My MW e92 msport with SF-71s

Picked up my mineral white e92 335 msport about a month ago and finally got the Alufelgen SF-71s put on(thank you Alan @ **********s for the hookup). I know being an xDrive she is in desperate need of a drop, looking at the KW V1s for the next purchase. Coming from a 328 coupe this car is a blast to drive. Some people have asked about the bamboo wood so I attached a couple pics of the inside.

Thanks again for your order/support on the Alufelgen SF-71 wheels. It definitely does look great on the E92 LCI body and gives the car a more aggressive stance. The best thing about this setup is how concave the wheels are in both the front and in the rear. Let me know when you're ready to work on the suspension on the XI and you'll be taken care of sir!

There aren't really that many choices available for the XI aka X-drive models. One of the most popular systems is the KW V1 XI. The answer is simple; you get what you pay for when it comes to vehicle suspension. As such a crucial component of your vehicle, suspension is definitely something you do not want to cheap out on. A coilover suspension basically gives you a matched lowering spring and shock absorber combination with the added benefit of adjustable ride height and spring rates through a moveable spring perch or perches. Coilovers are to your car's advantage by reducing unsprung mass, increasing suspension travel, and allowing the car to be corner balanced.

The KW V1 XI will give you the ability to adjust the height of the car with pre-set damping from the engineers at KW suspension. This is going to be perfect for a everyday street driven vehicle and will definitely stiffen up the ride. Here's a before and after pics of the KW V1 XI on stock 18"s for you to check out (pics courtesy of LMBX@e90post).
