Default DP's for e60 535xi - 04-27-2016, 12:15 PM

Finally able to pull the trigger on DP's and it appears that AR design went bankrupt. Can anyone help me locate ********* DP's for my 535xi? I've seen the DIY for the VSRF DP's. Not something I can do with a torch and hammer..

I had the luxury of paying $900+ for XI compatible *** back in 2010... AR was the only player in town at the time. They did fit great though.

None of the "reps" work well actually. Its actually disappointing how the innovators have been pushed out of the market because of the guys knocking stuff off. The current reps fit like absolute dog crap. Really does suck for the E60 guys, they dont even have options like AR design or Dr Euro anymore (quality pieces and fitment).

You are absolutely correct for a 335xi, but not for the 535i or 535xi

Nope

Edit: Just checked the VRSF website and they list 535xi fitment but I think that is a typo. If not then all xi owners can rejoice. Better confirm fitment with Tiago.

I spoke with VRSF a few weeks ago and they Do Not fit without modification.
VRSF also said they could not make a DP that would be a direct bolt on for the E60 XI.
This seems to be one of the few N54 models with no DP option, maybe a group buy would encourage a vender to produce a less expensive option for the E60 XI.

Tiago is the person who sent me the link. I asked him about the IC as well and he gave me a link to your post on this forum ucsbwsr.
