I bought some Hartage springs because the H&R are unbearable however I noticed since I parted out my G35 I was really starting to mod the X5d (wife's daily driver) this happened before when I had nothing of my own I wanted to modify so I figured I had better get something of my own....so I picked up an X5M I am for sure getting rid of the H&Rs I am not sure if I should put the Hartage springs on the diesel or put the diesel back to stock springs or if I should put the Hartage on the M I am almost scared to put springs on the M after my experience on the diesel I might leave them both stock for now and get some KW coilovers for the M.....everything looks so much better lowered I hate to raise the diesel up and I know the M will look 10x better lowered.

I have the same setup and now my car is super bouncy, still have the stock shocks/struts. My wife wont ride in the truck with me anymore...

Seeing the lack of support this platform has, I either replace everything with KW, replace the front with D2 coilovers and rear shocks with Bilsteins, or use Bilsteins to replace the stock shocks/struts. But I definitely cant be driving it like this for much longer. Stance is perfect imho.

Been wanting to lower the X5 since i brought it for the Mrs as the gap in the front wheel was enough to put your head through After all the useful info on here ended up going for H&R Springs with adjustable rear links.
The car looks and rides much better give it abit firm over humps but no bouncing as others claim. The cars sitting on 20" 333M alloys. How can I upload pics from my phone to share with you all!

Let's bring the thread back to life.
The main reason I want to lower mine is because the front tire camber wear on the outside face.
Tires aren't cheap!

H&R springs and wheel spacers

Hello my X5 looks identcial to your's, same color except I have the M Sport staggered wheels. I am unable to upload a picture for you.
I did the same thing to my 2011 back in 2013, but also was recommended to use the H&R wheel spacers, which they installed.
It looks great but ride has been compromised to more of "sports car" feel. I like it but wife says it's harsh.
The only dilemma I have is that it has been that it's difficult to align, (lowering springs and wheel spacers).
I use the BMW dealer as they load the car with weights. I have had cupping issues on right rear tire as well. I've had it aligned each time after installing new tires. The suspension and alignment are within spec, but I'm on the 3rd set of tires, because of cupping on the right rear??
I've switched from the runflats to Conti Extreme Contact DWS 6. Ride quality is awesome. Have gotten the best wear using these tires, over 25k miles and still lots of tread left.
