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.
omg thats amazing. i see you're from NY. what part, and what dealer?

Yeah, some of the sites have specific kits listed for the xi, but they cant actually be different, can they?

Im going to guess that any bbk kit or rotors will work.

Kit for:- Used on:
335i --- 335xi yes
330i --- 330xi should be a yes
328i --- 328xi front only
325i --- 325xi not sure

I spent hours trying to compare parts for my 328xi on realOEM, calipers bolted on but discs didn't. I figured out a way to make it fit with original BBK parts (I posted this before), Brembo provided no support, just willing to sell me parts for me to experiment and well, I lucked out...

I believe the 335 and 330 uses the same parts for both calipers and rotors (someone chime in if I'm wrong), so they should fit, unless there's a clearence issues with other xDrive equipment (that's what some people have been saying in the forum). pdjafari did his BBK on his 335xi (E92) and I have BBK on my 328xi (E90)

Mine applies to the sedan only though, not sure if the 328xi (E92) is any different than the E90 328xi.

xi and xdrive are the same thing. All of the stuff on my list fits the xdrive coupe or sedan. Kw or h&r for coilovers.

V3 can adjust height, damping, and rebound

Has anyone put an OEM sport suspension(ZSP) on a X? I'd like to see pics.
I know the drop isn't very aggressive but I would like see what it looks like on an X.

you can't put oem sport (ZSP) suspension on an xi car, the front struts won't fit, only the rear struts.

TC Kline is willing to do custom coilovers for the X Drive. We did not discuss cost but the option is there.

Sorry Im a noob! I just bought a new E90 335xi with the sport package. Wanted the i but wife had to have all wheel drive. Aw well, I guess If I throw on a KW suspension kit it will be better than the regular i sport suspension... right? It still bothers me to spend so much money on a "sport" sedan and have to throw even more money into it to actually make it act like one. I plan on taking a "few" trips around the Nurburgring next spring/summer (I only live about 40 minutes away from it!) but I would like to do something about the suspension first. Have any of you guys heard of AC Schnitzer? Its the German version of Dinan, I wonder if they make a suspension for the XI's. I am asuming they don't, I havent seen to many Germans riding around with Xi BMW's, (there are plenty of Audi's though, seems like they have taken over the roads from BMW the past few years out here). I will ask when I go and pick up the new ride on Dec 15th.
