Re: Rear subframe bush inserts

The voids are a different shape, I don't know if that makes them stiffer or softer though?

Re: Rear subframe bush inserts

The 'Auto' bushes are rare on Manual cars, I'm really surprised markhurley's were that type.

Re: Worth it?

I suspect you'd get far quicker lap times spending a grand on decent coilovers instead, assuming you're still on the standard M Sport crap.

There are some keenly priced KW V3's in the Parts section currently.

What's 58 plate, for us metric people?
September 2008 - March 2009.

Not the best system for working out the age of a car, as that's the registration date, not the manufacture date. It could have been manufactured in 2005, and sat in a field for 3 years!

Re: wheels too big??

brilliant!! thank you, and as i said it then wouldn't matter if i went 18's or 19's??? Wheel diameter (17" / 19" / whatever) has nothing to do with wheel fitment (provided they will fit over your brakes - you couldn't fit 16" wheels for example, they would hit your brake calipers.) The three dimens...

Seems expensive to me too. I use Moris, about £125 the last time, iirc. £1k excess.

Re: E87 M3 parts

Stock engine mounts should be fine really.

I bought my E90 M3 front ARB (and horseshoes/bushes) new via Cotswolds, wasn't very expensive.

Re: Rear subframe bush inserts

There are a few exceptions, such as very early cars, and some automatics. But 98% will be the same.

Re: wheels too big??

ET40 should be fine with 245mm rubber.

If you want to go to 255mm rears I'd go at least ET45.

Nah, make has never come into it. They should be the correct size, and have at least 3mm of tread.

Re: Bedford TD 17th of Feb

I'd be considering a slightly firmer front ARB.

Odd. Doesn't like fitment for E81 130i. 'does not fit this vehicle'
What are the part numbers of your standard rear subframe bushes on Realoem? Should be the same as every other E87/81 ?
