The coilovers are the best investment i've made on my x3. Never looked back, never had any regrets. The car become a different car, it now takes corners like any german car should. As for lowering springs... I never considered them. Id rather spend 1800 on coilovers and be happy with them than spend 500 on springs and later find that you were expecting more and end up spend more money on coils.

Yours is one of the best looking X3 :-).

I read that you went from staggered to square for xdrive reasons.

With 9.5 wheels, 275 tires, et 36 (front) n et 11 (rear), was there any rubbing on front or back?
Im considering buying a 2006 X3 and I will need a beefy wheel-tire setup :-).
any information will be helpful. I already test drove one and really liked it.
My vision is to put all terrain jeep like tires during summer time, this will be me second car for winter/pothole/valet/NYC parking.

theres no rubbing unless there are passengers in the back and im driving through rough roads. My car isn't low enough to be rubbing with me and a front passenger alone.

u can def run 285's on 9.5 with the right offset. Once I got through these tires ill most likely be getting 285/35s.

Sounds good. Thanks for the reply.
I will not be lowering it so I should be fine.
I already have a lowered e93 convertible :-), thats the reason I'm buying this.

Very nice. Did you DIY this? Would you happen to direct to the source?

The results from the coils look amazing!
