Bilstein Shocks for xi?

Anyone hear if Bilstein is releasing shocks for the e92 xi? I've got the H&R spring s already but I'm waiting for a good aftermarket sport shock to put on with it so I don't have to do it twice after the stock shocks fail.

And mods...thanks for creating the xi forum!

This may be a sufficient option for performance. Shocks and springs are a cheaper alternative to coilovers

Still no shocks for the XI models. I'm sure they're still doing some R&D on it, but as of now, you are limited in choices:

-Coilovers (i.e. KW)
-Springs (i.e. H&R)

I believe those bilsteins are the OEM XI shocks. Only reason I say that is b/c when I installed my springs, I noticed that there was a Bilstein stamp on them

wait there are two versions....

BILSTEIN - B6 SPORT (http://www.bilstein.nl/bilstein/b6_sports)

and

BILSTEIN - B8 SPRINT (http://www.bilstein.nl/bilstein/b8_sprint)
"The shortened version represents the ideal pendant to suspension optimisation for nearly all sets of springs."

Is there really a difference and which ones do E9X XI models come with?!

Nice, I just spent a lot of money on V3's and have to wait till next spring to get them installed. I guess that's what I get for being so impatient, lol
