springs and spring adjusters is scratched pretty bad

This is supposed to be a brand new product and they are expensive :/ i’ve been saving and waiting for a while to get them and now that I have them I feel like they are not worth all that time, effort and money... also the stickers they sent are peeling off I don’t know if this is because of bad quality of just old.
