No offense but the stock car (X3Mc) is already one of the stiffest I have ever owned. I cannot imagine lowering it anymore is going to help but only make the ride significantly worse with less travel. Just my 2cents but this car certainly does not need that. I understand in a sports sedan or coupe but a SUV that is already quite low and firm (1 inch lower than X3 M40i) I think this is not a great option.

Agreed. H&Rs will give the drop, but as seen on other models - at the expense of ride quality.

I have them on mine and disagree. If anything it is softer than stock. Not by much mind but deffo not harder.

I think the stock springs are already so stiff, any other springs will make the ride inadvertently better.

H&R springs improved the ride and dampening on my F90. Like night and day. The stock springs were over sprung imho. Rear was like an ejector seat over dips. H&R's lowering springs usually are rated softer. my only issue with the x3m comp is the steering in comfort needs to go from a level 8 to a level 5, and the ride in comfort (only in the city) has a hard time finding a place to settle. It actually rides like the old cayenne's from 2006. excited to see what h&r will deliver withOUT an insane amount of hood drop.

They are, but weight on rear half is different.
It may be off slightly.

The MSS spring will work better since it is adjustable.

I see MSS are available now. I wonder how they perform on the X3. I had them on my RS3 and did not like them. Way too bouncy, maybe my fault as I had them very low. I will wait until someone else tries them first.

Just got mine yesterday. Hopefully I can get it installed today.

I will put out a review and pictures once installed.
