what do you mean $550?

$110 there.. so the $60 or whatever bimmerparts list is probably still fine.

as in the OP (and everything i could find on google) TRW is the OEManufacturer for the M3 suspension components - same part numbers and all.

and even for aftermarket applications, they have a good reputation.

these don't have the M3 stamp as far as i can tell yeah, if that's your thing.. personally.. i'm not driving an M car nor do i want to pretend to, but i'd like to have M car handling, so the parts matter, the 'branding' doesn't.

here you go!

zoom in on that, the M3 part on Turner has TRW stamped

they don't even seem to have M logos? just TRW. Probably not getting them from BMW or something
