Once the stock bushings start to wear out, these items would be a good upgrade, but for a new platform like the e90, I'd argue that they would produce any tangible difference.
I agree. Some think stiffer is always better (that's what she said) but definitely not the case as I've found out with the poly E46 RTABs. I do think that some well thought out upgrades will make a the solid rear subframe bushings.

The E9X seems to like to rotate more than the E46 in stock form...which is what most people try to achieve in the E46 through upgrades...less understeer.

I think this car is surprisingly tail happy for a BMW. Which is why I want to try the toe links.
