Harold - what about replacing the tie rods with M3 ones. Are the M3 ones different and even a bolt in - like the wishbones and tension rods are?

Is there anything else you would recommend replacing when doing the M3 front end bits?


TIA,
Dackel

M3 control arms

One of the best mods you can do to the front suspension of your 1-series!

Harold, Do these extend the width of the wheel base? I've heard that if I put these, I would have to get camber plates since I'm pushing the limits with my VMR wheels et45 front and et50 rear with rolled and pulled fenders. Currently, I dont have any rubbing and I'm concerned that I would have rubbing issues if these extend the wheel base putting these on. Can you confirm before I place my order???

Thanks, G

These will increase the track width slightly, but should reduce the wheel/tire to fender clearance.

Thanks for getting back to me.. When I did my wheel/tire package I didn't think of the control arms upgrade and now I dont think I can do it my offsets... Aren't my 135is Msport package arm's alluminum? I'm just currious...


Will the same thing happen with the rear control arms?
I have those already and I'll be putting them in this week... I just want to make sure that I don't run into any issues.

Yes, all front control arms are aluminum, M or not.

I'm in the same boat right now, did it make your tire to fender clearance better or worse?

I have the rear ones and custom toe links.. amazing difference. I have the e93 front sway and the m3 front strut brace..


I bought my front control arms from a friend and they are going on Friday and aligned same day.. from what I understand they only increase track width on the bottom and the tire still shoots up into the fender not at it with the increased camber..


I'll let you know this weekend..

Wish you could source the rear m3 control arm kit from TRW instead of the more expensive BMW option.
