Arrow Some Interesting Findings on the Dinan Stage 1 Kit

So, I finally installed the Dinan Stage 1 kit today. I've only driven it on city streets so far, and it feels only slightly stiffer vs. OE. The drop is definitely noticeable but still practical for everyday driving.

I also had H&R on my red bull before, and I feel that Dinan is a much better balance between drop, comfort, and sportiness.

Now the interesting stuff...

Dinan's kit differentiates itself from other lowering springs because it has 1) shorter front guidesupport and 2) shorter bump stops, which effectively increases the suspension travel before hitting the bump stops.

So how did Dinan come up with these two parts? Turns out, right from BMW. See pictures for details.
