Eibach Springs on X-Drive

I'm about to pull the trigger on Eibach springs for my 550 X-Drive... but before I do I want to confirm with you guys that the Eibachs are currently the springs that lower the 550 X DRIVE the LOWEST... since H&R doesnt make any springs for the XDRIVE cars yet....

Also who sells Eibachs? Eibach website has 550/535 but it says EXCLUDING AWD application...




Thanks in advance!!!

I've been looking for springs for xdrive as well, it doesnt appear to be available officially

I do recall reading a member here who installed the non xdrive h&r springs on his 535 xdrive successfully. I'm not sure if I'm ready to go that route as our xdrive is substantially heavier than the non xdrive models which means premature shock wear.

^I'm going to Turner Motorsport in Amesbury, MA for my install next month. I'm driving almost 2 hours out of my way, all the shops here have never done a F10 and are trying to charge $700+ for install!

I'd definitely look into them since you are decently close, and while you wait check out some of their E92 GT cars.

Edit: Maybe if we go together we'll get a decent deal? PM me if you guys would like.

Did you ended up with H&R? I only heard great things about ACS, can't say the same for H&R. If you want lowest ride possible, get coilovers. Take it from the guys who's done this before, do it right the first time.

There aren't any coilovers available for the xDrive models.

I believe KW will have a set out this summer. They have coilovers for the e92 xDrives, but still testing on the F10 AWD. I would wait for it.

Hartge has 30mm lowering kit

Hartge has 30mm lowering kit. Hartge lowering kit I had on my previous Bmw `is. and have been pleased with the Hartge. The kit consists of new springs front and rear lowering electronic devices. http://hartge.de/e/bmw_fahrwerk_6153.html

Got the H&R's installed at Turner this week, the car feels awesome, more connected/raw like the E60 550i.
