Anyone tried MSS Modular Suspension Solutions kit?

I am curious to hear anyone else's experience with these:

https://mss.company/shop/mss-sports-...ies-f22-coupe/

Both with how the springs themselves work and how your experience has been dealing with the company.

I ordered a set on the basis of a few comments on this forum, but had to cancel it due to unforeseen circumstances.

The solution looks pretty optimal where I want decent control over ride height due to clearance issues.

I had them on my VW R32 MKV. Changed from Coilovers (revalved v1) to Oehlins with Stock for a little while and the added MSS and the difference was noticeable
- R32 has lots of weight the MSS made it turn in easier and felt more neutral (vs understeering pig)
- Comfort up from Coilovers and on the same level as Stock springs (maybe slightly smoother at low speeds and more controlled at high speeds)
- roll was dramatically reduced
If I keep my leased M240 vert I will add a set. At 600 GBP it is not a cheap option but worth the price (especially with the pound tanking)

MSS was easy to deal with and I didn't have any problems at all.

Search in Audi/VW based forums as they covered these platforms years ago (think I got my set 5 years ago) so you will have a lot more people who bought/drove a set.

There is a build from Tom Wrigley (spelling) who used MSS on his M240 > can't find it right now but it is here and on babybmw

MSS

Evolve in the UK have recently fitted a set on their Audi RS3. See YT link for video.

I am considering going down the MSS route also. I have been in contact with them and found them to be very responsive. They have an excellent reputation, particularly, as said above, with Audi/VW owners and in Motorsport.

There are a few but the charge 900-1000 for a set that MSS has it for 600 GBP so direct seems to be better.

Not sure if I understand ... you look for your product

Put it into the cart and shipping to the USA is 75 GBP (shows up automatically for me)

Around 1.2 dollars to the British Pound. The pound is weak just now due to Brexit so a good time to buy with US dollars.

Anyone else try these here? Seem like a great solution to setting up the ride height exactly like you want it.....

I'm about to pull the trigger on these for my M235i. Just wanted to know how are they with adaptive suspension. I see that some people had bad experience with HR springs saying that it destroyed their adaptive struts.

A Message to these guys might shed some light on that as they have experience with MSS on BMW and Audi.

Do they have specs for the spring rates F&R? Based on construction I'm assuming they're linear? Think they'd be compatible with camber plates?

They won't divulge them. I've asked in the past. Very much a, "Give us your money and trust us that you'll like it." These aren't for people looking to know exactly what they're setting themselves up with.

They should work with camber plates designed to use the OE top thrust bearing.

We've fitted quite a few kits now and our M2, M3 and M5 were used as part of the development process for the BMW kits. I've been super impressed with the way the suspension rides and handles.

I will try and get a video review done on one of the M140i/M240i's we have installed the kit on.

Curious that they don't specifically mention or list M2 fitment although I'm assuming it's the same kit as the M3/M4?

Wow, I didn't even realize these were an option for the 2 series. I had this kit installed on my 2018 Audi S3 and it was amazing.
