Got the vehicle back from the shop, with alignment completed to M3 specs. With the new suspension, the car is rock solid and a hoot to drive. Oil leaks are gone, and all seems well. There's an...

If I may ask, what mods did you do to your engine support bar? I just cranked my upright coupler tight and pinched it into position. Looks like the J bolt under load should prevent it from rotating...
