F30 335i xDrive, Adaptive Suspension - Lowering Springs??

Hi all,

I am about to lower my 2015 335i xdrive with adaptive M suspension. After doing some research, it seems like Dinan and Eibach have some good matching lowering springs for f30 adaptive suspension. Has anyone tried these springs in there F30 yet? if yes, what are your thoughts? Video below shows my reasoning.

Update on the Eibach lowering springs and Dinan bump stop install. I went with the RWD version of the Eibach springs, even though my F30 is xDrive. Overall, I am happy with the end result.

I have the Dinan springs and stops and i coupled it with Dinan's "Shockware" software update. Couldn't be happier.

njdangelo Nice! Thanks for sharing. I did not know much about the Dinan's Shockware software, but I am going to check it out. Quick question. On what aspects did you notice the improvement after the software update?

I noticed the most change in sport/sport+.

Makes sense. It seem like a great option if you have the dinan springs. I have eibacks, because dinan did not offer enough drop for me for the xDrive. I see that the shockware is tuned for 20 to 30% stiffer shocks. Eiback is about 10% stiffer. It's a bummer. I will do more research on it and see if they offer different tuning options. Thanks again, @njdangelo

I am currently on H&R springs. Very nice look and also the car is stiffer and more responsive. Although, you feel every bump on the road.

H&R was an option too. But, I read mixed reviews on them, so to keep it safe I went with Eibachs.

H&R springs specific to my F33 xDrive M adaptive suspension. I'd say how much it lowered it but nobody woul likely believe it.

Was thinking of going with similar setup. Any idea of labor cost for this? Can't do the shockware flash myself, so was considering taking the lazy approach and just having my local Dinan dealer do it.

Not sure on the labor cost for the springs/bump stops but I would imagine pretty pricy as the repair Manila say 4 hours for the rear and 6 for the front or something like that. The shock we're should only be an hour of labor
