Dinan bushing set

I am looking for some input to see if people have tried and like the Dinan bushing set. I know most go with the m3 subframe bushings, but I'd like to know how the Dinan may stack up.

Those Dinan bushings are the M3 parts.

Yeah I believe they've just combined the two different parts into a package. Looks identical to the m3 bits I have.

Thanks. I thought so but wasn't sure. Am I wrong that the control arms look like the upper and not the lower as stated?

Yeah they look identical to my front upper control arm kit minus the tension rods and headlight regulating rod

Not sure why they state lower.

Yep Dinan uses a lot of OEM M3 parts in their suspension upgrade packages.

Alternates to the M3 subframe bushings include the Powerflex urethane and TMS solid delrin or aluminum. I have the OEM M3 subframe bushings, no complaints.
