440i xdrive with M-Adaptive Suspension - Can I lower it?

Hi there,
just introduced my new 440i on another thread. Been searching this forum and can't seem to find the right answer about the suspension.

I have the M-Sport w/ Adaptive Suspension - but the car is an x-drive model. (It's what they had on the lot and I got a steal of a deal). In Florida I have no need for x-drive and feel that it rides very high.

I looked at Dinan springs, seems affordable. Says it works with Adaptive Suspension. Anyone have experience with this setup? How much did it cost you all in to buy and install? I don't think it's DIY for me.

Does anyone have ride height measurements from RWD coupe vs AWD? and then with msport w/ adaptive?

THANKS GUYS!!

I have a 340i xdrive with Dinan springs and swaybars, no issue to report except it handles like a BMW should handle.

It's worth it.

You can put lower springs on the adaptive suspension. You'll probably want to get shorter bump stops though (grab a set of the F8x M3/4 ones).

Don't remember the price for spring, bump stops and sways but you can check on Dinan's site.
Independent shop charged me 8 hours so $800cdn for install although it took them 10 hours to do the job.
