Thanks for posting!
Thank you for the good words. The rears are 265/30. Fronts are 235/35. The sidewalls look normal. The SF-71 was an easy choice. Classic look. Proper color.

+1 to that - I never really understood what bad was because I came from an SUV and I am pretty sure my 08 MDX had better handling and less body roll thatn my 08 335xi lol....clearly an exaggeration but still - need a decent solution soon - I am certain ANY upgraded suspension will beat whatever is came stock on mine!

What's the deal with FK? I never hear about these as a viable option for XI's:

Or what about the HRs?:

yeah they do, but when your that low you have to make the coils tight so you dont rub.

I though I read they fit as well, looking agaiin I believe you are right. For the same warranty then, are megans worth it for the feature set vs the kw v1's or the HR's???? in that price range?

KW v1
Love the ride, maybe a bit too soft in the rear.
Height? I'm 1/4" away from all the way down, can't go any lower since it will bottom out theshock and no suspension travel at all.
I think this is the lowest an XI can get...
