Stock Sways vs. aftermarket

Is there a noticeable difference between the stock sways that are on the Sport package 330i's and an aftermarket set? The reason I am asking, is that I am interested in the UUC sways now that the store has them in stock. I just want to get some opinions of those of you that have upgraded. Thanks.

i was planning on getting sways but i heard that they make the car so stiff that it does not handle good in rain or other weather conditions. any truth to this? car is a daily driver and i like taken exits quick even in the rain wouldnt want to lose that. i love to scare people.

UUC Sways were the best mod I did to my car...

It will not harm your ride quality and the improvement over OEM sways is very noticable. Your car will corner very flat. They are also adjustable so you can tune the suspension to your liking.

I've never heard that before regarding the E46...

I'd imagine you'd have more problems with 333HP in the rain compared to the stiffness from upgraded sway bars...of course, that's a problem I wouldn't mind having! :tongue:

Thanks guys. You have convinced me to order the UUC sways. And while I am shopping in store, I think the UUC automatic pedals would like nice as well.

Anyone know if UUC is coming out with a dead pedal?
