    Thanks for that info. That's not bad at all. I suspected this guy was trying to put one over on me. Gonna try to get a few more estimates.

    Any update KCFAN58? I've heard the Subframe Connectors from ART take a lot of trimming to fit, so I am very curious to hear how your project is coming. I don't have any rust, but would like to do the connectors on my M body.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, same curiosity here. If they fit the floorpan well I have a couple t-bar cars could use added stability.

    Sorry about that guys! The first guy ended up not being comfortable with doing the install. However my body guy did the install, they did take some trimming for the install but were not too bad. He did charge me more, it was $300 to trim them and weld them up. I will get some pictures soon.

    Digging up an old thread....curious, at what point (HP/TQ) is it advised to add sub frame connectors?

    I can't speak for what HP/TQ they're advised (or mandatory)but, subframe connectors make a noticeable difference even on a stock S6 car. With them, the car feels more solid and the handling is improved a bit, along with fewer squeaks and rattles. JMO, they should have had full length subframe rails right from the start.
