Megan racing control arms

I just ordered some Megan racing adjustable control arms for my 325i sedan. Are they any good ? What are the camber ranges ? They only tell you the max and min length, no degree measurements
They say that the min length from mid bolts is 21.5" and the max is 22.75"- can someone give me the degree range from that?

You ordered these without knowing if "they are any good"? Maybe you should do some research before you spend your money.

They will work, most of these Chinese clones have a +1 / -3 degrees on camber. This should allow you to correct or add what you need.

agreed they are low end, but they will do this particular job. To do the same job with a quality name brand puts you at 300 to 400$ bucks.

If you are referring to these they have almost a 100% chance of being manufactured in China. https://thmotorsports.com/i-785758.a...9dwaAhqR8P8HAQ (Click on GO TO STORE)

Notice that these look the same as your Megan at almost 3 times less the price. They also will do the job. http://www.ebay.com/itm/For-BMW-3-Se...NYU5i8&vxp=mtr

You are correct sir. Better don your flamesuit before you post pics.

They've already been cloning for years. Hence the population problem. I'm not going to say they all look the same though.

OP is referring to the rear lower control arms, not the front ones you mentioned.
