    Thanks for pointing me to this thread RYM, much appreciated!

    Just noticed your Flo Flex and Power Flex links go to the same page

    I think I shall be splashing the cash out on some FloFlex bush kits, not sure of the Polish made StrongFlex, although their diagrams seem to explain things clearer...

    These should come in very handy while I overhaul the front and rear axles. Then to look for some exhaust hangers, pillow top mounts and rogue engineering rear mounts. Oh the joys of owning a BMW!

    You might have problems getting powrflex bushes, unless someone has them in stock...
    Have a look at the website...

    http://www.powerflex.co.uk/

    :(

    Hope everyone was ok.

    Ordered some Flo-Flex bushes yesterday (Monday) at around 1pm, and they arrived at 10am this morning (Tuesday). Must say they're on the ball over there in the deepest darkest parts of Wales.

    Only got the front end kit at the moment, as I really need to get that rebuilt before I put the lump and box back in.

    How-To coming for the installation for those that are interest!

    I wouldn't put anything else on my coupe

    If you think your car handles like a go kart now then try adding coilovers and Eibach anti-roll bars

    Blanket, Stick and S*** all come to mind

    I did indeed. Mine are the solid type bush

    I have noticed that the new design uses an inner and outer bush that slot into each other which is not that appealing. I fitted a set of these on an E46 and found it more of a PITA.

    Brilliant upgrade though, I would recommend to anyone
