Smile Getting MP HAS INSTALLED

Finally getting MP HAS installed at the dealership (BMW West Houston).
I had a chat with the tech and explained I wanted to maintain the same rate but lowered. Not looking for the slammed look but removing the huge gap in the front.

Will update, post before and after pictures.

I was looking for same results as you.

Dealer charged $900 with alignment

Indy shop wanted $500 no alignment. Alignment would be extra

For reference, in case it helps anyone else, my MP HAS is on-order from bmwpartspros (Black Friday deal: $1,182 including shipping and the hardware), and my SA at my local dealer (Mt. Laurel) was able to quote me an install cost of $637 (for 5 hours, as per BMW install instructions; and if they take longer I won't be charged. And this includes alignment).

If anyone's interested, PM me and I'll send you contact info for my SA there.

Looking great, OP. Excited to have this installed in a few weeks myself. How's it drive?

So after a week, I can honestly say the drive is the same as stock but I feel the car is better planted. I haven't pushed it yet as I'm getting my break in service tomorrow. Will report back.

Depends on what version of I-step you have.

If it's the latest one, all you need is install+alignment.

I have 2016 F80... what's I-step? If coding is not required, I'm seriously picking up a set before sale ends. help!

It's the software that makes your car work

While there is newer versions available since 2016, you probably have a new enough version that you won't benefit too much from the update.

how can I check the software version?
And if I have a "new enough" version, basically this kit is going to be just expensive OEM lowering springs?
