Yeah, I got the E93 M3 bar installed, curious to see how it feels on track. On the street I can tell a difference, but there is a good deal of body roll.

I guess this means I'll just have to make my mind up about coilovers, I just dont want to sacrifice ride quality. I don't mind a stiff ride, but I wouldnt want clanking, squeeking etc. I had looked at some AST4150s. Have you heard good/bad feedback on AST4200/5200s? I heard Bilstein PSS10s slam the car too low, and figured these were the next best thing before JRZ/Moton/Ohlins...

you are still getting roll with the E93 arb? I got the E92 bar and practically no roll. sounds like the only thing your're missing now is the coilovers and camber plates. you will lose some ride comfort when you add camber plates but looking at your car now I think you have gone beyond the point of no return hear great things about AST. just retired my PSS9 recently and moved to Ohlins. I say go with Ohlins
