I will be contacting my service manager in the AM regarding that as it's worded in a way that leads me to believe they may not be perfectly straight.

I also paid for an alignment based on their suggestion which made sense with how hard the impact was.

Any issues riding with opposite tires with tread wear vs fresh tires?

Driving home felt good overall though I thought I noticed some drift to the right during some harder accelerating through the gears. Not sure if that is the rims "repaired by site", uneven tire wear on one side of the car, some combination of the two, or my imagination.
If opposite tires are worn vs fresh, they aren't really the same size, one wheel would spins slightly less than the others. Its not really recommended longer term so it would depends on your degree of wear. If its like 50% wear vs a fresh tire, I would just swap it out.

Take what I said with a grain of salt.

Just back yesterday from the Spa. One step paint correction and Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light coating.

Pretty shiny.

Changed out the front grill to gloss black, best $40 spent.

Wash the car and put sealant as well as clean and triple coat the top with raggtop.

I got some Dinan springs (D100-0929) & the handling kit (D193-2201) installed at one of the authorized Dinan dealers, and now my right side is creaky af 🥲

Ive already put about 150 miles on the car since the install, but the problem doesnt seem to be getting any better. Ive messaged the shop where it was installed and they instructed me to wait 1000 miles after the install for them to take a look at it. Its pretty embarrassing driving through parking lots, I feel like everyone can hear the loud ass creaks 😂

Is this normal? Should I be concerned? VIDEO BELOW.

There was a sales freeze on the Dinan springs last year due to this creaking issue. My understanding is that there are some defective ones out there so I would give the shop a call and alert them to this if they are unaware. I was unable to purchase the springs last year while they were sorting out the issue and ultimately decided to pass on them.

No. That is not normal.

And driving it like that for a 1000 miles is ridiculous. I mean I get things settle. But that sounds shady to me that they suggest you wait.

I would have them remove them or redo the install. No way would that be acceptable, at least for me. If is indeed a defective spring, I hope Dinan would help you out in this case. Maybe pay for the labor?

my two cents....

That's pretty concerning. I ordered these springs from UroTuning beginning of February, and they barely arrived a few weeks ago due to getting pushed back week after week. The whole reason I went with Dinan is for the quality, but I've had bad luck with their product since the get-go it seems...

I talked to the shop owner, and made an appointment to get it looked at this Friday. He too suggested that it could be the strut mounts. But my issue is that my suspension had 0 noise or issues prior to the install.

I'm not too familiar with suspension components, but could the mounts have been damaged during the spring & handling kit install?

Good to hear the owner is up for helping. I hope they can resolve this quickly.

In theory, yeah, anything could have been damaged. But more likely it is an improperly torqued top mount or maybe the rubber insulator that goes between the spring and the strut top mount. IF anything is damaged it is on the shop.

The noise sounds like rubber being torqued on (in my opinion of course). Not metal to metal, which is good. But clearly something is binding and causing the noise. I am willing to bet it can be fixed fairly easily, unless Dinan still has an issue with its springs. But I don't think this is related personally.

Looking forward to hearing what the fix was....

Paint correction and Gyeon ceramic quote. My body is sore! I’m not sure why my picture got flipped like that.

Took the car off the charger and went to Costco. 6 weeks sitting in the garage. Using Mini Cooper S for groceries.

If it wasn't ordered exactly how I wanted it, paid for, Dinan elite tune and Dinan CF intake, 8000 miles going on 5 years old, I'd probably sell it to someone that would actually drive it,

Sounds like my story, except: Kroger, Mazda 3 MT hatchback, and 11K going on 3 years. Still, it's there when I want to occasionally enjoy it.

Ceramic coated with Gtechniq CSL and two coats of ExoV4. Really happy with how it turned out. Washed, iron remover, clay and prep wiped first. Took three days.

I am experiencing the same thing. Got my Dinan springs and handling kit installed a little while ago and I have the same noise on the same side.

The problem is fixed. I took my car to their shop in Fremont and the car was literally out in 15 min. Im glad they were able to fix it with ease.

Yes mine got fixed. The owner of the shop said the spring wasnt seated correctly, most likely by going over a dip too quickly after the install or something like that he suggested. Perhaps try starting there.

Keep us updated on the issue.

Finished the rear suspension - installed the Ohlins R&T last year then the Covid lockdown hit. So I got it aligned and never finished, because I realized after a couple months I wasn't driving anywhere exciting. So now after finishing the install today, getting aligned on Thursday - heading to Deals Gap and the Smoky Mountains for a week on Saturday for a much needed break. From there onto Spartanburg for some M driving classes @ the BMW Performance center.

Translation: the person installing the spring didnt bother to turn it to have the spring end line up with the bump in the seat, so I'm happy to fix it and hand you some bullshit about a dip and 5 min after you leave I'll be slapping the install dipshit in the head

Ended up bringing my car back to BMW and they have had it for some time.

I got a call today that it was indeed unmatched tread on the back left tire and they said it was driving as expected under acceleration with a new one. Picking it up tomorrow.

Happy to get it back and resolved, but not happy to shell out for another tire.
