If you get an answer, let me know please. I would be interested in it as well. I know he hasn't been on the board a long time, but I would probably buy one too, might make it worth more of his time.

Yeah, I am debating on going with the Powerflex or the Meyle HD bushings myself. Usually go with Poly bushings on my past M cars, but not sure how much it would help or hurt in this application.

That's not a bad price. Probably worth it in the end. But if you do decide to DIY, I can help if you have any questions. I just did this among other things this past month.
