Dinan does not make a coilover kit for the F10 non-M's, only for the M5. Even if they were compatible with non-M5's, they wouldn't be with his, as xDrive has an entirely different front fork setup than RWD cars.

So you have rwd? Why not just install the dinan springs?

I have xDrive, where did I suggest I have RWD? I have KW v3's

As for why not Dinan springs, I want coilovers. I want that adjustability, and the ability to adjust the compression and rebound.

The other commenter you were responding to is already on lowering springs, so I'm unsure how going from lowering springs to lower springs changes anything.

I already have Eibachs, there wonít be much difference, but coilovers, this is the next level) Iíve probably reached it, thatís why Iím thinking of installing coilovers. KW has good reviews. Yesterday I found several advertisements for the sale of used coilovers... but I donít like used ones...
