Who has done lowering springs (especially AC Shnitzer)???

I want to lower my X5 2010 4.8 on AC Shnitzer from the dealer. I think these springs will look and feel better then stock has anyone made lowering springs for E70?

How is the ride and handling of the car after lowering?

Really? I'd predict a worse ride....

Do you have adaptive drive or 3rd row seating, per chance?

Cool

Look at an earlier thread I think from around january. A gentleman put HR springs on his x5 with good results and he has pictures posted. That is on my to do list.

I have driven an X5 with and without AD and now I have KW V3 on my x5. I would say that KW can give big part of adaptive drive feeling on non AD cars.
