Possible $999 Coilover System with Camber Plates for Xi Application!

First and foremost, I'm not in no shape or form affiliated or employed by Megan Racing. I'm not in this to make any profit. In fact, I'm trying to find a more frugal and highly performing option for the lackluster of options for us Xi owners.

I'm publishing this thread as a form of a petition and/or survey. A few nights ago, I realized that there is a middle market within the Xi community that needs to be taken care of. There's really no viable coilover option that isn't in line with a middle class budget. So I called up an old buddy of mine at Megan Racing and he said let's make it happen. Obviously with two conditions, one is I need to find a stock sport suspension set for him to reverse engineer and two is to rally up a decent number of people that are interested in making the purchase.

Megan Racing's Euro Sport Series of their Coilover Damper Kits is pretty awesome. I actually have it on my E46 M3 at the moment. I love the fact that it works like the higher priced brands, its 32 point adjustability, and the icing on top is that it already comes with camber plates in the front. I got it for $999 and shipping. I'm sure I'm not the only one on this forum that can attest that Megan Racing is a great bang for the buck!

Here's an image of their E92 RWD version:



Specs of the kit:
SPRING RATES:
F: 62mm ID; 160mm length; 7 kg/mm
R: 62mm ID; 210mm length; 11 kg/mm

DAMPER SPECS:
F: 120mm stroke; 280mm length; M2 valving code
R: 130mm stroke; 280mm length; M1 valving code

- 32 Levels of Damper Force Adjustment
- Rubber Upper Mounts
- Rubber Dust Boots
- Adjustable Ride Height
- Aggressive Spring Rates
- Single-Cylinder Design
- Aluminum Brackets

32 Levels of Adjustment:
1-8: Suggested for track use.
9-16: Suggested for mountain/aggressive use.
17-32: Suggested for common street use.

- All coil-over damper kits come with 1-year manufacturer-defect warranty.
- All Hardware is Included

Now imagine us finally having one for us Xi owners!!! Let's get this ball rolling. Let's get our voices heard! Let's get our sponsors of this site also see that they can provide to us another option since they are the same possible sponsors that can carry Megan Racing's new application for us Xi owners!

Add your name below. Don't be shy! And don't worry this isn't a commitment letter either. But if you do want to buy, just state it in parenthesis that you're a serious buyer. Side note: James of Megan Racing said if we can come up with 10 serious buyers on the list, they will definitely get on R&D for this application and have it on the shelves asap.

Add my name to the list. Serious buyer for e90 xi. I just bought kw v1s and it doesn't go low to my liking. I have the original shocks and springs from my xi, no top hats though ,that I can send if needed.

the euro sport series of megan racing is comparable to the mid range of kw v2s and v3s in regards to adjustability. so to answer your question yes it will definitely be lower than v1s.

Major update!

Lambert will be the donor for the stock suspension set and will be mailing it down to James at Megan Racing! Wow! Our dream will be coming true sooner than we think!

You can put me down. My KWs are getting soft in the rear. I've been looking for something new and fresh.
