2012 X1 Lift kit

Hi, I have a 2012 X1 28i xDrive. I am currently looking at upgrading the suspension and brakes. I thought about lifting the suspension and the biggest I can find is a 30 mm lift. Not sure if its worth the 1" ground clearance.

Anyone know any other places that sell lifts, or any suggestions on how to get more without compromising too much of the handling?

Apparently Eibach in Europe sells a lift kit available with or without shocks. I'm intrigued by this and if my X1 weren't primarily driven by my wife, I'd go ahead and buy it. There are a number of places in Europe that you can buy from and ship to the US, and at least one tuner shop has a US presence for European parts. I went through this recently to source Eibach lowering springs for my xdrive e90 sedan that are only sold in european and other markets, but not US.

There's a thread that just posted:


It shows a lift kit being installed on an X1.

Not even sure if -40 degrees is cold anymore ?
