I'm considering this suspension also. Any info would be appreciated.

They are on sale now but I thought it was more than just springs ? I thought it was shocks and struts too ?

Would not recommend because the drop is too minimal and too $$

I just installed the KW v 3 coilovers on my M and it's a new truck!!

It will always ride stiffer when springs not matched to shock.

If you were to use springs use the HR springs ( the less aggressive drop )

I thought about H&R also but Dinan's kit includes front and rear shock mounts that keep the factory suspension travel. That might be the deciding factor for me. The roads in my area suck.

Dinan is $$$. I like how a member with white X5M lowered with H&R kit. See post 25 onwards in this thread --> http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...et-wheels.html
