This is confirmed to fit my 535xi as well as another members 550i so safe to say that this fits all F10's! It is a direct swap that should only take 15-20mins tops. (Keep in mind this is for cars without ARS)

Kudo's to Evan for helping me source the bar and helping me out on my experiment

Here is my review after installing the M5 front sway bar

All I have to say is wow and everyone must do this. This is how the car should have came stock. My car has DDC and ACS springs and I am in sport mode 99.9% of the time. Before the M5 sway bar I would rate the handling of my F10 a 4 or 5 out of 10 at best compared to my previous E46 and E90 on coilovers but now its a solid 7.

The suspension just feels tighter and more solid up front and you notice it this when going over bumps and uneven roads. The car is flatter during turns and the steering feels alittle more direct/precise during high speed lane changes. Before I would anticipate the roll/sway movement but now the car just points to where you want it. It isn't a track car by any means but that wallowing feeling is pretty much gone or barely noticeable anymore. Nothing negative about doing this mod at all so far. Very pleased.

Alan

Nobody will tell you for sure but as of right now this fits 528/535/550 RWD and AWD so no reason to think that it won't fit your 530xd either. Its not in bmw's best interest to start producing different parts for no reason for the same chassis.

How do you know if your car has ARS?

Alan,
Did you install this on your own or did you take it somewhere to have it done? I am considering this so I would appreciate your input. Thanks

The easiest is to have the BMW dealer pull up your VIN and they should be able to tell you what options your car has. If not you can take a peak under the rear of the car. Going to have to get dirty but you should be able to see the rear sway bar. The ARS bar has a canister looking thing right in the middle with two oil lines going into it.

MBA
Here's my post on the other forum about the install...

I also want to add the install for the M5 front sway bar is super easy. You can do it with the car on ramps in no more than 30mins and thats taking your time.

I normally DIY all of my parts but now with a baby I decided to let my shop do it. I watched the whole process and it was in and out in 30mins and that includes getting the car on and off the lift. Theres maybe a dozen small bolts that holds the belly pan up and once that is off you have a total of 6 bolts that holds the sway bar in place. Its in a area that isn't blocked by anything and you can reach all of the bolts with ease.

My stock front sway bar - The red circles are where all of the bolts are except one that is off the pic.

Directly from BMW:

"Active Roll Stabilization

Active Roll Stabilization is an active suspension control system designed to reduce body-roll, or lean, while cornering. This improves the vehicle"s suspension geometry (the degree of wheel angle relative to vertical). "

Got the bar from Tischer, and have it installed this morning.
The M5 bar should be the default bar for the normal 5 series.
Now my 535 drives more like a BMW should be.
Very happy with the rather cheap, but effective upgrade.
