R4HM4N posted a topic in G30/G31 2017-Hi, Has anyone on the forum lowered the ride height on a G30 Xdrive with adaptive suspension. At the moment I am reading, changing the springs to lower by 30mm should be fine. It will not have an adverse impact on the shocks or the workings for adaptive suspension. Has anyone on the actually done this and can they provide some feedback please? The stance is not quite right for me, due to Xdrive + adaptive having 10mm lift against the passive M-sport suspension. was hoping to do this but not at the risk of damaging the adaptive suspension. Thank you Shanur
Hey guys, Recently, after replacing my 16" turbines with 17" alloys, I've been thinking of fitting some lowering springs to the e39. I don't want to "slam" it as there are a few speed bumps near me. I've been thinking of max of 30mm, but I would like to see what you guys have. So can you please post a pic of your lowered e39s and a small detail (name of springs, and lowering height) Much appreciated!
