Touched base with Rob down at Active when we heard about this. Great to see some good wear characteristics on a heavy workload car. 20k miles in 6 months always makes me wonder how the bearings hold up when they are driven that hard Ali's 19k mileage OEM 702/703 bearings are on the right here under the blue for reference, and from the pics look to have about about twice the wear as the WPCs. Nothing like some good data ! BE's will certainly work great for what I'm sure will be another epic build from you and Active. Maybe we can have a nice, friendly, E90 shootout this spring.... Slipstream '19 .... e90 vs e90 best 1/4, best 1/2 ? wink,wink lol
