    I know Turner MS sells solid/derlin subframe bushing the E9x cars, unsure if they sell M specific ones.

    I'm sure you know this- but expect A LOT of NVH in the cabin if/when you go with solid subframe mounts. Just FYI.

    How do I minimize the noise?

    Not get solid subframe bushings. I'm just being straight up with you, I don't know of any way to make it tolerable for a street driven car. If you have the diff lockdown kit i'd imagine your rear suspension is pretty well sorted under load, no? Or are you seeing tons of wheel hop?

    I've ridden in one car with solid subframe bushings, it was not an E9x so perhaps it wasn't as well sorted and insulated...but it was seriously gnarly. I have a pretty high tolerance to rudely behaved cars, but this was absolutely unacceptable for a car that had dreams of being daily driven.

    The lockdown kit is a fantastic part, i always forget i have it, don't notice any added NVH, but there is literally ZERO wheel hop with the brace installed. Plus Rick is an awesome guy, i drove out to his shop in PA and he did the install for me and gave me a sweet deal.
