BMW's supply of the genuine ZHP retro fit kit has been completely depleted according to our sources.

The genuine BMW kits which I have seen sell recently were thanks to a dealer or supplier having one sitting on the shelf collecting dust waiting on someone to ask for it.

it's a good thing you're answering the questions in this thread...
made me look on your website for these parts instead of elsewhere that i originally looked because of a link in another thread

so would you recommend the meyle brand stuff?

http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...unt/ES2075240/
rear shock mounts with plate and stuff

http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...Mount/ES10791/
front shock mounts

http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...ings/ES205223/
control arm bushings with housing

^ are these for the FRONT control arms? there's a section for rear control arms... front control arm only has the expensive performance set
and then these are listed under "lower control arm" ... is it a separate part?

They probably had it hanging out on their shelf. Most dealerships are not going to try to be crafty.

The Meyle parts are great, with most of their parts the OEM design is followed but beefed up a little. I highly suggest them if you are looking at aftermarket components.

THESE are for the fronts.

I was an idiot not to buy the zhp suspension kit while it was available.
No way I'm getting the shock kit available now - about the same stuff minus the control arms for about the same price.
I'll have to buy the control arms kit and coilovers (most likely KW V1) - a lot more expensive, but at least a better option.

I have called the BMW dealer in Las Vegas (after placing an on-line order) just to find out they actually DID NOT have the kit in stock (website showed as available) I don't have to tell you how disappointed I was. But I got a lead on a kit down in CA. After calling them up I found out the kit they had was actually put on "hold" for a customer but somehow they were able to track one down for me. Give them a call and ask for Zach; he has gone an extra mile helping me out (714) 835-3171.

finally got around to ordering and receiving my shock mounts and control arm bushings
taking the car in tomorrow early ... hopefully the entire suspension swap can be done in a single day

btw... i ordered meyle front strut mounts ... but i received sachs brand ones
(the meyle ones are backordered on the website now)
price wise, the sachs are more expensive... so did i come out ahead? sachs > meyle?
