    I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new sn95 k member that BMR is developing. It is officially for sale now and thought I would give the Terminator guys a heads up. They have a few different versions available for these cars. Specifically a tubular version and a fully boxed premium version. I have just placed an order for the premium version that allows use of the stock lower control arms with a spring perch. Much like the old steeda piece but the price is much easier on the wallet. The cost is very reasonable @ $499. The tubular version is currently priced @ $199 for a limited time. I spoke to BMR and they said the cost of the tubular K will be going up soon so grab them while they are cheap! They also said they are devoloping a lot of suspension parts for the sn95. They are also developing some things specifically for the irs in the Cobra's. I have heard great things about their stuff and am excited to install this piece. I will post back when it arrives!

    Let us know how it goes. I'm still willing to ditch the MM k member so I can get rid of the oil filter relocation and pull the tires back in. But after all this time I don't want to be a guinea pig. Already doing that for another new mod.

    Looks like the premium version might still require oil filter relocation

    I read the installation instructions and it didn’t mention anything about relocating the oil filter

    One of the things BMR kept pushing was that no oil filter relocation was needed. I'd be kind of bummed if that changed.

    When I spoke to them I forgot to ask that. I will give them a call on Monday to find out and report back. I did mention it was going on a cobra and he didn't say anything about relocating the oil filter.

    I’ve seen the premium k-member on their test car when I was at BMR and it had the stock oil filter on it. No relocation needed.

    For $199 I'm grabbing one. That's a steal...

    Hard to beat that price. I think I'd want the premium as my car is a street car.

    I spoke to BMR and was told that none of the new sn95 k members require you to move the oil filter.

    Awesome thank you. This looks like it's going to cut about 25 pounds over the stock one. Stock is 53 and this is about 27. I need to get my vert weighed. After I throw this on I'll be at about 3,325 pounds.

    Wow that premium 743 looks really sweet. I'd go that route for sure if i ever need a K

    In for your thoughts about the premium version. Right now I have MM everything up front but this piece looks very nice. I emailed bmr asking about the advantages this k-member offers. If I went with the bmr I'd have to get their control arms too, I hate mixing brands
    These look very promising at a reasonable price. Plus you can call me what you will but I'm loving the red powdercoat!

    My son ordered the non premium version last night. I'm interested to look it over. Oh, and he ordered the red to go with his yellow car.

    Dumb question, does this unit use the stock style rack bushings?
