Coolio 8) Those subframe inserts, with the added load of the lca's, still feel adequate?

Love it! And what a quality mod list - looks great on the OZ Ultraleggeras too.

How do you find the upgraded rear bar with the M3 front? I have the M3 front only currently.

Thicker rear bar makes a massive difference, worth every penny!

Sub frame inserts work great no need for full m3 bushes imo

Is there a Beechdean connection? A mate of mine does strategy for them in the ELMS Endurance races.

I'm keeping the car now, there's nothing I want to replace it with , I did fancy a v8 m3 but I can't justify the extra out lay.
My be I could shoe horn a s65 lump in the 130 ?
