lowering X6///M?

just recently purchased a X6M and was considering dropping it a tad bit. i did lower my M6 and dont really care to much for the ride. (a bit bouncy) i used H&R springs. i would like to know if anyone has done this and what they used and ride quality... also looking to change out rims as well for 22" or 23" hamann.....

thank you

If you look at other threads on here, H&r have been known to give a bouncy ride on the M's so I'd recommend going another route. Coilovers are the best option but idk if you'd want to pay that much for a drop if you dont care for the added handling

I believe the only options are Dinan, H&R, and KW V3

not yet, as soon as winter ends I'm installing them at my dealership. ANother member Jess///M on here has them installed and is really happy with it, if your not trying to slam it, dinan might be a good option

So true! I really love the Dinan suspension look and feel. For me, it's the perfect drop for the X6. Had my BMW dealer do the work and have had zero issues. Highly recommend Dinan.

Does anyone have pictures of what's included in this Dinan kit?

http://www.dinancars.com/shop/D190-7...it.aspx#page=1

"CNC machined 6061-T6 black anodized aluminum front and rear shock mounts relocate the mounting point to keep the same amount of travel as the stock suspension for improved ride quality and performance"


It sounds like there is more to this than the H&R springs/links. Very curious to see what the complete kit looks like and the installation instructions.

Sounds like a good balance between the H&R and the full KW coilovers.
