FS: M3 / 1M Front Control Arm Kit

Item Interest
I've had HPAutowerks' M3 Front Control Arm Kit on my 135i for ~10,000 miles and am now parting it out before I move on to a new car. The parts are in the original box HPA sent to me and were installed and removed by Euro Auto Spot, anyone in San Diego can tell you they're a top notch shop.

The M3 control arms (wishbones and tension rods) are identical to the ones used on the 1M and will give you around -.75 degrees camber and the stiffer bushings give you a lot more steering feel. I really liked the changes this simple mod made to my car, but it would be even better if you also get the rear M3 parts (I never got around to finishing my M3 suspension conversion).

Everything you need to install these on a 1 or 3 series is included, but you will need an alignment. This kit is selling for $600 new so I'm asking $400 + shipping.

So these are the M3 parts? Front wishbones, tension rods, and the headlight adjuster? Have these been shaved to fit your 135i or did you have the subframe shaved a bit?

Nothing was shaved, they fit fine. To answer the other questions, install takes 1 hour so whatever your shop charges for hourly labor and I can ship them anywhere you want.

They are still available for sale.

You two can play 1,000 rounds of rock-paper-scissors, meanwhile I'll just log onto my PayPal . . .
