This! You always want to follow a compound with a polish. I like Mezerna SF4500. It's not too abrasive, and makes the paint really shine and look wet if you use it with a finishing pad.

Re: Reducing Body Roll, Sway bar Questions

Get the pair. Normally a larger front bar would cause more understeer. Not the case with this car, but adding a larger rear bar too will get you closer to neutral than just a larger front bar.

Re: Front Sway Bar Downsides?

I have the hotchkis sways on my car with stock springs/shocks. Definitely a lot less body roll, and almost no change in ride comfort.

Typically a stiffer front bar creates more understeer. The...

Re: Drivability for wife

X2! It takes a week or so to learn to drive it smooth. Mined jerked so much during the test drive I thought something was wrong with it, even in manual mode in 1st gear.

Re: Stuck on the side of the damn road

If it was a coil, or even 2 it would still run. It would be rough, but would start. That's the beauty of individual coils vs 1 coil. On older cars when the coil went out you were stranded.

Re: Acura reveals new MDX

I see they still don't listen to consumer criticism. Lets hope they do before the production model releases. How can they make such a sexy NSX, but ruin everything else in the lineup?

Re: Is the E46 M3 To Be The Next E30 M3...?

I think the Z4 M Coupe stands a better chance. Only about 1800 produced, same S54, lighter chassis, only available with a manual.

Re: Best Sway Bars F/R ---

I think you run the risk of tearing the rear subframe with stiff springs too. Any component that's stiffer sends more shock thru frame, and the mounting points.
I would definitely advise against...

Re: M3 Mirror Failure Carnage

I second the preventive replacement. I waited too late thinking it doesn't happen to every E46, and now need a new center console because of it. Save yourself some money, and do it now!

That's no good, what setting did you have the front at? I'm using the middle hole, which is only 28% stiffer if I remember correctly.

Re: Best Sway Bars F/R ---

Dialing in more camber will help with the outside tire, but give you less contact patch on the inside tire as the weight transfers. You will get more even tire wear, but not necessarily more grip. ...

Re: Best Sway Bars F/R ---

One reason I chose hotchkis is they come with reinforcement plates for the front mounting points, AND new beefy/adjustable endlinks for the rear.
