MOTON Suspension

Does anyone know if there's an M3 with a MOTON Suspension already installed??

I was really wondering this because i had a E46 M3 with a Moton and that was really the best handling iI have ever felt, but i changed sway bars, bushings and every lnk you can imagine. Most of this parts i haven't seen for the new M3 so any info please..

(I know that when you go with a Moton suspension there's a lot of building to do, but if parts like sway bars etc are not available for the new M3 then theres no point)

According to moton's website, there is nothing out for the e9x m3's yet. Motons are the best of the best you can get for track and street use. I hope the Clubsports get developed soon. Post pics of your setup on the e46!! What parts did you install in the suspension and on the rest of the car? RTAB's, RSM's, etc., etc.?

Haven't seen anything, but AST is a good alternative...don't forget though, you'll need to address camber, roll center, sways, and so on. Good luck!

+1 for AST but if you have the money then get the Motons.

Ive made a search of my pics and i can't find them
sorry for that (they where on my old computer) you can check the website of my mechanic which is www.oscarvelez.com
these are his specs as a mechanic: they are on the website

Oscar Velez is a Technical Advisor for the BMW Car Club of America and provides advice throughout the United States. He is a Master Technician for ASE (Automotive Service Excellence), member of SAE Intemational (Society American Engineers for Advancing Mobility), ASA (Automotive Service Association), and ATRA (Automatic Transmissions Rebuilders Association)

I had clubsports on my E46
Ground control cambers, toe links, solid bushings all around, HR sway bars and springs, I was running 19X10.5 n the rear with 295 Michelin pilots and 19X9 Front with 265's pilots
My car was aligned on the floor using the technique for aligning their T1 circuit car

the thing with the MOTON was it use to make an awful sound which was corrected by making some Teflon spacers/covers

It took the mechanic a couple of aligments to get thing perfect and i waited like 3 mothns for all the parts to arrived plus we tried 3 different springs lbs settings, Building it up was a b..tch , but it was worth every penny and time.

Ended up spending like 8500$ for the whole thing

The 19 ,s wheels on the E46 behave so good I'm not convinced of 20's on the E92
