Nice! How do you find the ride? My original suspension is on its last legs so I will be upgrading to a coilover system probably next summer. This one is the one I've been looking at pretty hard but I just dropped some coin on a major service and new tires.

Ride is very similar to stock. It feels more planted at higher speeds and slightly more firm at lower speeds. Very satisfied with it. I think when I ditch my runflats for PSS' it will get even better. Just waiting on my wheels to ship.

Send a PM to Tiago@VRSF, cheaper than most strut and spring combos.

Great post, I'm looking to buy my coilovers today, just looking for a good price. 866.00 is lowest I've seen so far for my xdrive. But this post confirmed my choice in the ST's

I think they may have rebates going on now too. Check the ST site. $866 is about what I paid, then I got a $100 rebate on top of that. It was a steal really.

Yes they are for swaybars but some Coilover kits come with adjustable endlinks for when you lower the car

This is front and rear spun all the way down on 18s, 19s would fill it in even better

How low can we go with XI's???

stephen335xi and blau808, Jeff@TopGearSolutions you can chime in also... I'm curious what your ride height is? Measuring from fender to bottom of rim, front and rear. I also have the same setup, ST V1 Coilovers, 18's 2006 325XI, I'm measuring 21.5" FT / 21.375 RR. Jeff, if you could chime in now, how low can I run these on the XI, with the known challenges the XI create? And am I measuring correctly.
