Bump and rebound are at the settings James@BW suggests for track.

My only impressions are based on my drive home from the shop - I'm travelling now and won't drive the car again until I head to the track on Monday morning. But my quick reaction is that this is a very capable setup. Even at track settings, the car is reasonably comfortable on the street. Definitely stiff, but handles big bumps and road imperfections with no drama - absorbs the shock and is ready for the next one. Drove a couple of familiar highway exchanges and was very impressed with how planted and level the car stays. There's no brake dive. Steering inputs feel much sharper. I'll be playing with settings at the track on Monday and see how things go.
Glad to hear it! As always, feel free to contact us or me directly as you dial them in. I have several hundred track hours specifically on JRZ RS dampers on BMWs and we can solve any handling issues pretty quickly.

Enjoy the new setup!
