    Quarry motors in Sheffield and Alexanders of Somerset are the largest BMW breakers in the UK, sometimes it is just easier to pick up the dog and bone

    I'm currently looking for some reconditioned M-sport suspension upgrades, front wishbones/shocks etc,

    However I would welcome any suggestions for future queries too,

    Cheers man.

    For suspension stuff I wouldn't be looking at refurbed mate. You couldn't go wrong with some Meyle HD control arms and some OEM shocks from somewhere like carpartsforless. (Sister company of ECP). I managed to get my from Sachs shocks for £120 for both fronts. (Non M-sport tho).
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    Would agree with Adam, BMW will tell you the M-Sport wishbones etc. are different but as one of the more experienced members found out, Meyle (who make some of the best aftermarket spares) state there is no difference between normal a M-Sport suspension parts, only the springs and shocks.

    It would therefore be easier fit a decent coil over kit with adjustable front struts. One of the forum members Cendrian did a great write up on fitting a coil over kit to his E46 compact.

    If you want new wishbones and bushes, Meyle HD are a good for wishbone control arm bushes (lollipop's) and rear trailing arm bushes (I have a pair unused for a tenner if you want) for a stiffer ride you can use Powerflex, they have mixed reviews, some love em, other hate them

    Thanks for the advice guys, I have a list of things that BMW state are for the Msport package, however I cant see the difference in the wishbones myself,

    Ill probably go with the shocks and springs for now.
