Dan, no problem at all with getting the numbers mixed up...too many of those little millimeters flying around anyway, especially that .6mm!

If your beef is that a company has misrepresented the size of their swaybars, that's different. Why didn't you say so to begin with? I thought you were saying the ever so slightly smaller bar diameter would make a difference in the car's handling! The point that it won't make any difference in handling was my intentions.

Since I have no connection with any car related aftermarket company I'm not the one you should address about a product being misrepresented and maybe you weren't but some people seem to think I'm affiliated with an aftermarket company! I will say this; if it were me and knowing what I know about there not being any difference in how the car would handle, I would consider the size difference as a non-issue, but that's up to you. My M3 has the stock OE swaybars...but I wouldn't hesitate for a moment using 25.4mm/23.7mm versus the 26mm/24mm.

Since you didn't mention anything about the car's handling in your last post I take it that you agree there would be no difference in handling between the two swaybar sets? If this is correct, then you must "only" have an issue with the advertising being incorrect by .023622" diameter. That's fine...if it means that much to you, then tell that to someone at the company that sells them. I must ask you however, do you normally make such an issue out of such small and insignificant matters often?

Bob, I will put it in words that you can understand...

UUC states on their website that their swaybars are 26mm/24mm. When in reality it is 25.4mm/23.7mm.

I redid the calculations before your post. So please excuse for getting the numbers mixed up. Read my post "Correction, please excuse" for the real numbers.
