BMW Performance Suspension Kit Question

Link: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=5707

Has anyone tried this? is this a lowering kit? just only springs? How low does it get and is it adjustable? ride quality...

I am looking at it, but for what car is it? I thought it was just sport suspension, but the description says otherwise.

Might want to pm evan@Tischer, he always responds quickly.

i think thats for the e90. I actually pm'ed tischer if it fits for the e92 but he said it wouldnt fit. A few months ago I saw 2 brochures flying around in this forum:

http://www.bmwinformation.co.uk/1_BM...4/digi-pdf.pdf

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...97&postcount=1


i'm still waiting for more info about them, and I believe no one has them installed on a E92 yet. But if its like a stage 2 susp setup for the right price, i'll def. buy it when it comes out.

they do hav the performance package for the e92. i cant speak for tischer, but i went in to buy an e92, they were willing to sell me this e92 w/ the bmw performance suspension and it had like the strut bar and somethin else. but ne wayz, they were gonna sell it to me and i turned it down cuz the car didn't hav CA. so all in all, there is a performance sus for e92, i guess its just not that easy to find. it looks nice tho, but not kw nice

i honestly dont remember the price they were gonna give me, but the 335i e92 was loaded (but didn't hav CA) and it had optional style 179 wheels on there that they said they'd take off and put bak the zsp wheels and they'd sell the car like 700 over invoice as if they sellin it to me not regarding the upgrades at all. and i still didn't take it lol. sorry had to hav CA

nah, it wasn't that low, noticeable, but not that low. i wouldn't be able to tell ya really, i didn't measure the gaps

Sold as a kit. Dan@UnitedBMW from www.1addicts.com was able to take a pic of a test kit he finally got:



Remember this specific kit is for the E82/E88s. I havent seen this kit for the E9x yet but I bet it should be available soon. (i hope!)

So what does the kit for the e90 look like? Here's the description on bmwna website:

===================
Performance Suspension

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
With a tighter, sportier feeling and lower suspension setting of 15mm in comparison with series-production vehicles, the inclusion of a BMW Performance control arm with stiffer bushings gives your 3 Series an almost instinctual feel for the road. With adjusted spring rates and bushings, roll is drastically reduced, creating cat-like quickness, increased responsiveness, and stunning agility. Flexing with the motion of your vehicle around even the tightest curves, a BMW Performance control arm means athletic handling, faster turn-ins, and a totally immediate and much more intense reaction to the tarmac. It delivers a perfect compromise between racing car performance and driving comfort. (PN: 33 50 0 429 574)


$695.00

is the sports package considered series-production, or is it 15mm compared to a non sport package?

I seriously doubt it would be lower than race springs. Maybe only slightly lower than the ZSP spring/shock combo.
