KYB struts, Meyle tie rod assembly from FCP...

I just want to get my car to stock. I have no plans on putting my car on the track and the most I may do is upgrade to some 17” or 18” wheels...I currently need to replace struts and tie rods in order to get an alignment..I’m going cheap because well, I don’t have but so much money and I need a few other things such as a window regulator and some trim pieces.....are kyb and meyle ok? Perhaps sachs struts and lemforder for a few bucks more? I assume these parts are ok because they are sold and fcp euro a company I trust.

While I don't have KYB struts on any BMW, I haven't had any trouble with them on other cars.

My local suspension shop does free inspections for wear and alignment. It's possible you may need only outer tie rod ends, which would be a lot cheaper than replacing the whole tie rod assemblies. It might be something to consider if you're looking carefully at cost.

FCP European must be confidante that those parts are of reasonable quality as they are offering ‘Lifetime Warranty’ on them.
