M3 front control arms (Upper and lower) - A couple of $hundred less than everywhere


latest easily available kit - all parts in a single page:

Front Tension Strut - Left Mfg#: 31102283575~TRW
Front Tension Strut - Right Mfg#: 31102283576~TRW
Front Control Arm - Left Mfg#: 31102283577~TRW
Front Control Arm - Right Mfg#: 31102283578~TRW
Headlight Adjustment Rod - Front Mfg#: 37142283867

Sub Total: $375.27 Shipping: $86.05 Total: $461.32

i'm pretty sure that's as cheap as it gets

also, i'm going to have to give a shout out to Doug @ Turner for otherwise exemplary service assistance and extremely quick replies, dealing with my email query in real time

sadly, th price difference of $461 shipped to $7xx shipped is WAY too high for me to consider OEBMW parts.. even if i don't get an ///M logo, i'm not driving an M car, my vin doesn't say i am, but i 'm more than happy to go around corners faster than one

Places like turner and the like have the kits for $599 plus post or thereabouts


"They are OEM as stated in the listing, OEM means original equipment manufacutre, Which means they are made by the same company that makes them for bmw. In this case TRW. Yes they do include the bushing as well.


Max @ Oembimmerparts "Where the BMW Enthusiasts Purchase Parts""
confirmation they're the real thing.

ED: since it doesn't include the headlight rod, somewhere like - looks like it's only a $10-$15 item, nothing to stress over or make this any less of a bargain..
