For the non-psychotic-autox-freaks among us, two additional items:

If nobody here wants them, they're going on flea-bay.

OEM M3 strut brace. Excellent condition. I bought one earlier when I found out my strut towers were crowned, and I ended up buying two by mistake (I commited to two people, and they both agreed so I sucked it up and took both). It has all parts (including the plastic cover thingies) but does not have the 6 bolts you need. They can be purchased from any dealer but are fairly expensive (like $5/bolt and you need 6 of them). Price on this varies, but I paid $180+shipping and so that's what I'm asking.

OEM M3 steering wheel. Used for about 1 year. Looks new. I took it off because it isn't SCCA legal. Asking $300 shipped. (I already sold it once for $320 shipped here but the buyer backed out before I left for vacation.

No.

These are all extra parts.

The koni's are the rear spares, which I've decided I don't need. The wets are the only questionable sale, but I really don't see a scenario where I need them in the next couple years, and by then they'll be dried out and useless.

Um, the short answer is generally no with a few qualified yeses.

Within the long answer, there would be a section that says that cars built on the same platform may be able to interchange them but that would be followed by a section asking if you would really want to. In some cases, the answer may still be yes.

What's the physical difference between ShockA that only fits on this car, and ShockA that only fits on that car? Length?

Sorry for the elementary questions. I know so little about suspensions.

Then there's the rebound and compression rates.

Pretty much everything.
