I had Hotchkis, wouldn't do it again. They certainly give the car a more buttoned down feel, but they don't improve grip as much as you initially feel like they do. Also the endlinks wouldn't stay tight until I double nutted them with red loctite.

I have a 25/20 setup now from the Z4 M-Sport front/E46 convertible/Xi rear, all OEM parts, and it's a nice upgrade and I have no complaints.

Hotchkis bars are hollow- so 30mm isn't what you think it is. For the most part I do agree though.
Turner Motorsport, they certainly increased grip and reduced under steer.
