Cal, do they have anything for a '11 550i Msport with EDC and ARS? I know they have a kit for cars with EDC (electronic dampening) and they just include a delete kit, but I haven't heard back from anyone about the ARS (active roll stabilization).

Cars equipped with adaptive drive are not compatible unfortunately.

Unfortunately at this time KW has no plans to develop/release a kit for X-Drive equipped F10s, this is from KW NA Direct.

There is an alternative readily available from CKS. Please PM me for more info.

wow ! What happened to the so-called "ongoing testing and should be finalizing the production details" as replied by KW NA back in January 2012.

I have been following their V3 for the xdrive since spring of 2011 and it has been over a year now and to hear this is a disappointment.

Not sure why they scrapped the project for F10 X-Drive, makes no logical sense to me....I'll try to get some more info on this from KW NA.

I simply don't understand this. They already make V3 for the RWD F10, I was told a year ago by the same people that due to xdrive slightly heavier weight, the engineers need to tweak the setting a bit to get the optimal balance. What's even odd is that they have been at this for well over a year since I began sending questions to KW NA.

If they can make a product from exotics super sportscar to a VW Golf, I am simply blown away that they cannot even make one for an AWD bimmer.

I was mistaken- seems like CKS doesn't have a readily available application for F10 X-Drive but they do plan on developing/releasing one - they just need a F10 X-Drive car to take some measurements first...anybody in LA/SoCal area willing to volunteer?

Damn,

the xdrive owners are being shortchanged again (simply having to wait for 2years+ to get a coilovers xdrive version)! The same goes for ecu tune as well (I know Dinan has a tune for N63 but I am not crazy enough to spend $4000 for it, for that $, I rather spend on suspension & wheels .. better yet, save that towards my next car)

btw, thanks for all the research with your suppliers.

Just got words back directly from KW in Germany (in regards to their V3 for xdrive) as I was requesting the reason for discontinuing their testing & production for the said V3.

"The 4WD (xDrive) car has a different front axle than the 2WD, that’s why it doesn’t fit the car. Lastly, there is not enough interest in the present time to build a coilover for the xDrive."

Appreciate the updates...unfortunately got no word back from CKS since our last correspondence...

Will nobody ever make a coilover for F10 X-Drive? First who does can monopolize the market!!!
