    Genuine BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Strut Tower Brace Part Number: 51 71 0 429 378 Fits All E46, OEM BMW. The strut bar is in an extremely good condition only has wear and tear on the mounting surfaces. It has as one blemish on the top of the bar which I’m sure could be buffed out otherwise...

Hoping this post will be helpful to some of the 4cyl peeps. i've had super rough vibrations when stopped in gear, both D and R, and it gets worse with the AC on. When i give it some gas and move off, its...

    I know e46 are prone to rear chassis (or subframe kinda forgot) cracking and bolt holes. My car is at 70k it’s a 325i and I’m debating getting strut bars to help rigidity or reinforce the chassis, even if my car isn’t the M3 or 330. You think struts both rear and front will help reduce risk or...

    Hey, I have an AC Schnitzer strut bar in my M3. I want to get adjustable coil over suspension, and some options Like SGT coils have an adjustment knob that's sticking up at the top of the strut. So my questions is, would there be enough space to get the strut bar back on with one of those...

I currently have a BMW Performance CF strut bar sitting around and I was thinking about installing that, however I want to keep the same performance as the M3 strut tower brace. Is the CF BMW performance strut but...

    I installed my new ECSTuning carbon fiber strut brace and I am very pleased with the quality, fit, and finish. As you can see, I chose to re-use the existing OE hardware just for looks although I am confident in the ECSTuning supplied hardware would work just as well with their nylon lock nuts...

    Does anyone on E46Fanatics make rear strut braces/ strut bars? [email protected] used to make them but he doesn't seem to be around anymore. I have a wagon and need some mounting plates so I can make a removable bar. Thanks, John

    Hi, I am looking at upgrading my suspension and was debating on whether or not to get a front H&R sway bar, or to get a strut bar such as a dinan one. Which one will yield better performance gains? Also if I decided to go with the sway bar I would I need to get the front and rear, or just the...

    Hello. I am looking to buy a strut bar, and have found this one on Ebay. Now I know most people on this forum are against using Ebay, but this looks O.K. It is an AC Rep Strut Bar. Will this strut bar be as good of quality, as most others? Here is the link to the bar...

    Hello I am about to purchase a Dinan Strut Bar from a seller in Canada. I trust him, as he said that the bar would fit my car, as there are no differences between the fitment on a Canadian car and an American car. Will I need to do anything special if I purchase this strut bar even though it's...

    Have a 2001 BMW 330Ci. Looking at a used Dinan Strut bar off of a 2001 BMW 330i sedan. Will this fit my car, or will I have to make modifications?

    Should I get the carbon fiber strut bar from Rogue engineering, or should I get Dinan stage II software? Will I actually feel a difference from the software or strut bar?? Thanks

    I have a question on the varying prices of strut bars. I have seen some for less than two hundred dollars, and others for more than one thousand dollars! I am looking at the CFWerks Carbon Fiber strut bar for my 330 ci, and it is 200. I am wondering if this will perform as well as other higher...
