Mildly Aggressive for the BMW F30 w/M Sport Suspension
Front: EC-7 18X9” ET42 EC-7 Rear: 18X9.5” ET43
Although we’ve tested this setup on a base model F30 328i with KW V3 suspension, a lot of you wanted to know if it would work on the factory M Sport suspension with and without the Dynamic Handling Package. You don’t always need to be heavily lowered to have an aggressive wheel & tire setup and this particular setup is the perfect middle ground of wide wheels and tires, concavity, and a snug fit without modifications.

When modifying it, TOYO Tires and KW Suspension came in on the project as sponsors and we set it up for street use: low, flush, and more comfort than handling. This car was not going to see the track.

So there it is, a great street car with a lot of room, that gets over 34 MPG, and can go 0-60 in under 6 seconds. With the the KW V3 coilovers, TOYO T1 Sport tires, and APEX EC-7s it has the perfect stance and the attitude we were looking for. Although we weren’t very concerned with the handling, the V3s and T1 Sports are so good, the car is a total pleasure to drive.
Fast forward a couple of months when our E36 M3 track car blew a motor just before an APEX Company track day and we had no choice. We were forced to take the F30 328i or cancel our track day. That wasn’t about to happen so the F30 it was going to be. Continue reading
