Nice! Not too bad. Although we both went to the dark side. Haha! But give USP a call sometime if you need anything. Mike (service manager) will definitly help you out! He is also a BMW driver. Just got an e46 M3

Thank you. I need the softer ride- it could be a touch firmer but that's not really my issue. It's the body roll, taking a corner at speed and feeling the car list to one side that's my issue. After the E90 M-Sport, it's an uncomfortable feeling. The suspension takes the turn, but the cabin falls away.

Is a sway bar alone enough to stop the body roll, or would the shocks + sway bar get rid of it better? If what I'm looking for is a 90% reduction in body roll and a 10% increase in ride (a touch less soft) would shocks + sway bar be the right combination for me?

Thanks again.

The sway bars will significantly reduce the body roll, however doing the shows as well will definitely benefit you. But remember, if you do the stiffer shocks now and you decide to do springs later then the ride will be that much more harsh... Decisions decisions!

i plan on getting sway bars when they come out for the M3, how much do front sway bars usually cost, and does it make a noticeable difference?

My Review:
I got a few people telling me that the ride is bouncy, and rough, etc... Well that is anything but the truth! The car ride just as smooth as factory, and in my opinion BETTER! I would say it is about 15% firmer than stock in normal driving conditions. However in the turns it is a different creature. No more sway, and rid of most of the body roll. The car really handles much much better and hugs the road. I couldn't be happier with the way it sits and the way it drives! Speed bumps and misc. bumps in the road are not harsh, and no bounciness at all. If you got in the car and didn't know about the springs, it would be very difficult to tell anything was done at all! If I can give one piece of advice to everyone on here... DO IT!

Some before it went in the air...







And after...





I was wondering if you ever had to chance to get those pictures or measurements for me about the height off the ground for the front n sides.
