Birds B3 Suspension UK Group Buy

Dear Fellow Members,

I am sure some of you are already enjoying the benefits of the Birds B3 Suspension set up's in your E9x's. There has been some debate about what suspension to buy in another thread recently within the UK forum. There did seem to be some interest in the B3 setup so I contacted Birds to see if they would look after E90 post members.

With that in mind Kevin Bird has set aside 5 sets of the B3 suspension at a special price for E90 members. This is obviously on a 1st come 1st served basis through this thread.

The costs are:

1) Just supply incl shipping to anywhere in the UK 965
2) Supply and fit at Birds in Langley, Bucks 1,325

As said there are only 5 kits and I am having one, please add your name to the list (cut and paste) so that I can secure the discount for you.

Cheers and I hope this helps some members.

1)Omar

How much discount is this?? Do you know how much they'd do it for if I went for lsd all? In other words the b3.5 package they have?

Discount works out at about 20 - 25% I believe.

I have no idea how much they would charge for LSD with B3 ?

b3

slightly confused.
Just checked the prices online and found the price of the suspension fitted without "e90post discount".
Copied and pasted below:
parts: fitted:
E92 B3 Sport Suspension 335i, 335d, 330i, 330d 977 1,349

So the price listed as group buy discount is only 25 quid off??

Ah just looked into it and see that the prices listed do not include V.A.T.
Can you confirm the price you have been given is including VAT?
Sorry for 21 Questions.

Am pretty sure the Birds website price don't include VAT. Under 1000 for the Birds Kit is a really good price, if I didn't already have it on the car I would be taking part in this GB

This is a very good price. It's normally about 1220 supplied (inc vat) but not fitted.

I am tempted.

Hi,

I can confirm the prices on this group buy INCLUDE vat. The prices on Birds web site DONT include VAT, so at least a 20% saving.

Omar I might be tempted too, near £400 difference in getting it fitted ? Are DW cheaper to fit ? Just deciding which package to buy?

I've got to do this quickly, my Msport springs are god awful and I get a lot of back pain, I'd prefer this over Bilsteins for ride quality, this does provide a drop over standard Msport springs doesn't it? I don't mind not being able to adjust the drop, but I do definitely want a drop...

Also the fitted price I assume include alignment & tracking

DW's labour rate is around half of Birds, but they are in Stockport, so the best place to use may depend on where you are located.

Hi

This does not include tracking or alignment. The kit does give the same drop as Eibach pro kit springs I believe. So 10-15mm.

As Matt says , install is dependant on where you live. I live near Birds so will get them to fit.

I would suggest a KDS alignment after 2-3 weeks if you are lowering the car once it has settled.

Okay Omar, thanks, I'll check with Munich Legends (Indy close to me, anyone use them ??) and see what they've got to say about installing it for me, I'll get back to you...
