I don't know but this makes more since.
Gotta agree with Perk on this one! I knew what you meant from the beginning. Its very likely they are the same rubber compound in each.

I'd also say that 3/4" on a suspension component is acceptable. We might drive the "ultimate driving machine" but at the end of the day it is still a mass-produced vehicle intended to last a couple hundred thousand miles.

Brad, I dont have a laptop! I use google on my phone though

solid/poly bushings should last longer than the OEM compound. They were designed mainly to keep NVH to a minimum.

And yes, those prices I posted were correct. The Non-M bushings are only about $10 more than the M3 bushings for the complete sets.

HUH? Manufacturers/Vendors specifically say how they increase NVH.

Absolutely no space between those ports(?) for the wrap! And it doesnt help you kept bleeding everywhere. You cant do anything without cutting yourself up.

Nice, throw up some pics! I'm gonna run a 100 shot vs you at the meet. Never sprayed that much hope she holds together.... On second thought, dude your car is a beast. I'm praying to not embarrass myself, hope I can keep up!

This might sound retarded, but I gotta get criticized somewhere, might as well be here!

So most tint laws are worded to say like "80% of light must pass through the window" or some ****, which leads people to using 20% tint on the whole window. But what if you did limo tent on all but a corner that was clear? Maybe like a 2-4" strip of clear at the top of the window? Da fuq?

Yeah, i picked up a kit that turner sells. It's got a sachs he clutch and pressure plate paired with a jb racing lightweight flywheel. It supposed to allow for oem like pedal feel which I Liked.
