  1. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    The E39 sedans had front and rear M-Technik I/II distinctions (S704A, S705A), as well as HD and EE versions. The tourings had Sports+lowered (S227A). Aftermarket manufacturers do not use the M-distinctions, and group replacements into fronts according to engine design (Sachs 556834 for i6...

    Hi Guys ... I have a 2019 BMW 5 Series G30 , I have installed 20" Rims and installed 245/35/20 in the front and 275/20/30 in the rear .

  3. 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 … ).

    Hi i have 60k miles and my front left strut is bad. I want to replace with aftermarket but i have adaptive drive which has electronics bolted on to the side. Can i still use an aftermarket or those are only for non-adaptive drive>?
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    The ride on my 2007 328XI is a little rough and at 82K I am thinking of replacing the shocks. I thought I would reach out and ask for a couple of suggestions. I know shocks need to be replaced in pairs but do you need to replace the rear and front ones at the same time? I may go higher end than...
