I have not tried the Dinan springs, but I understand they lower the car the least of all the options available. I think the ride is fairly good and the handling is substantially better than stock. I just installed AC Schnitzer on my 535i with Sport package and could not be happier. The car has not settled completely but so far the drop is about 3/4" all around. I run 21" Alpina wheels with Non RFT and the car rides better than the stock sport setup. The handling is so much better than stock is not even fair to compare them. brake dive, body roll and general floatiness are close to gone, that combined with the great ride make these springs my pick. I was a bit reluctant at first to believe their balance could be achieved with a noticeable drop in height, ACS made me a believer.

Thanks for your insight. The 550i ACS springs cost a lot more than 535i for some reasons, I would still consider ACS but want to get some feedback on Dinan as well.

ACS springs cost the same for 528s and 550s, less for 535s. I wonder why?
