This should be great...let us know how different it is!

Also I hear the end links make a world of a difference so you should get that right now too to feel the full effects.

I installed everything, really easy honestly. Hardest part was getting the bushings in the M3 sway-bar.

What's the size difference between the stock sway bar and the M3 one? I thought that they were very similar in size. The front sway bar is the one that is small compared to the M3 version. Do you already have the M3 front sway bar?

Not that I know if, the M3 sway bar is thicker....this I one was a lot thicker than the OEM!

Quality parts OP, and I like the part list in your signature. Nicely done.

It'd be worth your while to get adjustable end-links if you are below stock ride height, otherwise the sway bar will bind.

I usually advise against the M3 rear sway if you have or are planning to get coilovers, as I think it makes the rear too inflexible. The rear needs some flex to keep power transmitting to the ground. You may be OK depending on your spring rate. Drive around with the rear sway disconnected and see how it feels. I'll likely change my rear spring rate if I find my new setup too stiff (logically I'd ditch the M3 rear sway and go back to stock but it's such a pain in the ass to drop the rear subframe; cheaper to just change springs).

thanks man, I do have adjustable endlinks, came with my coilovers....I had to make them longer and they barely worked that....stockers would have been way to short.

I think the OP is doing the front bar only.
