  1. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi forum, Two years ago, I had a nice 3000+ miles trip in the Z4, from Viña del Mar, Chile to Punta del Este, Uruguay. Of course, we had several nice stops and enjoyed each town we visited in our way to the destination. This year, I'm getting ready for something similar but I'd like to change...
  2. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi guys, I have been searching for this topic but I have no luck. I'm considering to upgrade my suspension with Ground Control Coilover conversion kit. Currently, I'm running Bilstein shockers with factory springs. I dont wanna go full coilover kit because I dont track my car and also most of...
  3. G30 (2017 - Current)
    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 . I have kept the factory shock absorbers and springs and have not made any amendments to the suspension . Now , the rear tires have a slightly bigger gap with...
  4. 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...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi So still in the process of renovation my 2004 545i. I have deducted that my car was/is equipped with the standard struts and my plan is to transition to the sport version from Sachs. However if I do that do I then need to change my springs as well? Reason I ask is that the only part that I...
  6. Suspension and Braking
    Removed from the car at 71k miles, so still some life left, just ended up going with a coilover setup. Been laying in my basement for years, so I just want this stuff gone. Asking $60 or best offer. Prefer local pickup, as I'd really rather not ship this all, but if you're willing to pay...
  7. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Has anybody used H&R springs for an 2008 M-Sport e83? I am looking to replacing shocks and struts with Bilsteins (I prefere Koni but everyone is sold out and Koni only makes them in batches). I am thinking changing 10 year old springs will also help, and I know the rear ones tend to fail. So...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Wanted to know what could be the problem. I noticed the car leans on the front right side of the car. I measured the difference between left and right to be a little over 2 cm. The car rides rough on bumps and the car like to go right (so I hold the steering wheel left) and this is after an...
  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So Im Buying Lowering Springs This Weekend, And I Have Done Hella Research On The Matter And Finally Decided To Go With H&R, But I Can Not Make Up My Mind Between The Race Or Sport Springs... I Really Want The More Slammed Look So I'm Most Likely Going To Go With The Race Springs That Will Drop...

Comes with instructions, 2 spanner wrenches, and allen wrench. I will pay shipping charges. I bought them straight from BC...
  11. X6 F16 (2015 - Current)
    I recently installed a set of KW V3 coil overs on my 2016 X6 50i. Install went smoothly except I've got an "issue" that I want to poll those that have done the same. Whenever I go over bumps slowly or make turns, like onto another street or driveway...or round-a-bout, I get spring...

  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Good day, I'm looking at purchasing an aftermarket suspension for my vehicle. The suspension itself is currently stock, but I have aftermarket rims that are 19" and I was curious, from anyone's experience, if the following set would cause rub, or in what situations there would be rub with this...
  14. Suspension and Braking
    E39 540i H&R Race Springs 50464 w/ Struts/Shocks & Mounts I bought these last winter along with new front Sachs struts (for sport models) and Febi mounts. I put around 8,000 miles on them before I switched to coilovers. The rear shocks/mounts are original to my 2003 540i M-sport (roughly 200k...
  15. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I have a 550i with active suspension. I want to MAINTAIN the factory ride as much as I can, just lowering it a tad since I'm installing 20's. As far as i'm concerned, I got two options: Eibach Pro (.8" drop). Iv'e read someone claimed Eibach's started sagging later. Dinan (.5" drop). My...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi all, Struggling to find good information on lowering springs. I am wanting to acheive similar ride height with lowering springs to the picture i have attached. Does anyone know the best springs? There are so many out there with so many different heights. P.s wheels on car in picture are...

  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey folks, like many threads here, I can also testify that excessive inside rear tyre wear is common on BMWs, and I thought just on the tourers at first (having owned a 528 before and now a 320i touring), but reading these threads it seems saloons suffer too. Anyway, just having some MoT...
