Dinan Front Strut Bars and Front Spacer Questions

I have a '13 e92 with the Comp Pack. It's my daily driver as well so I don't want to compromise ride or the dynamics of the car.

1. I've ordered the Dinan Front Strut Bars, will I notice better turn in and crisper handling when taking it down a twisty backroad?

2. I'm on stock suspension and want to widen the stance a tad and give it that menacing look. What's the best spacer size to go with front and rear to give it a nice mean look without messing up the dynamics of the car?

3. Can someone suggest a set-up that will lower my car(remember I'm stock with ZCP) but won't compromise ride? I don't want it to be too low so I scrape but I would like to fill in the wheel gap a little without compromising the dynamics of the car.

On pt #3, you may want to look into the Dinan Stage I suspension setup... will only lower ZCP by 1/2 inch from what is currently, and from what others have said, don't think there is any rougher ride vs what you have already. I think I would have ordered it, but already scraping the front driveway to my house makes it a non-starter for me..but definitely talk to them.

You won't notice anything beside the way they look under the hood.......Phil
