    Rest of my M3 suspension bits arrived today.

    I went ahead and pulled all the part numbers so I'll know which piece goes where and thought it might be useful for someone looking to do this upgrade.

    Picked up the subframe bushings from a forum member.

    Will you be doing the install?

    I'd love to read a review when you get everything settled.

    For what it is worth, I bought the front M arms from ECS. They were the "TRW" branded arms, but when I received them I noticed that someone had simply removed the ///M logo from the arms with a die grinder.

    Buying the TRW set from ECS is almost 200 USD less than the BMW set from ECS. I believe TRW is the OEM for BMW, so the parts are literally the same, except for the ground off M logo. You can clearly see from pictures on the 'net, that even the arms with the M logo are branded with the initials TRW as well. The TRW arms from ECS also had the BMW part numbers molded into them.

    I'm sure this information is all but useless to the OP, but hopefully others can save some money.

    Props to you for giving this a shot. I am curious if these parts may fit my 535xi. I never thought about swapping in M suspension before your post. Thanks again!

    I was thinking about doing everything except the subframe bushings, but might have the shop just install everything including my differential lockdown kit at the same time. I have a tentative install scheduled for later this week, but won't be confirmed until tomorrow night.

    I'll update everyone once everything's in.

    Thanks, but I'm not the first to do this :p

    It's a direct swap for us E92/90 guys. Not sure about the 5 series, but maybe you can swap in M5 suspension bits?

    That's what I'm hoping. Not looking to do it right away but when I do and if it works, I'll post info.
