Interesting. Do you know if there are plans to support the F31 and xDrive models?

Oh well. I guess there are too many people that track their xDrives to warrant manufacturers to make products to support them.

As long as the GC camber plates are meant for the stock suspension you shouldn't have any issues using them on the Ohlins.

Just spoke to Ohlins USA again this morning. Looks like they are still on track as of today for late April delivery.

Please PM us with any questions you may have.

Getting impatient waiting for Bilstein to release the PSS10 for my car.

BTW, had Ohlins rear shock on my motorcycle. Simply awesome!

As far as I know they are to work with the stock upper mounts so if your GC didn't require any modification to fit, Ohlins R&T will likely bolt-on as well.

Given that it's nearly impossible to get AST in the USA and have after sales support. Ohlins is the way to go for a monotube high pressure single adjustable coilover kit.

The more relevant statistic is the percentage of suspension modded F3x vehicles that have xDrive. I bet that statistic would be no place near 50% even if the tuners made upgrades as available.

+1. How many total xDrive owners vs. RWD owners are enthusiasts?

Regarding reliability, what makes the Ohlins more reliable?

Also, the specified drop (front 15mm and rear 20mm) is from base suspension or from the Sport suspension (10mm drop from base)? I'm looking for something that can be close to OEM ride height. I know the M Performance Suspension is a 10mm drop from the base suspension.
