    hi guys im about to order a set of front anti roll bar bushes and a set of wishbone bushes but need to know what size my anti roll bar is without having to get under the car in this weather!
    ive had a look on the realoem parts site and its saying 24mm for my 328i?
    is this right or will i need to get under the car and measure the roll bar!!
    also theres a choice of either ECCENTRIC OR CONCENTRIC for the wishbone bushes?
    having not checked mine anyone know what they will be?
    im gonna order them from flo flex as they seem a good price and ive not read any bad comments about them?

    ok guys been searching myself and found out that eccentric are normal ones and the other type are for more adjustment and on m3s etc,think im just gonna stick with the standard eccentric type so thats sorted!
    now the roll bar size ive double checked on the realoem site and its saying my roll bar is 24mm unless its msport suspension which is 24.5 or 25mm,anyone on here can confirm it for me as i got to get these ordered and want them asap!!!

    Sorry to pick this thread up late.

    Where are you intending on buying these as I know stocks may be a little low due to a fire at the Powerflex premisses.

    hi mate im not going for the powerflex,im going for flo flex ones who are advertising them on ebay at moment,from what ive read theres no bad comments about them and theyre a wee bit cheaper than powerflex ones if you can get them like you say coz of the fire at their factory!

    The only way of know of measuring the ant-roll bar is to use a vernier gauge or try to measure as accurately as possible with a ruler

    yeah i was hoping not to have to do that in this cold cold weather as that would mean venturing out of my nice and toasty house for a few mins!!!
    was hoping somone might know on here but suppose i'll only know for sure if i go out and measure it myself,im just a lazy sod!!
