The do look good but honestly given the price you expect them to be covered in diamonds. I am sure they will put a huge smile on my face corner after corner!

I will do my best at a review when the time comes. The car will be completely different than the typical stock E92 M3..........about 1000lbs. lighter (E46 M3 race car)

Very nice! I'm ordering mine later this week but I'll probably get the 2 way. They can be upgraded to three way later for the same difference in price.

Nice looking good! I'm also putting a set of 2-ways on my e46 m3 too.

Sickest suspension ever!!

MCS dampers are popping everywhere these days! I can't wait to hear more reviews and impressions.

Just got my 2-ways this week, with struts designed to work with the stock perches Rears are on the car and these things are pretty damned awesome. I put some thoughts in my autocross thread.

I have experienced the MSC two-ways in a 2010 911 GT3 997.2 (from the passenger seat). It is a very capable car but the stock suspension could use improvement. And the MSC two ways did just that........and by a good margin. It completely smoothed out sections of the track that otherwise slightly upset the stock car. The wheels/tires are completely glued to the track.
Now i think the two ways would be the way to go for most. I just wanted the best and had the confidence that AR Auto Service could set it up properly. Plus bimmerworld, turner and the guys at MCS are willing to share set up and tuning info. The E92 M3 might be another story because they are still actively racing and there is just not as much info/experience out there.
I am converting the rear to coil overs.

Oh, pricing is fairly good at this point considering the design is supposed to be an improvement on the typical shim stack set up. From the MCS and bimmerworld website: "Damping characteristics are controlled precisely by controlling flow through small holes instead of forcing past traditional shim-stacks" I have heard the shim stacks can distort under heavy loads/hard hits thus not being able to control as good as you would like.


Richbot: what car are you installing the two ways on?

In for more feedback. My friend recently switched from AST's to the MCS 2-way on his e46 track car and he said it's night/day improvement.

This should make a good difference. Let us know what you think.

Dampers sure look good but it looks like they're sticking with the old HS/LS design for the 3-ways? I thought they would step up to the newer technology so there is no "cross-talk".
