Thank you, now I'm confused, because some shops tells me 4 hours for the lowering springs and some shops tells me 8 hours? I'm guessing it would be somewhere between 4 and 8 hours?

It was about the same time as the install for a set of lowering springs

What's the cost on these installed? Spring rates?

Can you share more comments on the ride quality (at different EDC modes if possible)? Appreciate it.

it's done! Sleeve Kit is installed. On my M6. The car is still at the dealer for minor installation damage removal. Got the possibility to drive the car a few minutes and what I could tell is, that the ride is less bumpy in compare to H&R springs. More impressions and experiences regarding high speed runs will follow!

Does anyone has experiences with the settle after a few hundred miles? My H&Rs settle a little bit after run in.

Review 1:

Could only drive 30 mls, but the ride feels more responsive and and absolutely not bouncy in compare to the H&Rs. I let the dealer lower my M6 exact the same like the H&Rs.

I'm glad to go the way to KW sleeve Kit.
Next try will be high speed runs on autobahn, hope they are as much stable and confortable than in town today.

Any ideas if the sleeve over kit would fit an f10 550i?

How much lower is it from H&R on a car with no CP?
