Suspension for M550i

I'm looking to put some springs on my 2019 M550i. Any suggestions? My budget is around 500USD.

Is it bouncy tho? Since you are still on stock coilover. Also I heard lowering spring is very damaging to the stock coil over, is this true? Btw how long did it take you to install the springs? I saw online that you have to take your rear seats out to install the springs.

Ride quality is really good. It will not damage your stock shocks. Dinan/HR are both reputable and invest into proper R&D prior to releasing products.

My install took about 4 hours and did require removing the rear seats. I paid $400 for the install.

Dinan will lower your car .75 all around HR 1.3 front 1.2 rear.

You can find pictures of both if you search here on the forum to help you decide

I had h&r springs for a month and found them to be too low for how soft they are. In comfort mode, it was basically as soft as the stock setup while being much lower. I often had to change to sport DDC setting to not scrape on steeper ramps and driveways. Other than that, I think they are worth the money and the lowering+ more negative camber did make a decent difference in handling.

I feel like the Dinan springs with the handling package worked out perfectly for me.


I wasnt going for a "slammed" look, but was rather looking for reducing wheel gap, body roll and nose lift/squat.

Here are some before and after. The first 2 pics are stock and rest are with Dinan springs installed.

I also paid 400 for installation.
