i know of others that did the same swap and based on what they paid, AtSpeed is cheaper, believe it or not. although i wouldnt pay $210 for a custom alignment b/c i'm sure you want a car that can handle both street/track. if it were a true track only car, then a custom alignment would be the way to go

some of those M3 suspension parts arent that hard to swap yourself, but the main issue would be the bushings IMO.

the front and rear m3 parts wishbones tension strut etc i can do it myself the only thing i cant do is remove the bushings but this is just for a coilover install i guess i just have to get off my lazy ass and do it myself
