Any aftermarket sways bars out yet?

Looking to dial out all the under-steer in the car, any after-market sways in the works?

The M3 e93 uses stiffer bars. The front is 28 mm and rear is a thicker 23.5 mm rear. Sorry, i don't have any details on stiffness yet.

If want to get rid of some understeer at the limit then pop out the top mount locating pin for an additional -0.5 degrees of camber.

It's the pin at the top of the front shock. The "top-hat". There is a guide pin to fix camber angle. If you pop out that pin, you can systematically shift the upper part of the top hat toward the inside (meaning away from the fender) and this will increase the negative camber angle.

I popped the pins and picked up an extra -.4 in front. It definately helps.

I wonder if the thicker anti-sways from the ragtop would help minimize the body roll, without changing the rest of the handling character.
