This modification may have produced a bit of the uncertain feeling I get when I push the car around decent bends in the road. But, it's not bad handling by any means. The suspension is what I'll call more pliable and better able to handle most road conditions.

Looks like dampers were changed. REALOEM notes Bilstein as strut supplier for N54 equipped 335i; Sachs for N55.

Guessing Koni had made an embarrassing impression.

BMW is good about refinement - they move on issues with the velocity o'turbocharged snails, eventually coming to a conclusion.
