Joanne L’s 2004 BMW E46 M3 Car of the MonthJoanne L’s 2004 BMW E46 M3:

Motor Mounts, Poly 95A
E21 Trans Mount Upgrade
Flex Shaft Coupling
Diff Bushings, Poly 95A
FCABs, Poly 90A
Brake, Clutch Pedal Bushings

Joanne’s brother says “I did some online research and found some forum members suggest AKG for upgrades. Went over what type would be best for her and added some other maintenance parts that we knew we could use and ordered online. After replacing all the bushings and upgrading to coil over suspension and a corner balance from a local performance shop, the car felt like a brand new car off the lot. Steering feels so precise, the pedals have no play and feel solid with the bushings. No more vibration slop from the drivetrain. The car is at its best with AKG.”

The adjustable rear lower control arms are great quality, better than any I’ve seen for the price. Thanks AKG for great products!”

Marcus P's 2003 BMW E46 330i ZHP, AKG February 2014 Car of the Month

Marcus P’s 2003 BMW E46 330i ZHP:

Poly 90A Rear Trailing Arm Bushings
Poly 85A Front Control Arm Bushings

Marcus says “I have owned this car now for nearly 8 years and nearly 100,000 miles. The AKG Poly 90A RTABs took care of my rear-wheel movement issue. It feels like they are helping put the power down to the pavement also; an amazing improvement from stock. The AKG Poly 85A FCABs (purchased pre-installed in lollipops) corrected my steering wheel jerk while under heavy breaking at high speeds. Swapping the lollipops (core return) was a breeze. This is now my 3rd set of FCABs (first two both OEM), I am looking forward to these lasting longer than OEM with the additional performance benefits that Poly brings to the table.”

The RTAB pocket reinforcements give me the peace of mind that no failures will occur. Thanks for quality products and great service over the years!”
