    I want to run my 2004 325i Sedan Sport w/SMG in F Street for fun. If I replace my stock struts/springs with a Koni Sport Damper Set & Springs (1140 4841) will it be F Street legal? The Koni set has the Koni Sport struts/shocks and H&R Sport springs that lowers front 35mm and rear 10mm. If not SCCA F Street legal, any suggestions? Running 235/40R17 Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Specs with stock swaybars.

    No, you cannot replace the springs in Street class. You would end up in Street Touring, so STX for your car. Both FS & STX are very tough classes for your car, but you said "for fun" so you probably already realize that. STX allows for several other mods that you may ultimately want to do, like even stiffer springs, up to 9" wide wheels, and up to 265mm wide tires.

    The 325i is actually much better suited to STX than FS as the higher powered BMW's - the 1/335's and M3's class up to STU in Street Touring rather than STX while both compete in FS in Street.

    I would also budget in a set of camber plates. It's a minimal investment and will really help your camber-challenged car and is allowed in STX.
