I don't have the shockware but I can tell you that the springs change the entire character of the car

Make sure you don't skimp on installers... Having a dealer back you can be a blessing. I never got far enough into CPO to really test the relationship but I'm about 75% confident they wouldn't void me and do my CPO work if push came to shove due to all my business where if you cheaped out on some other Dinan installer then tried to go get CPO work I'm guessing those odds would drop to 50-50.

thanks for the info...I am going with a dealer...seems a tad pricey but I agree it is nice to know it will (should ) be done right...I am a little disapointed in my dealer service tho...with my 08 335xi everything that needed to be repaired/replaced (brakes, clutch, battery, water pump) all took WAY longer than they quoted...i mean days...if a couple cases, I brought the car in early in the AM on a Thursday and they never even looked at it until Monday...THEN they ordered parts...really chapped my ass...I could have brought it in later and not been without the vehicle...anyway rant over thanbks for the input
