    Was fortunate enough to meet up with a fellow M2 owner/fettler a couple of weekends ago.

    We swapped cars so had an all-to-brief stint at the wheel of his cracking BSM M2 - fettled by Litchfield c/w AST c/overs - wearing 19" MPSC2's 245/265 F&R, spacers - 5mm F&R IIRC - plus F87CS ePAS and M4GTS MDM coded in.

    My AW M2 DCT - no coding or spacers, MP c/overs at OEM specs + OEM MPSS 245/265 tyres and OEM -30min camber correction hubs.

    My thoughts on AST v MP coilovers - as per thread on FB:-

    I liked AST setup although felt softer than my MP coils even tho The AST car was running 19” MPSC2’s, stiffer than MPSS’s and had F87CS ePAS coded in.

    Handling / road manners - too brief a drive to say.

    IMHO - despite car having F87Comp or CS ePAS coded in - steering feel on mine (19” OE MPSS with MP coils and -30min camber correction hubs) was “meatier”. Rapid see-saw L&R of the steering wheel - repeated a few times - AST car’s helm not as responsive as mine.
