Hey guys,

Those with XI models. I am planning on lowering my XI but I think there are only certain types of suspension you can get. I know KW coilovers are made for the XI but I am looking for other options as well.

If you did lower your XI, what type of suspension do you have on your car?

Thanks !!!

i dont really see the point in getting an XI if ur gonna lower it?
well, i head up to whistler alot and up the local mountains alot so awd would be beneficial. As to lowering it, i want it to look nice once i get my 19s

thats why.

I have a 02 330xi and I just replaced the stock springs with h&R springs. It was a real problem to replace the rear springs but I finally let an install shop do it for $100.00. I will post pictures soon. Also H & R are the only springs.

a basic coilover system consists of adjustable ride height springs and shocks

ie. an H&R coilover system consists of H&R height adjustable springs and H&R shocks (even though some say they're bilsteins) and this comes as a set .

how is the ride height ? is there a gap from the fender to the wheel ? and do you know the part number of H&R spring that you got ? (if it helps.. what colour is it ?)

im very interested in hearing about your setup

btw.. your shocks wont last you a very long time...

And do you know the price Cdn if I were to purchase it here?

you're looking at somewhere in the 2500 CAD price range

H&R also makes a spring for the Xi but it barely makes any difference..

only in a 330Xi application.. but it will work just as fine with a 325Xi

2500 ehh?


no, i dont want just springs. I either want a cupkit but since thats not available, then i might have to get coilovers


But chris from cg motorsports told me to wait till january where H&R's new products come out. And he said they SHOULD have a cupkit for the XI which will save me a ton of money
