Re: Would you buy a brand new E46 m3??

Nope. There are better options at that price point for what the e46 offers. It was a benchmark for its time (and still kind of is, I suppose), but in today's market, it's outdated tech.

Re: Reinforcing Swaybar Bushing Mounting Points

Additionally, I was running Hotchkis swaybar kit set to medium stiffness when the failure happened. And its been about a month or so (~1k miles) since I did the diy. So far, so good.
