    I have a non sport but I intend lowering it.

    I need a wishbone so will change the pair.

    I understand the cheaper 'pattern' wishbones don't last very long but is Febi (Bilstein) on par with Lemforder or not ?

    Also for the relatively small price difference is it worth upgrading to the Sport spec wishbones ?

    It seems they fit and the difference is they are stronger with stronger ball joints so worthwhile adding I presume.

    Also are there any prefered suppliers ?

    Thanks

    Get Lemforder as they are a BMW approved make. Sport wishbones will make it a harsher ride, but well suited for sports suspension...so if you are lowering, then it may be a good idea . You can pick up normal Lemforder ones from ECP or pay an extortionate amount for sports ones.
