FS: OE BMW FCABS with lollipops with 3k miles on them
 
Just replaced my OE BMW front control arm bushings today with Powerflexes after running them for 3k miles. The bushings seem fine and pulled out nicely. No rips/tears/leaks. If you don't like 'em, the lollipops can still be used.

Are these 60mm or 66mm FCABs? Any pics?

Also what is your opinion on the difference between stock FCABs and the PowerFlex version? Is there more vibration, road noise, firm handling? Interested in your thoughts as I am defeating stock FCABs or PowerFlex. Thank you!

66mm FCABS. Bought from dealer. Pic below.

Powerflexes have slightly more vibration over bumps and slightly firmer handling in general. No change in road noise. If you're looking for a best-bang-for-your-buck handling improvement, consider some sway bars, as FCABs won't help much in that department.

Bump. I might be able to remove the bushings, and just sell the lollipops...
