gixman,

I'm still looking into the xi models. Dinan claims their monoballs fit the 2008-2010 528xi, which means ours would fit as well. I think other xi models would require a different parts be...

I'm assuming nigel_1981 is referring to the price of our monoballs already installed into the new control arms.

I'll need to see what we can get the arms for and report back.

Thanks,
