Never used them, but looks like a decent price for a quality camber kit.

I got mine from Bavarian Autosport and they were quite a bit more. It looks like a good deal.

Compared to Bav Auto they're a steal!

to be quite honest.. they suck.
That turbo E30 on the cover is my buddie's Brandon. I have done business with bmw bushings and they are great peple... but the bushings wore our badly.

Has any one tried the kits from eibach or intrax?? I just cant justify paying $260 for the kit from BAV auto. I know in the long run it will save my tires but $260!

After further research, the too good to be true price for those kits are for only one wheel/side so doubling the price if you want to correct both left and right sides. So the eibach kit would actually cost more than BAV auto.

I have the BavAuto camber kits (re-branded K-Macks, I believe) for front and rear, and while the rears are decent, I wish that I had bought the Ground Control adjustable plates for the front. They're not much more expensive, and you can adjust them without having to put the car on an alignment rack. At some point I'm going to replace them, because I've found that with the K-Macks, the front end comes out of alignment more frequently than before I swapped the stock sport suspension for coilovers. Obviously there's more stress on the plates with the car lowered.

With the GC plates, the car might come out of alignment just as easily, but at least you can re-adjust them intelligently thanks to the settings marked on the plates.

I think these guys took my money and ran. The kit wasn't here two weeks before I left for India. I'm still here, so I don't know if they are waiting at home. Their website is gone, and they never even had a phone #, only an e-mail address; very shady. Gonna dispute the purchase through Paypal and Amex.

That sucks a$$ dude.

So I guess this explains why you did not return my call last week (still in India...).

Yeah still here in India. I am flying back Saturday. If you wanna hookup Sunday for a bit, we can talk.

I asked Clex if he had the time to help me install Cruise Control, OBC and fog lights, but he doesn't have the time. Also, need to re-look at the dog bones rubbing my axles.

Let me know if Sunday is good.

Oh, and about the BMWBUSHINGS, they refunded me my money immediately after paying on Paypal; says they are not available.

Not sure about Sunday yet; I have a Land-Rover event (Celtic festival) on Saturday, and plenty of work to do to the car for Sunday, so perhaps next week (assuming you are on the island).

Besides, I'm sure your girlfriend has plans for you on Sunday after being away so long...:wink:

nice to hear you got your loot back. I ordered, and then cancelled and they refunded my $ right away.

HEY!!!!:mad:

I was recommended that site by a fellow member. Turns out they refunded my money as soon as I made payment; since they claim to not offer this any more.

I bought the BavAuto rear camber kit instead.
