I actually bought replacement fork coils for my F8 from Race Tech, here in California. Less than 1/4 the price and excellent results!!! The stock spring rate for F8 fork coils I believe is .44, and the coils from Race Tech are .95.... So double. Granted, you have to spend way more money if you want adjustable preload. I laid down the $120 (at the time, I believe they are $150 now) and am very pleased with the difference the RT coils have provided over the stock, mushy front end. Also, RT states that you have to buy their fork spring guide kit for an additional $50 - not necessarily the case. I talked to a tech guy at RT, and he gave me the lowdown. RT coils are a hair smaller in diameter, so all you have to do is shave 1.6mm off of the OD of the stock spring guides... From 29.6 to 28mm. Took me longer to set up up my friends lathe than to cut.

Here is a link to Race Tech...

Oh, and I definitely do plan on investing in a GPR stabilizer kit in the near future as well... San Diego BMW has them on the shelf for $495.
