IIRC MP-HAS was 5 hours of install + alignment on the F8X.

"Port installed" items are usually included in the local market options list and include installation cost. If it's not in the "options list", I doubt you'll be able to get it "port installed".

That's great way of doing it if you're leasing, significantly reduces the MP-HAS hardware and install cost of ownership as they are residualized . Interesting that BMW financing allows it though...

The higher the sticker the more money being lent, the more money being lent the more interest charged I suppose. Same reason they allow you to roll the excess mileage $$$ from a previous lease into your next lease.

And I can't wait to hear your assessment. I think it's gonna be a great car as usual. I hope you'll have both for a bit, like you did your 718, so that we can get a true comparison.

Wondering if anyone is aware of release options such as MP coilovers/HAS that could be port or dealer installed?

///AVM
Congrats on your build! Did you get any updates from your SA on MP coilover/HAS? BTW I will be coming from a M2C as well.

Also interested in updates. I wish they would offer camber plates as well. Hopefully somebody develops those soon.
