Any pics of BMW Performance Suspension on an E92?

Anyone have pics of an E92 with the BMW Performance Suspension? I'm considering purchasing these because it keeps your warranty in tact. I like the way the rear sits on the E92 currently but I'd like the front to be a bit lower...


I haven't seen any pics of the BMW Perf. Suspension no the E92 yet so if you have them please post them!!!

Don't they use the springs from the factory sport suspension?

you can use the factory sport springs but bmw also has the performance springs, which are "vin specific" when you try to order them:

I'm also curious how much of a drop this will be. I have a 328i E92, no sport package, and want to put this kit on.

Anyone have any specs on how much the car will be lowered?

From prior posts and owners, it'll lower the 335 by only a 1/4in in the front and almost nothing in the rear.

I had the performance suspension installed today. It was a little late by the time I got home to get pictures but measuring the difference the initial drop on the front is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch. The rear was minimal difference but the rear really did not need it. I will check it again in a couple weeks to see if settles any.

I will say the ride seems to have improved. The car originally had Michelin Pilot Sport's on the style 189 sport package wheels. Since adding the new BMW 313 performance wheels with Bridgestone Potenza's the ride seemed to get a little rougher, feeling more of the little bumps. So far the performance suspension seems to have smoothed out the ride noticeably.

im so disappointed i cant get it on the M sport Xdrive. i spoke to Evan at Tischer and asked if i could get just the springs on my car so i could give it that drop. he said that i could but BMW doesnt recommend getting just the springs without the suspension. anyone here anything about this?

Here are a couple quick iPhone pics. The rear looks good. The front could definitely drop a little more but the car is a semi daily drive so I wanted to compromise between ride and appearance. I'll check it again after a couple weeks and see if there is any significant change in the front.

I'll get some better pics this weekend with a good camera and better lighting.

Anyone know if the BMW Performance Suspension will work well on my '09 non-sport E90? I do have the optional 17" wheels with the 224/45 all-seasons. Wondering if the drop will be too much and have the potential for rubbing on big bumps? I do commute a few days a week into NYC.

I think my car handles great now, but this is my first BMW. I test drove a ZSP and didn't notice much difference, but nor did I really push it. Responsiveness feels immediate on my car, and as fast as I want to take a turn I can take it and it doesn't feel like there's much body roll if any.

That said, I do like the lowered look and if there's potential for even better road feel and handling with the Performance Suspension, I'll seriously consider it, long as I know it will be ok with my current wheel/tire setup.

Thanks for any input...

i had a short review posted a few months back.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=303214

Key differences (compared to stock):

better handling
more control
still very comfortable (not harsh over pot holes and speed bumps)

I just got my front spring perches installed on my E92 and it dropped it about half an inch. It looks just about the same drop as if you were to get the BMW performance springs. But I only spent $70 on the parts and $100 for the install. I have an E92 with the ZSP sport package.

Thanks Eric and Tam at Supreme Power! I drove to CA from AZ just to have this done and am happy with the drop!

Let me know if you guys wants pix!
