Air Ride Suspension on xDrive?? *HELP*

Looking for some help here, contacted Bag riders out of Cali and also reached out to KSPORT on the kit they sell but EVERYTHING seems to EXCLUDE xdrive/all wheel drive vehicles.
Plenty of bagged f30 body but everyone is RWD i've seen...
which most use the EDC cancel kit for no errors on dash but want to pull the trigger on getting my f30 xdrive bagged but want to see if someone has successfully done it and what struts, management, etc they use. thanks in advance always turn to the expert advice from everyone on here but will probably upset most purist members but worth a shot!!

I have 2 bagged Subarus and went through Bag Riders (they are out of Vermont by the way, not Cali)... but at least on their Subaru setups they used a lot of BC Racing coilover components on their performance series air struts. I am not positive if the same goes for their BMW setups, but its worth looking into since I know BC Racing makes a coilover setup for the X-drive, they just take an additional 2 weeks to build. You might be able to work with Bag Riders and BC to come up with a set based on the BC BR series X-drive hardware and have Bag Riders fabricate the X-drive coilovers with some air bellows. Ask for John Hall or Will Fisher at Bag Riders, Will is a BMW guy and he can probably work with you to come up with something. Those guys know everything there is and can hopefully give you some more insight. Not trying to get your hopes up, but if at all possible, they would definitely be the ones to make it happen.

How much do you think the setup will cost? I have a 435i xdrive and want to bag it as well.

I bagged my 335-x drive. nobody had a kit for this car and had to get one custom made. It was a B***h. went through about 3 kits before they sent one that actually worked...trial and error pretty much! I went with Accuair E-Level management & ordered AirDynamiks Struts. Im still testing out this last kit they sent me but its been pretty good to me. some things im not so happy with them but they were the only company willing to make this work! Contact me if you need any help on where to order and any more detailed questions and answers!
