Indeed; the drop is conservative but the visual difference is simply amazing; it looks so much lower now and fills the wheel wells appropriately; you're correct - the rake is really negligible; the recent failure of H&R suspension products on the Z4MR in San Francisco (see my thread link to take you there) is frightful.

Any updates regarding your suspension upgrades? As noted in post previously, the H&R spring assembly failures are of concern.

Couldnít wait any more. My original ship date got pushed back to some undefined date so just bit the bullet and picked up GC single adjustables. Obviously it was more than the B12ís but when you factor in the camber plates and other supporting hardware, it wasnít too bad. Very happy with the kit so far.

To those that made the switch to the Bilstein B12s would you do it again?
Are you glad you switched to the B12s?
Do you need new camber plates? or can you stick with the stock ones?
Thanks

I really like the handling of my Z4MR with this setup. No need for camber plates. I replaced a ton of other suspension parts (see my posts in this thread). I think the Bilstein B12's and the Eibach Pro-Kit Springs were less than $900 from Turner Motorsport.

Turner says "This product is no longer available for purchase."
