Was it costly? I'll call my dealer in the morning. Warranty issue?

^Curious as well. If I had to guess I would say an alignment machine?

Not sure exactly what alignment machine they use (but that is what's going on in the picture), but it's a quad-rack 12,000 lb lift.

Here is another angle. Will go check my alignment sheet to see if it has the machine info. ** Edit - no machine info on the alignment sheet.

This could be necessary because of 'active steering'.

The things mounted to the wheels are for alignment. It's a laser alignment machine.

Hey guys, I've also just installed the BMW Performance Suspension. Here is the thread if you want to check out my review with pics.

What will the ride drop be front and rear? BMW says the drop is 25mm (0.98 inch) but i'm guessing front will drop more than rear. Am i correct?

am considering the perf suspension, is your car an se, my dealer told me the perf sus is halfway between the se and the m sport suspension but ive also read its 34% stiffer than the sport. the se is apparently not as stiff as the sport so now im a bit confused.

What is 'se'? Also, as far as I know, there is no M Sport suspension available, unless they're using the terms interchangeably (M Sport and Performance Suspension). The only BMW upgrade I could find for the 3 series is the BMW Performance Suspension.

That picture is a before shot. Check my garage for pics after the upgrade.

I don't know what se is...? I believe there are 3 options: stock(sports), M, BMW Performance. The last one should produce the lowest ride, but with greater comfort then M.

in the uk we have stock suspension but the 335i and 335d e92 come as se or m sport spec and sport suspension that is an option on the other engine sizes. some say the two have the same suspension but i spoke to my friend who works for bmw and he said the suspension part numbers are not the same.

hey scott i also had my rear end kick out also so i added the m3 swaybar, still no change, installed all the m3 arms and toe links still no change, tried higher tire pressure helped some. But the biggest difference was felt when i upgraded the subframe bushings. im upgrading the diff bushings soon also. I dont think you can eliminate the rear coming out totally especially with the power youre making.

Many Moons - I agree Dinan may be a little better, but for a car I drive a couple days a week and don't track I can't see paying another $1000 for stage 2 that probably just includes the M3 front sway at 2.5 times the cost of ordering it directly from tischer.

I just want to tighten things up a little. Next mod will be M3 rear guide rods for about $350. They should make a big difference in going straight at launch and not having the rear end kick out as much. They are less than an hour install time so it seems like a no brainer addition.

I installed the performance suspension on my 135i. I dont know if its the same on the e90 but it was the best upgrade I did to that car. Short shifter being second. Really this is how the car should have come from the factory. Perfect drop (Mine went down ~0.8") and the perfect combination of stiffness and softness for the street. Since it was my daily driver I didn't want M3 harshness, but I didn't want the stock ZSP bounciness either. This kit was a perfect middle ground. Combined with non-runflats it was driving bliss.
