Dinan Suspension?

I was just wondering if any xi owners out there have gone with the Dinan supsension upgrade (doesn't matter which stage), and if so, what are their thoughts? I've only seen one member so far who actually had this done to his car.

And yes, I know it's overpriced, and I know their are other options. It seems every other suspension mod is discussed ad naseum on this forum, but there is very little chatter about the Dinan mod. It is really that much of a waste of time?

Allow me to quote myself...

They ask $1357 for:
-Upgraded springs (probably made by H&R): $209.99 online
-Koni Sports (Though FSD might be an even better option, though not manually adjustable): $669.60
-Rear sway (Theirs is only 15.8, H&R is 20mm): $209

That's $1088 for the same or better.
Or you can pay DINAN $1357 plus what, $130/hour labor? For the same (or inferior) products?

Heck, you can get an Eibach + Koni FSD combo for $817 and just add the rear sway. Put the money you save into a front sway, too.

Or, you can get KW V2's for around $1350 and forget the rear sways.

So there are some options. You don't have to shop with us, but honestly, DINAN charges a premium for parts that really aren't the best on the market. $17,000 for a supercharger when VF's $10,000 kit is the same if not better? Come on.

Hope this helps
