To add to my confusion, this one control arm bears two part numbers:
- A= 6 852 991 - 04 => identifies as Wishbone, Left for all F2x F3x except M135i/M235i on realoem.com
- S= 6 857 329 - 03 => identifies as Wishbone, Left for M135i/M235i on realoem.com

So I guess Bee Pee you're right they must be identical and the only difference is the wheel hub, not the control arms, but the part number catalog may be slightly off?

Sorry to derail the derailment of this thread back onto the original topic :P , but do we have any news on the release of the Damptronic dampers?

I am within of a month or two of having to replace my tires and if I could I would try to do tires, springs and shocks at the same time.

No news this side of the Pond.

UPDATE - ACS UK implying they will have adaptive bilsteins available in about a month for F series X drive cars - see post below.

I have been going back and forth between Ohlins R&T and just replacing OEM adaptive dampers. Waiting to see how these look before doing anything.

Aren't these available?

I called them and they said they won't work with the OEM adaptive system, and is it's own standalone system

Indeed, this ´Ride control' series has its own independent control, while i understand it's the ´damptronic' series that link to the onboard electronics

They don't - the part no quoted in your link is for B6 RideControl [or B6 RC] which is a retrofit adaptive for non EDC cars.

B6 Damptronic is a PnP for EDC cars with following part no

• 23-250727 Front Left

• 23-250734 Front Right

• 20-250744 Rear L & R

John,

Read post # 1 on this thread - gives you the part numbers for B16 DT c/overs. No news on when they will be to market but probably middle/2nd half of 2017.

Cool, thanks! A little later than I hoped, but so it goes... At this point, I've got Dinan springs and sways + MPPSK, and the B6 Damptronics are the missing piece of the puzzle (plus MPS4S's at some point). Any word on US delivery timeframe?

It's best to call Bilstein US directly and ask about the availability of these coilovers. I called Bilstein US in the past. Very helpful team.
