Doug it was making a clicking sound, replaced half shaft under warranty, that didn't solve it, and didnt know what it was, plus not being able to get in and out of a car very easily I didn't bother working on it until this past weekend. Ended up being a seized wheel bearing.

Is awesome!!! it's probably the softest aftermarket setup I've put on a car besides when I did factory SVTF stuff on the red car.

the ride is noticeably tight/stiff but it's not harsh at all and the car just goes where you point even on the tiny snow tires.

The entire front geometry has been converted to m3 spec so its got more camber/toe/caster than the stock 325i it's more neutral now and doesnt push like it did stock.

Quite happy with it as it sits and I think once I either put the stock sway bar back on or get bigger sway bars I'll be very happy with the handling. I told sneeze the handling feel's very similar to his G but with less power.

side note/interesting fact:
Just discovered that the m3 bars and 325i bars are the exact same shape except 325i bars are thicker and mount to control arms while m3 bars are thinner to save weight but mount to the strut to gain leverage to effectively be stiffer than the 325i bars......so since I have the m3 struts with tabs for sway bar links all I has to do is get m3 end links and I will have an m3 big sway bar! WIN!

Very nice, pretty simple install?

Switching back to my car made me realize my stock suspension is so lovely, no bouncing, just a cushion of air.

Very easy.

the entire job requires.
17mm socket to remove wheels,
18mm socket to remove bottom bolts on shocks
15mm socket to remove top nuts of shocks

it's less than 30 minutes per corner using my cordless impact. easiest suspension install I've ever done. Didnt hurt that my new stuff all came pre assembled either

Awesome! i'll have to get a ride in her soon!

morning bishes.. Timmeh and I had a very starwars weekend. Also swapped in the new alt on the benz. They shipped it with the wrong pully (gasser single pully as opposed to the smaller dual belt pully that was on his car). So we epic pully swapped the alt and installed it and it runs like a champ.
