$2,754.06
PARTS: $1400.

Apparently, the suspension on the F30 is rather intricate and intimately tied together...20-21 hours to upgrade everything.

So $4000 (including parts) is a bit...too rich for my tastes. I guess I'll just install front and rear sway bards/strut tower braces to tighten things up and replace shocks/struts when I need them in 100k miles.


Finally I got the very confirmed reply from my local bmw dealer after M Performance parts are released for purchase (considered as upgrading your bimmer). If your car is either in Sport or M Sport package, springs would be retained and new shocks are required, as well as the front & rear sway bars are required to installed too. Hope this can help a bit for u guys ^ ^.
