Questions Re: Eibach Pro-kit/Bilstein Setup for XI

Sup Guys,

I read some e90 XI forum member's installed Eibach pro-kit's on their car but I can't find the model that fits our car. Do they make them for the XI or is everyone using another version?

How does the Eibach Pro-kit/Bilstein shocks Setup compare to the stock suspension, is it firmer, rougher?

Can someone confirm how much of a drop with the Eibach Pro-kit/Bilstein Setup on an "XI" (not an "I")?

My car recently hit 50k, believe its time to replace the Shocks. I might as well add some eibachs pro's and give it a lil drop.

Thanks in advance

I went from h&r sports blistein to eibach using the same blistein one of the reason i had to change it because i hated how the h&r sports had a rake drop... Now that i had the eibachs.. It does not look as slammed in the rear im using eibach i not for xi

Get the eibachs for the non-xi version of your car. E.g if you have a 335xi get the 335i, 328xi get the 328i etc. They do not make separate xi versions nor different versions for coupe vs sedan etc. SOme vendors will try to list separate version (and charge more for them!) but when you check PN's they are just the non xi.
