Has anyone installed coilovers?

To improve ride/handling?

Hesitant to buy a pre-2007 because of the supposed stiff ride. This will be my daily driver - after all.

But the low prices of a 2006 could justify spending a few...

Good to know. Tire Rack said 255-50-19 was the 19" size?

And 275 isn't monster, I had 305's on my Z06. :thumbup:

But knowing that's the correct OEM size, I'll probably go with 245/45/19 or...

Well, I haven't bought the X3 yet. Just seeing my options on wheels and the like.

I would probably go 275-40-19 to match the stock diameter.

19x9.5 at 45 offset

at all 4 corners?

Alternative would be 19x8.5 at 40 offset, but I'd like to go wider.

It's funny, I like the steering in the X3's better than my friend's new 335i.

They made the steering in that car very light and numb. Maybe it's because he has the adaptive steering?

2005 and 2007 differences?

So, what are the real differences between these cars? I know the styling differences, but what about mechanically? I can't find a comprehensive list of all the exact changes over the years.
