If I recall, a Dinan stage 2 is a Stage 1 + Dinan swaybars. The Stage 3 (I believe) gets you different springs (lower, firmer) and a whole different rear subrame. All proper Dinan setups are tuned shock springs.

I have a stage one setup in my car and it's drop is very minimal (to my liking).I have the revalved Bilstein shocks, Koni's are the other option. I'm very pleased with my setup. Runs great on the track, driveable around town and never bottoms.

Here's some Stage 1 before and after pics. Hope this helps.

90 535i

I'd like to compare the height of a 535 (measured from the ground to the edge of the front wheel well lip) on cars that have been lowered using aftermarket springs. Please email or post 1) the height, 2) type of spring, & 3) size of tire currently used. thanks,
