Going from height adjustable springs to coilovers

Hi, I'm specifically posting this here because I want folks with track experience. I currently have KW HAS on my '18 M2 but considering an upgrade to coilovers. The reasons are 1. It's not my daily car anymore. 2. I want better cornering and handling on track.

My question is, is it worth the upgrade considering the cost? Would love to hear folks that have experience with both.

Thanks!

What do you want to achieve? (ie better turn in, flatter cornering, changing the balance of the car)

What is your budget?

Maybe try some dedicated track tires first?

What do you want to achieve? Less roll, better turn in.

What is your budget? 2k

Maybe try some dedicated track tires first? That is the plan.

Sounds like some up-rated anti-rollbars is what you are after! Should help with the roll and turn in without ruining the ride.

I have not researched if this bar is any good but Dinan has a good rep.

2K for coilovers is nothing and won't buy you quality.

No question your tires are the current weak point for tracking. Then I reckon it's the suspension yeah. But in the end you'll want to address both, so may as well get coilovers.
