I do not belive there is a coil over that fits the x drive cars for $1K! I have the KW and they look and perform amazing, but you get what you pay for..

KW v3 is the only (correct) way to go for lowering our XI cars. I can't say enough good things about them. Mine were a tad under $2200 shipped and worth every penny.

Mein Auto: BMW 535i + 535XI wagon
+1. Worth every penny, absolutely transforms the car.
I have both an Xdrive and a RWD 535, and the difference is huge. The Xdrive sucks big fluffy you-know-whats compared to my sedan which has H&R lowering springs and Konis. It's like a Barcalounger vs a sports car. I will be addressing the problem once I get through some other upgrades. KW V3s.
It's a good chunk of change including install, but the car deserves it. Besides I have tuned it to 400 hp, so it badly needs an improvement in ride control so the power is balanced with the suspension.
