Why Lowering Perches Dont Fit Xi

have verified why the XI lowering perches will not work. It all comes down to the strut tophat . Its a different piece than what comes on the any I suspension setup . If you buy a different mounting tophat for any other 3 series than a XI version it will work . SO to use the lowering perches you just need to purchase the I suspension Tophat and it should work unless they actually changed the mounting holes on the actual car well it will never work unless each pice is heavily modified . realoem has them for $65 each side

ALL I series cars
