Thanks!
The car was retired from my stable 5 months later. During that time it was great. I'm likely to repurchase a Dinan suspension for my current E92.

Can you tell me, after installing Dinan stage 2:

- How does the ride quality compared to non-sport e90/92?
- How does the handling compare to non-sport e90/92?

I'm actually less concerned about the handling. It's impossible for me to go over 35mph in the city without running over an ipod jogger. The harsh ride is starting to piss me off - had dealer look over the shocked and they said it was fine, I've got 32k miles now.
The Dinan Stage 2 suspension was superior to the original non-sport e90 suspension that came on my 07 335xi in terms of ride quality and handling.

Compared to my current 09 E92 335i sport suspension, I would definitely say that it is superior to it in terms of handling, without question.

I had stage 3 and it was night and day in my 335i xdrive [2009]

Still think you might be better buying m3 bits instead [not sure if its possible on the awd tho]
