You do the diff, subframe bushings at the same time. I got a quote from Vorshlag at 8-10 hours. So thats $600-800. No idea where you're getting this $3k+. The diff itself, the complete pumpkin, is $1900.

There's no reason anyone with hand tools can't install coilovers themselves. Corner weighting + alignment costs $200-250. Come on. Besides - do M3's come corner weighted from the factory on their progressive non adjustable springs?

M3 arms are bolt-on... subframe bushings are addressed above.

The FMIC and DP cost $800... so who is charging you $2200 for an install of these items?

M3 brakes have bigger rotors but similarly horrible calipers as 335's. Both can get away with stock calipers with good rotors/race pads, but both benefit greatly from BBK's. No difference here.

Steering ratio? Seriously? M3 sport seats are really no different than the sport seats in the 335.

We replaced the bushings that matter when we did subframe bushings and M3 control arms, or did you forget?

Oh I get it. You're one of those M3 > all people.

It has more hp, its lighter, lower cg, wider, fits bigger tires, more torque throughout the rev range, and cheaper parts/easier to make big power.

In which way is it not better?

You're just one of those silly M3 > all people, so you don't understand why people would want to work on a 335 or a 330i (like the OP). Now that we understand who and what you are, your comments make a lot more sense.

Good day sir.
