They bolt right in, as the E9x is an M3 without M3 suspension & drivetrain parts; engine.

Also, as you've an '07, you'll hugely benefit from Koni FSD and M3 Rear Subframe bushings install. Ditto LSD.

I need new lower control arms on my 2012 X5. What should I expect to pay to have this service done, parts and labor, at a reputable local Bimmer shop (non dealer)?
