Been there, done that with my E46 M3...and the sway bars were TOO STIFF, thus they ripped out their anchoring points after multiple driving schools. Re-welding was required. Lesson: how are you going to determine that the sway bars are NOT too stiff for your suspension and TEAR THROUGH their anchoring points?

BTW...mine were installed by"EXPERTS" from the sway bar company...directly from the factory...and they were TOO STIFF (rear).

Of course if you don't go screaming around a road course track for 6 - 7 sessions, they might not crack the anchoring points.
