    I would be in for a full set, when you give the green light. I have not bought my bushing for the 335is yet, I was going to get them from Turner Motorsport, but if yours works out and the price is right I'm in.

    @TRES see if he will work a deal with you on getting all of them replaced, so that we could get this on the road! No pun intended!Click here to enlarge

    No,its much more than that. The extra pieces aren't pictured for anti-copying reasons,in process of applying for an application patent(i've already had designs for other vehicles pirated in the past,hence the precautionary measures).if you look hard enough at the undercar video,you could figure it out if you're in the know...

    That does't exactly solve the test fit issue completely,kind of looking for a car that has stock or poly mounts that has the wheel hop issue-the other section your referring to will probably be in the $300 range,its looking like the whole thing is gonna have to be priced in the $6-650 range,granted my bushing design for the rear subframe differs from anything available. After removing the stock bushings and realizing just how thin and flimsy the factory upper subframe is,i devised a machined to fit 2-piece design solid bushing for the rear set that locks both halves of the upper subframe together firmly with just the right amount of preload. The tolerances are incredibly tight, hence the cautious approach to giving the go ahead to automated production of sets. Im not keen on having a couple grand in useless paperweights lol...i have just the one test set now,since switching all the tooling around to make each part is time consuming and expensive for me. In production the most efficient way is run off the most numbers of each piece before tooling changes. I will be producing extra pieces of the "4th link assembly" for those of you who have the solid bushings already.heres an installed pic of one of the hand made setsClick here to enlarge

    Can you elaborate on this? Do you mean there is still wheel-hop using poly bushings or....
    Do you mean there is some unpleasant vibration in the car? Or is it there only when you add the supplementary arm with the poly bushings?

    I ran the powerflex setup and still got hop over poor surfaces.
    I'm all about the gentleman's fast-bucket. I wouldn't have it any other way than quiet and fast. This kit doesn't introduce vibration or noise.

    Using metal bushings to eliminate wheel hop is definitely not a good compromise in my book. Think about the cabin noise that these add.

    Do they add a ton of noise?

    yes,if its necessary,I would be more than happy to address it.I haven't been able to verify whether or not the finned M diff cover uses one or two ears to connect to the subframe...

    I have no idea.

    I only experienced wheel hop once in the M but if this prevents it I'm all for it.

    barely noticeable if any at all. uniter is a pretty discerning customer,he has addressed that concern in a post above...in the motorsports world sometimes nvh has to be sacrificed for power handling capability,much to my suprise it wasn't compromised with this adaptation of the kit(although i honestly expected adverse results of some kind). the bmw rubber subframe mounts seem to soak up any nvh that would have been created. in my honest opinion bmw went way too soft on these cars(well,one could argue the whole line) in the interest of ultimate smoothness...problem with that is its disconnecting the true driver/enthusiast from the road. its incredible how quickly the stock bushings deteriorate when power is applied, we wouldn't be having any conversation about this if that wasn't the case...

    as long as you can part with the car for a couple days(in the odd chance that an edit would need to be made) then absolutely not. a little birdie told me you had the chance to experience the kit in person...feedback? i have several supra guys from nyc/jersey that travel semi-regularly so its not far by any means.

    does the M diff have one or two "ears" that connect to the upper rear subframe?

    You can probably call Dan @ diffsonline and fine this out as well. But if you can get the info just from pics then that's fairly simple right there.

    good stuff.basically i'm looking for a clean shot of the upper portion of the diff,or from passenger side axle area looking up and towards the back of the car.you'll need to jack up to do this.i did a web image search,it was all over the place,really didn't see anything concrete.i saw both styles (3 and 4 point mounting) of oem finned M style covers...
