To get the benefit of the M3 lower control arms on an e87 would I need the M3 tension struts as well ? Or would it be a big improvement on its own ?

Hello all!

A newbie here from Holland :D

I have a question about ordering the M3 control arms... i see a lot of prices which vary a LOT! Leebmann24 prices are currently € 132 each. But looking at Amazon, they're only € 65 each!

Which gets me doubting about the orginality from the Amazon arms... has anyone odered them from Amazon.de?

If you get the TRW branded ones from amazon the lower control arm (that gives the negative camber) are same as oem just with M badge ground off, these are what i fitted ot my old 130i and my current 135i with no issues, i paid around £60 each i think from memory but price does go up and down sometimes.

Those Leebman ones you mention are probably in a BMW box with M logo still visible, up to you if you think thats worth a premium :)
