OEM Sway Bar options?

I'm dumb.

The E60 and E63 (without competition package) share the same rear sways. Makes my stack of 18mm rears almost worthless, but explains why I have so many.

SWAY BAR Option

I am certainly not an engineer, but I wonder why BMW Motorsport never optioned an upgraded front and rear sway setup for the M5? Not that the beast does not handle poorly, but it could have been slightly better. For me I don't need a hardcore track setup! I guess I could ask "why" forever. Glad to know there is a bit of a remedy or option with some OEM stuff! Thanks guys for doing some research on this matter!

SWAY BAR Option

Does anyone know the percentage increase that the Dinan FRC adds to the stock front sway bar?

I just installed the Dinan rear sway bar and will bought an M6 front sway. I couldn't find poly bushings so I just ordered new OEM rubber ones. The rear Dinan on the center hole with the stock rear bar feels pretty good driving around town already.

Are you guys still happy running the M6 28mm bar up front?

I put in a 28mm front sway from an M6. It feels good with my Dinan rear in the center setting. I tested it on my local canyon road and was very pleased with the new sways. Thanks for the info.
