Question worth the money

I just bought a 2009 328i manual trans. I know that on other cars that sway bars and strut bars help the handling of the car with out sacrificing the ride quality, Is that true with the E90? I don't want to lower the car and make to harsh ride

sway bars are more for final adjustments. I initially shared the same thought as you, but after searching and reading a lot, sways are probably the one of the last times you wanta do lol

Strut bars not needed.

Sways after other improvements, please.

Hit parade:
  • Replace runflat tires w/Michelin PSS
  • Limited Slip Differential
  • M3 rear subframe bushings
  • Matched shocks/springs
  • M3 suspension arms
