I wonder why they removed the IE front sway bar but left the bracket. I do see one in the factory location though.

My thoughts exactly.  Would only change a handful of things. Should bring big money.

More BaT porn... wicked!   But I do home that "no tii's were harmed during the building of this M2".  I suppose we all can think of a few things we would have done differently, but if it was made using the Aardvarc recipe, it's got to be a tasty dish.

 

that garage, though?  There is a fine line between "dealer" and "hoarder".  😵

Frankly I don’t get it. Why do all those mods to only have a car with non-functioning wipers and heat (per the blurb on BaT)?

Some builds go straight for the push-the-buttons column and so many just eat it up. #1 being anything S14 immediately people start drooling.  But I say how was it all assembled? The S14 swap is not just a drop in procedure. When you look closely-as someone above mentioned the Ireland Engineering sway bar mounts but no sway bar.  At first blush I saw that the ball joints are improperly installed.  Who knows what else was done to just shine it up. 

Don't always believe the hype.

and then there is this-just because the label is upside down don't mean that's how you install it.

As I’ve just done the complete suspension front and back, much of this underneath is just plane wrong.  Conkitchen’s above pics, that upside bushing has to have a decent effect I would imagine.  

Missing washer here could have a big issue down the raod.

Looks like a lot of sloppy work.

The one with a split in half bushing and is missing the upper between the bar and the link?

This one just doesn't light me up, as stated lots of stuff installed wrong and for the money it will bring I'd like strut caps (even with a hole drilled for the overlong center post) and a matching tach. Someone took all the tasty goodies and threw it together for a quick sale.

 

PS the 2 caliper lines are touching😬
