M3 suspension swap?



Hey guys, need to do some suspension work to my '98 328i and was considering upgrading to M3 parts. Was wondering if the M struts/springs/mounts are a direct bolt on to my stock front end, or are there other parts I would need to buy?

This should clear things up for you. You do need other things, it is not (for the most part) a direct bolt on upgrade.

Yes theyre a direct bolt on. Do not listen to the guy above.

Then you can either use your 3 series swaybar links or get the M3 ones which mount to the strut.

My apologies, I was thinking brakes, not suspension.
