This is more of a thread to our current suppliers reading the forums but after about 15 emails with blistein about my specific car and model they finally informed me they will be releasing:

BILSTEIN B16 PSS10 serial number 48-207287

Basically the current B16 PSS10 does not fit xdrive and they recommended the hr springs plus blistein 8 for the older model 335's with xdrive but come January they will be releasing this...not sure who else is excited but any supplier who gets these in please PM me!

I would not order unless you know for a fact they fit. If the product number is different it could possibly still be the set used for the NON x-drive vehicles.

On the site it shows for the front only. I have stock shocks with sport h&r and I often bottom out the fronts due to dips or really bad roads and was wondering if it's possible to change just the front shocks with the bilsteins and leave the stock shocks in the back.

German Bilstein site has the PSS10 coilovers for xDrive (48-207287) listed in there online catalogue for 1723 EUR or ~2000 USD, as mention by OP. The non xDrive (48-217170) version is listed for 1663 EUR and ECS Tuning has them for $2163 USD.

I'm guessing that they will be around $100 more for the xDrive version when available.

They currently only refer to non-xDrive vehicles with electronic dampening.

The problem is that Bilstein US will not confirm any fitment if the product is not officially on their website. I am having the same issue with coilovers for my F36. The German Bilstein site lists the product but Bilstein US knows nothing about it. I may pull the trigger anyway. I figure Bilstein will not be listing the product as fitting my car in EU unless it was true. I guess my only issue is if I have any problems with the coilovers I cant go to Bilstein US.

I understand and sympathize. I'm considering a switch but at least I'm already lowered.

I'm just saying to contact the U.S. Distributor to see when the expect to release them so he doesn't buy something else only to find out they get released shortly after.

Agreed..given my experience with KW, I would much rather go with Bilstein.

Hi guys,

I went to my local dealer (in Luxembourg) today and discussed the kit I would install. They told me that they already installed a Bilstein B14 kit (Part Number: 47-207233) on a BMW F30 335i xdrive and that the result was great. As I own the same car I will go for that kit as well. I will order it this week and install in the coming weeks (they are quite busy). I ll keep you posted..

Just received some bad news.I got a return call from:
AFTERMARKET & MOTORSPORTS – EAST
ThyssenKrupp Bilstein of America
293 Timber Road
Mooresville, NC. 28115-7868
1-704-663-7563

The lady on the phone verified if i was talking about 335i xDrive sedan or coupe. Then said the sedan kits are currently being built in Germany. When she said that my heart jumped a little bit and I got excited. Then she said the expected completion date for them is May!!

I asked her if she knew a price but she said they generally don't know until they have everything over here.

I then asked her if I could buy the kit that is available internationally for the f30 335i xDrive sedan. She said that some of them might fit, but sometimes the cars from different countries are slightly different and may not fit.

This sucks.
