Question Sway bar for 2007 E90 335xi

Hi All,

Thanks in advance.

Front or rear?

Only one option for front: uuc.

I would recommend going m3 rear sway bar upgrade (the smaller one) only if you have wider than stock high performance tires. I have this setup with Michelin pss and love it. Most understeer is gone and the car is much more point and shoot and is very stable at high speeds.

AFAIK, m3 sway bar is not compatible with xdrive, right ? I have e92 m3 rims and good year eagle f1 asymmetric 2

Do you still recommend m3 sway bar or ?
Appreciated mate.

Rear bar is compatible, front is not. Go with the 22.5mm bar from the e90/e92 m3.

If you were to get adjustable endlinks then do you think the m3 front bar will work ?

I have the ECS tuning branded front and rear sway bars (based on the specs, they appear to have been made by Eibach) - I am quite happy with them. You can get both for about the price of just the BMW M3 front sway bar. I have RWD though so double check with ECS whether they will work for Xdrive.

Here is a good comparison:

I just found out that KW also offers sway bars for 335xi.
I am ordering a set because i think KW has great products.
They are also cheaper than the UUC.

Front 28mm
Rear 19mm (2 way adjustable)

Partnumber: 68515003

Have UUC front and rear sway bars. Very nice upgrade and was able to negotiate the price with UUC directly over the phone when I ordered. Received them in a few days.

The sway bar is for a e90 N54 335xi. I was in contact with KW Germany who informed me about it.
Its not on their site but they do have it. I have to wait 4-6 weeks.

In Europe front and rear costs 350 Euros.
I dont know if you can only get the front one.
I ordered both the have the correct balance.
I have already got the KW V3 so that should work together.

I think you have to preorder them.
I contacted the KW headquarter in Germany first. Maybe you should contact KW USA.
I dont know all the detail i just wanted to let you guys know that there is an other option besides UUC.

Have you gone through the xDrive suspension thread yet? It covers which sway bars to get.

We've covered it here. There is only one front, aftermarket xdrive option available here in the states (UUC). Looks like potentially another one in the EU, but nothing confirmed yet, pricing, etc.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on the UUC for the X1, but I'd love to buy from a company that's a little more reputable in the customer service department. UUC has struggled so much...
