You should really consider upgrading your shocks and springs as well if you are already doing the swaybars. Piece by piece upgrades generally end up being more trouble than they are worth in the end and offer a marginal performance increase at best, if not hurting it. The E30 M3 Dinan stage II suspension upgrade seems the best solution for you in this case. It costs $1284 (with Bilsteins) and is a great example of a robust upgrade package. For another $249 on top of that you can go stage III, which includes front camber plates in addition to the springs, struts and swaybars. I will be going to visit Steve Dinan himself here in Mountain View very soon for my Stage III :^)

Hope this helps.

Take care

A friend of mine said that Racing Dynamic swaybars on my 91 M3 would result a night and day difference when it comes to cornering. My car is used only on streets. I have performed no other suspension modifications. Id like to make the car tighter but am wondering what effect it will have on my daily driving. Will the swaybars make the ride to firm and unbearable over bumps?; or will it just reduce body lean? Any comments on these swaybars pro or con are really appreciated. Thanks alot.
