Smile Dinan Stage 1 Suspension Teaser

Just picked her up this morning after a few days of surgery... Needs 1,000 miles to break in, more pics to follow in the next few days...

Good job spending a stupid amount of money on something not worth it.

Thanks for the constructive criticism. If it doesn't suit you then that's your issue not mine. It's made a markedly improved difference in the ride and handling of my car. I'm happy with it, but then again who am I to know any better from your infinite wisdom.

Glad you are happy with it. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to bash your purchase. It actually took longer than I expected. Do you have any pics to show ride height?

It's not baller, it's a ripoff. You can get the same H&R springs and Koni struts for half the price without the Dinan badging.

x2. For nearly the same price, you can get KW V3s.

If you're doing two or more things to a car, sure post a teaser but what do I know.

Anyways, three barfs up

Thank you! Also, to all your critics out there, I didn't want to blow my warranty and have all sorts of issues with the hard ass dealers up here so Dinan is supported by local BMW dealer. Therefore its warrantied and I'm not always stuck with the bill should something go wrong (which it won't).

LOL, suspension components will not violate a warranty... A BMW dealership would have a hard time blaming an engine failure on a suspension component...

Nonetheless, glad you got some shweet suspension upgrade. I don't knock dinan suspension as I do their engine performance, haha.

I don't have any pics yet, but they're coming very soon. The ride height is still settling as I've only driven it about 15 miles or so since picking up the car. The ride is significantly better - it'll get a workout this weekend up in the mountains for a cruise.

Eh I'm still overcautious - it's a new car I just don't need the stress of anything extraneous. But thank you overall. I've also got my E36 Dinan Stage 3 M3 convertible - that car's been a real peach. Solid install and no issues aside from a crapped out fan clutch.
