Thumbs up Dinan Springs Update (review pending)

Just chatted with one of the sales guy at Dinan, very nice guy. He said their springs for the f30 lower the car approximately 3/4 inch front and back, and include updated bumpstops F&R.

He also mentioned that the springs will work on cars with and without the Adaptive M Suspension. No issues whatsoever.

UPDATE: 1.22.14 Car is in shop for installation today. Will update this thread later with more information and pictures.

3/4" off stock or 3/4" off sport suspensions?

Stock has softer shocks and smaller sways. Also things to factor into the modification.

Cost estimate? most of their stuff is way over priced but i'm sure these will be well designed... 0.75" good drop too without being too extreme or changing stock dynamics a lot

What are bump stops?
Will this prevent premature wear on the shocks?

Thanks!

What's everyone's thoughts on if these springs would mate up to bilstein b8 shocks?

Debating If I should do them instead of the eibach prokit.

Where can I get those springs?

Can't find them on the dinan site =(



I just wonder how good are these springs, I've heard ppl having issues with all aftermarket springs as they are not matched...

How does these springs work with m sports dampers?

I just got off the phone with Dinan and they said they were made to work with the stock msport shock travel. Also include updated bumpstops.

Probably me. I'm gonna order them this week.

FYI - I have a non DHP, sportline 335i. They said no need to change shocks, as these were made to work with dhp and non dhp cars.

They confirmed to me last week that the 335i springs were available as well...Maybe they changed their mind last minute? But I doubt it, I think they will be available as well.

I was told to call back in 2-3 days. I will make the purchase hopefully by this Thursday. As for 335 xdrive, you may want to ask them.

Since you have an xdrive, isn't your car much higher than the reg msport/sportline 335s? If thats the case, it may not make much sense to get the dinan ones as they wouldnt lower your car that much from stock...

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
