Question XI Sway Bars

Besides the RDSport sway bar kit are there any other sway bar upgrades for 530xi?


Why are there options for the RWD cars but not the AWD cars? Am I missing something?


The RDSports sway bars are a MASSIVE upgrade from stock. I think it would just be too stiff for a daily driver.


Any thoughts or input, please don't hesitate!

sway bars will not affect driving in a straight line. you would feel the difference when taking turns mainly. also with the RDSport sway bars there are different settings you can set it to as there are 3 holes on each side on each bar, the holes closest to the bars being the stiffest.

Most of the time you wont feel sway bars in you daily driving until you want to feel them. But when you get on a highway with deep grooves, changing lanes can become pretty jerky with stiff sway bars. That is what I am trying to avoid.

The three adjustments on those sway bars might do a better job of alleviating that then I am giving them credit for. But that's a hefty price tag to take a gamble on.

Why don't the after market RWD sway bars fit the AWD models? At least in the rear? I can understand in the front.
