kw v1 on xi sedan still a work in progress

Installed some kw v1's on my e90xi yesterday. Install wasn't complicated but it was time consuming. It helps having a buddy who likes to work on cars. Fronts are almost all the way down. The rears were little too low so we raised it up. Dont remeber exactly how much.


The rears were pretty low so we raised it, what a pain. Will post better pictures later today.

Looking to do the same to my xDrive, i'm kinda worried though when it snows if I will have problems. I keep going back and forth on lowing or not.

This is a killer combo. I have wanted those wheels for my 335xi and the drop gives it a tough stance. Nice work!

Thanks guys! It took us 7 hours from rolling into the garage untill we were finally finished. We took our time, killed a 12 pack, and had some lunch. The rear took up alot of time because of the control arm. We removed it twice. I drove it around the blocks a few times after the intial install, then we went adjusting the ride hieght.
