Has anyone tried the urethane trust arms bushings from Bavarian Autosport? If so what is the life expectancy? And are they worth it?

I have never tried but what i have read is that urathane bushings will cause the car to ride a little stiffer

I've tried the urethane bushings on another car (none BMW) and the ride was a little stiffer but not jarring. I also noticed some squeeks too but the handling was much MUCH improved. More precise.
