Refering to the Meyle's control arm at bavauto.com Part num 31 12 1 140957M
I have the Mayle ones from Bavauto, and i like them, i do feel a much crisp road when driving.
I did not notice any difference in terms of noise after using them, but i do agree on replacing bushings as well since ure at it, whicht is what ive done...
Got a full new suspension springs, shhocks, bushings , joints and all for rear and front.
I find that the best fisrt investement for the e36 is to do a complete suspension job.
Depending on the year of fabrication or your car i would also recommend for you to check your rear subframe suspension bolts, as to make sure you dont have an issue with the ones that rip off from the car...
but overall go for it, if you are going for a full suspension work.
