Lawrence’s 2002 BMW M Coupe:
Poly 75D Subframe Bushings
Poly 75D Rear Trailing Arm Bushings
Lawrence says “The rear end is much more planted compared to the worn stock bushings. No more floaty feel!”
Andrew’s 1989 E30 327i Stroker:
Poly 75D Offset FCAB
Poly 75D RTAB Set
Poly 75D Diff and Subframe mount
Poly 75D Motor and Trans mount set
Andrew says “Thanks for the help guys! Offset bushes really helped resolve castor problem with the M3 5 stud conversion.”[/row] [row]
Art’s 1995 BMW E36 M3:
Engine and Transmission Mounts, Aluminum
Art says “I opted to replace the motor and transmission mounts with the AKG aluminum set. After replacing many of the drivetrain components, I can say it was well worth taking a chance to purchase them. It’s hard to explain, but I feel that the M3 will come back to center exiting a corner a little faster than I am used to. But the sound that’s transferred into the cabin is excellent, bringing me closer to the experience of driving my car is what it’s about. Epic win.”
Jean’s 1984 318i (SCCA Solo Street Modified Class):
Engine and Transmission Mounts
Shifter Housing Bushings
Jean says “AKG Engine and Transmission mounts are keeping the drivetrain in place, the stock mounts would only last 2-3 months before failing! The shifter bushings replaced the stock OEM bushings to keep the shifter play at minimum.”
Jerime’s 1998 E36 M3:
Rear Trailing Arm Reinforcement Plates
Rear Trailing Arm Bushings – Poly 90A
Jerime says “The AKG 90a’s are absolutely silent. After having my entire rear end welded up and new bushings, it feels like a whole new car. It feels like I’m putting down more power to the ground simply because there is no rear end dumping when I gun it. A lot more confidence taking turns knowing my rear end wont throw out any moment.”
Mario’s 1989 E30 325i:
Poly 75D Rear Trailing Arm Bushings
Poly 75D Rear Subframe Bushings
Poly 75D Front Control Arm Bushings
Mario says “Great quality product, easy to find and navigate the website with installation pictures. The best is the improvement on the car handling.”
Evan’s 1999 E36 323is:
RTAB Pocket Reinforcement Plates
Polyurethane 95A Rear Subframe Bushings
Evan says “…the addition of AKG 95A Rear Subframe Bushings really tightened the rear of the car up. Couple this with the 3.46 limited slip differential that I hand-built and installed in the car and it is a blast to drive. AKG you have won my business.”
Don M’s 2000 BMW Z3 M Coupe:
Rear subframe bushings and diff mount – Poly 75D
Rear Trailing Arm Bushings
Weld-on Camber and Toe Adjustment Kit
Trans Mounts – Poly
Don says “The car is very tight now and is stuck to the track.”
BJ’s 1995 e36 M3:
Front diff mount bushing – Poly 75D
BJ says “It installed very easy and has withstood 3 years of autocross and DE abuse!”
Brad’s replica John Player Special ’85 E30 323i from Australia:
Front sway bar reinforcement kit
Rear sway bar reinforcement kit
Tie down eye set
Brad says “These AKG Motorsport parts are top quality and have provided excellent reinforcement to the suspension components – and the assistance on the website was a great guide for their installation.”[/row] [row]
Austin’s 1998 e36 M3 :
75D Subframe Bushings
75D Diff Mount Bushing
75D Rear Trailing Arm Bushings
Austin says “I just put them on and the car drives amazing!”
Don’s 1999 e36 M3 :
Front Control Arm Bushings
Don says “The front control arm bushings have vastly improved the front end feel of the car under hard cornering and initial turn in. Will definitely be buying AKG’s Subframe Bushings, Differential Support Bushings and Stage 2/3 Short Shifter during this winter’s restoration of the rear end.”[/row]
