My ride also has Koni FSD shocks and struts, plus Eibach lowering springs and ZHP 18" wheels. It seems firmly planted to the road, taking foothill curves and wiggles in the pavement without a hint of wander.

I read this entire thread and did not see a mention--M-sports have some kind of M-type suspension components. But RealOEM does not list the M bushings numbers as factory in my car. I take it that means there is no hope that they are indeed already in place?

Thanks Dack for the good info and advice. I have spent many hours just reading on the forum and have gleaned a lot from you and many others.

John - the M-sport package does not change the subframe bushings. Unless the previous owner did them when he/she did the shocks/springs etc. Only way to know is to take a close look at the bushings, and even then may not be obvious if they are upgraded to M3 bushings without taking off one of the bolts and looking at the bushing itself.

More than likely they are upgrade!
