I had the UUC rear sway bar installed. They had to drop the subframe.

On all suspension parts the warranty is voided. I assume dinan has a warranty. But the dinan setup is just springs/shocks on the rear and springs on the front if I remember correctly. Its way way overpriced for a bad setup.

For that price with dinan just go with coilovers for $1300 instead.

BMW is reportedly coming out with some suspension mods as well as other mods imminently. My dealer just received an email about this very topic.

Some of the current coilovers, like H&R, ride far too stiff for a dd, imo. Add $1,300 (H&R)for parts plus $500-$600 for labor. VW's are more, right? Dinan's product may be typically Dinan overpriced, but I'd rather go with their $1000 set up, plus labor, (frt springs, rear springs and shocks) than the other higher priced options and retain a warranty. Their base set up is fine, imo.

If BMW releases something, that's the route I'll likely take.

hey prowess... just so you know I was told the rear struts are the same on all e90/e92's but the xi's front struts are longer so thats why the other ones for the "i" don't fit.

They have a different mounting mechanism. The i is flat but the xi has rounded edges.

Small update and question.

BBK kits should work fine with xi, right? All the bbks need is a proper size rim? xi should have nothing to do with it, correct?

Why isnt this a sticky yet?
