    Hi All,
    I have an E46 330ci Sport Convertible with 24mm Front ARB. I just fitted an M3 Coupe 26mm ARB. It fitted perfectly but I noticed that they were slightly different in shape. The drop arms for both these models are the same part number. I was concerned that as they are a different shape will I have actually made the cornering characteristics worse. I occasionally go down the ring and wanted to stiffen up the front in preparation for my next lap. Have I done the wrong thing fitting an M3 Coupe ARB to a 330ci Convertible?

    I think you'll find that the there may be a difference in the distance between the front wheels on the two cars. Hence the reason the front wings are different.

    How does it seem to handle? If it's better then I really wouldn't worry about it

    If it's worse then you'll just have to remove it and by an upgrade for your car from the likes of Eibach

    Only just fitted it today, so haven't had a chance to test it yet. Thanks for the reply.
