Upgrade the handling performance of your non M E82/E88 1-series or non M E90/E91/E92/E93 3-series with components originally designed for the E9X M3 and E82 1M

To start off, the non M and M designed suspension are similar in terms of design philosophy which is not surprising when you consider that BMW's M division is working off what BMW already designed. However, there are numerous changes made to the M version control arms which drastically improve handling performance. Because the suspensions are almost identical in design it allows for the 1-Series M and M3 control arms to be installed in their non M counterparts without modification.

The tension struts (big curved control arms) feature a solid rubber inner bushing which reduces deflection and eliminates the hydro bushing weakness which is tearing and leaks. The solid rubber bushing is stiffer which helps tighten up the front suspension without being overly stiff and unforgiving. The lower wishbones (straight control arm) features a sealed inner bearing, also known as a monoball, that allows for the inner part of the control arm to rotate more freely when compared to the non M rubber bushing. This design change also allows for added durability in the long run. The lower control arm is slightly longer which adds approximately .75° of negative camber helping reduce under steer and drastically improving turn in response without having a significant impact on tire read life.

Great Price, Works As Advertised

Got these arms installed over the weekend, and it does make a difference on turn-in and steering response, of course with the great price doesn't hurt either.

Excellent upgrade for the e8x/e9x cars. smoother steering action and noticeably higher grip in cornering. Very straight forward and worthwhile mod.

Excellent Suspension Upgrade For Your E9 X

TRW manufactures the control arms for the M3 so these are the OEM control arms. Firms up the suspension and improves the handling. This is an excellent suspension modification for all E9X owners. FCPEuro offers these at an excellent price. Shipping was quick.

Ride is a decent amount firmer , and steering wheel feels tighter. When I say firmer, the best way I can describe it is if you ever had motor mounts installed, it tightens everything up , that's what it feels like. Car feels more planted. It also fixed the random clunking sound I had from the front oem fluid filled bushings that were worn and leaking. The cons: It did increase road noise, as expected from stiffer bushings. You do give up some comfort but not much. If oem ride quality was a 10 , it would drop it down to a 7.5-8 . You do NEED a alignment right after install because of the increased negative camber the control arms add and the stock specs of the alignment will be way off until you get it done . Overall I am pleased with the upgrade , and the increased responsiveness of the steering was worth the comfort trade off .

Worth every penny! 100% better steering response and feel over the stock parts. Stock parts were make to work with run flat tires and since I ditched those, lowered it and upgraded the shocks, this kit rounds out my front end upgrades and provides a nice balance between performance and comfort. It does give a little more chassis feedback (road imperfections, etc...), but its all good. Don't forget the alignment!

Great Upgrade For Front Suspension

I have a E90 328i. I did the M3 front control arm upgrade, replacing standard 328i wishbones and Meyle HD tension struts. This upgrade made a noticeable improvement in turn-in and stability. The stiffer bushings and additional camber make the car feel more buttoned-down. The parts are made by TRW and they look almost identical to the Genuine BMW versions. Very happy with this purchase, thank you FCPEuro for stocking them. Bill L
