Yea, I had a conforti (wish I still had it for the ZHP) but I sold it when I did the trans swap to help fund some parts I needed. That and my UUC sway bars and my leather z gauges. Too bad too, those parts would make all the difference on my ZHP.

I have UUC in my car....I didn't notice that much of a difference. I think you'll have to get thicker ones to really notice unless I am so used to UUC now.... haha

Did you have suspension before you got the sways?. If so that's why you don't notice the difference.

Oh maybe that's why. I had KW V2's installed for a few months before the sways got installed. But still if I got used to KW.....shouldn't I have noticed a difference with thicker sways? Or is the difference in roll a lot more smaller than with stock suspension? Sorry I thread jacked again..

Lol sorry Smolck for thread jackage also.
Yeah basically you won't notice it because your coilovers eliminate most of the body roll you were use to with stock suspension. Adding the sways onto already amazing suspension is just basically "completing your suspension kit".

I noticed a huge difference when I put the UUC sways on my car. And it had ZHP sways before.

I kept some stuff off it, but I put it in my 16 year old niece's car (she has a 99 323i too).

Where do you think "uncle smolck" learned how to wrench? From my brother-in-law aka "her daddy". His wife backed into the car and smashed the door and he replaced it all by himself. I have been called in for help with other stuff, but not often.

I gave her my trim (cf vinyl wrapped), brand new battery, gauge rings, aftermarket stereo and sub woofer and box. Now she jams to her ipod and it sounds really good.

Wow. End of an era.

Congrats on the new ride.
__________________
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".

After the last year with that car, it was more like the end of a nightmare. And I woke up to Christy Brinkley!

This is just the beginning!
