I know of people that have bought them for the e34, only to have the bushings go bad a year later. They are cheeply made, and are the fraction of the OE quality. Besides, it's not even stated who makes them ... they are that generic...

I wouldn't buy them, unless you really feel like swapping bushings/arms every year.

I buy alot of parts from jaggraveyardcom and foreigncarpartsonline (ebay seller id) and have never had any problem with the bmw parts either sells.

foreigncarpartsonline usually has great deals on bmw suspension parts, i highly recommend the product they sell. i just replaced my control arms and bushings on my z3 with product of theirs, and my 325i before that. my 325 has about 17k miles and a year and a half of wear on them and they are still fine.
