Okay. Let me ask one question here. If you are so worried about ride quality of your car then why do you want to add sway bars? It can't be because the car leans to much in turns with the stock suspension because it does not. The stock suspension is very compliant on both the track and street.

I "upgraded" my suspension in stages.

1. With the ACS sways, the car corners much flatter. Very noticable and some time later when I sat in a stock M3, it felt like a boat. An M3 doesn't lean much compared to many cars but a larger sway bar equipped M3 leans even less.

2. The sways let you dial out understeer.

3. I didn't notice any deterioration in ride quality.

IMO, the M3 should have come with the X-Brace and 26/24 sways from the fatory.
