TC creates their own reinforcement kit. If i had to do it again i would ask them if they would install the reddish kit. They race heavily their own bmws including E46s, so it's important to lay out your goals for the car then they will recommend reinforcement according to that.

All these guys do is this kind of chassis, safety stuff...and I would 100% go there again.

$1500 + kit and bushings is not bad.

Hmmm.... Perhaps I should've taken vacation and driven up there to get this done.

That is very reasonable price.

Hey guys,
I just posted up our yearly group buy. Looking for at least 5 for first tier of discount, if we can go 10, I'll go a little deeper on labor. We can knock out all 10 by end of year.

Here is the hijacked thread, let me know if we should start a new one.

I too am down for being part of a group buy. I just picked up my M3 not too long ago and want to make sure I get all the preventative maintenance out of the way.

I thought I'd inform everyone. I just got a price quote from Tony at TC, the price is now $1800.

still worth it - price depends a lot on what you need to change out while there.
