I know quite a few of you have it, but just how close is it to the e9x m3.

I priced it out to be just south of $3000 for everything (front control arms, rear bushings, rear guide rod kit, rear upper link kit, rear subframe bushings, camber conversion kit with dampers/springs for the tckline DAs). That's not too bad if it's as poised and balanced as the m3 with the edge of the tck's, but usually, initial review threads are a bit slanted because, well, newness (and the fact that it came out of your pocket) makes you want to think everything is fantastic.

I'd probably wait until early next spring, because I need to look into a secondary oil cooler first and i'm looking at second cars, but I like to plan ahead.

So, now that the newness has settled, do you feel it was worth it? Parts you think are/aren't necessary?
You know I am only a phone call away!

The M3 suspension components will be a good match for the TCK DA's you have.
