Turn in should be pretty sharp with RFT's; at least that's what I remember and missed when I switched to traditional tires. M3 arms work fine with oem springs and dampers but may be a bit hard with RFT's. I'd just replace the upper control arm (tension link) bushings or the whole link with Meyle HD if you're going to stick with RFT's; they're harder durometer rubber than oem but not as hard as M3 and will provide better steering and braking feel.
