true, however, I am not sure how long the turbo's last...... I saw one for sale and he said they were replaced at 40-50k miles. I would have no problem with getting one if I had CPO and extended warranty covering the turbos.

all pullies and belt packages are $300-$400.... oem bushings are $150. I would rather buy that stuff first than $450 coilovers.... even though it is a good deal.

CAB both sides. - 82
http://www.bmaparts.com/item.wws?sku...1923&mfr=Meyle Heavy Duty&weight=3.420

or

full control arms with bushing both sides - total $300
http://www.bmaparts.com/item.wws?sku...2081&mfr=Meyle Heavy Duty&weight=6.420
http://www.bmaparts.com/item.wws?sku...1921&mfr=Meyle Heavy Duty&weight=6.360

Pullies:
are a little confusing last 7 of your vin would make it easier to find the right one. but I would estimate another $100 total for pullies and tensioner. doesnt include belts.

Yes, very difficult to find, but BBS made more sets for people racing with the wheels and I already have a source. Just need the fenders and centerlock adapters to fit them, lawl.

If only I could get my hands on a P60B40, lol. E46 M3 GTR Sedan!

I was looking at modbargains , which are tuner motorsports for $300 but I dont think the package comes with everything.

Also looking at tischer, which is oem and comes with everything and the serp belt for $400.

The cabs were also oem from tischer and they were $150 shipped.
