Dinan Stage 1 Suspension - now available

check it out: www.dinanbmw.com Just springs and shocks now, I'll bet their sway bars come in for a Stage 2 soon. Pricing seems not too bad.

I saw that yesterday, but did you notice the only thing unique is their springs? The other components (struts and dampers) are Koni.

Exactly Michael! Better to just buy Koni dampers and H&R springs for well under one grand! That's what I did!

they don't make their own springs either. they're sourced from a major spring manufacturer, and made to their specs. also, on past cars, they don't lower the car much.

Dinan is a joke you could get a set of coils installed for that price.

I wholeheartedly agree. If a company sells chewing gum for 5 bucks, it's obvious what their philosophy is on pricing. I would be less apt to pay anything for a product from that company, knowing that I'm getting ripped.

Sounds like $1400 for new performance springs/shocks installed is too much? What is more realistic?

But you also must keep in mind adding Dinan parts does not void your warranty; whereas any part(s) directly affected by adding aftermarket springs, etc. will void the warranty on those parts.
