  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Most of you have thought about lowering your car to get rid of that goofy wheel gap and improve handling. In my case my car was too low for the wider than stock esr wheels I have on my car and I had to buy different springs to correct the rubbing issue. This video shows you exactly what parts I...
  2. Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Hey! First time poster here so I’m sorry if this isn’t the right place to ask. I just received a Bilstein B12 Pro Kit for my 2013 X3, but it didn’t come with bump stops or dust boots. I’ve read that the Bilstein shocks in the front have an internal bump stop, but can I use OE spec for the...

    Hi all! Apologies if there is another thread out there that would shed some light, but I've searched and not coming up with much. Hoping one of you experts can provide some input! :thumbup: 2007 BMW 335i, N54, 6MT, RWD, ~160k miles 18" wheels. Don't have runflat tires Front: Michelin Pilot...
  4. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Just looking for experiences with Bilstein B8 shocks in the X1 F48. I am very familiar with Bilsteins and know how firm they are. I just want opinions from those who have them on their F48s in terms of stiffness and ride comfort. Thanks
  5. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I have a 2011 X5 35i and looking to upgrade all 4 suspensions/springs. I am considering Bilstein and Eibach shock/spring combination and I am seeing this kit: https://www.bimmerworld.com/Suspension-Steering/Suspension-Packages/Bilstein-B12-Pro-Kit-Front-and-Rear-46-181220.html. Honestly, I am...

  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    It looks like it’s time for new dampers on my 550i (E61). I can save a bit of money by buying Bilstein (“OEM”) dampers for the front, though the “OEM” dampers my local specialist found for the rear are a brand I don’t know (and don’t remember, though it starts with a C or K … ). I’ve had good...
  8. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    OK so I purchased used front strut/hub complete assemblies from an auto recycler. $75 each with Bilsteins (not sure of which model inserts) so potentially a good deal and upgrade from the totally shot originals (160K miles!). Much stiffer, of course - but the suspension is now raised so that the...
  9. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I'm replacing my rear suspension with Bilstein B8 shocks and Eibach Pro Kit springs but I'm not sure about the correct bump stops to use. The shocks didn't come with any bump stops so I ordered a set of OEM ones that I'm pretty sure are far too large - they prevent over 50% of the travel...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've got a 528i with a factory Sports suspension. Mechanics said front struts and springs are shot. I was considering a Bilstein HD with Powerflex bumpstops. My issue, I don't want to go any lower. I'm already less than 6 inches from the ground! What's the Bilstein equivalent to the OEM Sports...
  11. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi guys, any of you guys had the Bilstein B12 Sportsline kit installed on an M sports F30? I would love to see the drop. I am considering it but have no idea how low it will drop. Thank you!

  13. Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    I have 2 questions that I hope you would be so kind as to share your expertise and experience. I'm working on the rears now. Actually have installed one side already...taking a break..BUT..I think I screwed up by not compressing the blue spring before putting the top mount on...I put my body...
  14. Suspension and Braking
    Bimmerfest, I have a set of Bilstein B8 shocks for sale that came off of a 2014 F30. They will fit the F30/32, and possibly the F33 as well. The shocks have about 4000 miles on them. I'm asking $600 for the set. They are in excellent condition. Shoot me a P/M if you're interested. I'm...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I happen to be lowering my 335xi soon and want to know what you guys think about this. I am fairly new to this, so some feedback would be great. So I have done ALOT of research and even though sometimes I get conflicting reports, this is the general agreement for what I found to be the best...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Installed Bilstein sport shocks and H&R sport coils onto my 2001 330i last week and so far everything works fine, but I was a bit concerned about the amount of travel on the shocks. The springs lowered the car about an inch and a half in the front, which still gives plenty of clearance for the...

  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello I have been doing some research on shocks since I have the 2006 530 with 125k miles and I am guessing original shocks, the car is like a bus and lots of wheel play on the highway. I dont want to lower the car or raise it, sticking with stock rims for now, but I would like to stiffen it...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all, I have done a lot of researching here - I am trying to install Bilsteins and a set of Pedders sports ryder springs in a 1996 535i (I believe suspension setup is same as a 540i) Have come across one part that I haven't seen on any other write-ups or photos of peoples posts! It is like a...
