I just got my suspension parts order that included the BMW Performance strut bar and I'm pretty sure I got the wrong part... The ends look different than the pics on their site and from the pics I've seen here; the only hardware it shipped with was 2 each nut, bolt, and cover; and it's got a much more pronounced bend that would have it covering the oil filler cap even when set back as far as possible. I sent the vendor an email and hopefully will hear back tomorrow.. Just to be sure though, is this actually the completely wrong part or am I just missing the part that bolts to the strut tower and some hardware?

doesnt even look like the e46 one just by looking at the ends. It should be circular on the ends, so it connects to the 3 bolts on the strut tower

yes, wrong part. my perf strut bar has completely different ends(where it bolts to the strut tower). oh and get ready for the positive terminal mod. I think 330_zhp is right, the one you are showing looks like the one for the e9x

I never took a really close look at one so I was hoping the ends mine has bolted into the circular part I've seen on the E46 version. I double-checked my order and I definitely ordered the E46 version so I guess we'll see how well the vendor handles this... I'm hoping they just send out the right one along with a call-tag for the one they sent by mistake.

Well this blows. I sent them (ECS Tuning) an email that I got the wrong part monday night. Their site still showed the bar as being available. Between that email that they never replied to and just now when I called, they apparently sold out and won't be getting any more.

Anybody know of a vendor besides ECS that has them for a good price? All I found so far is Tischer that still wants the crazy MSRP for it...

I found one from Patrick at BMW Parts Source. It was a bit pricier at 354+ shipping, but at least I found one. After I ordered mine on Wednesday he had one more left.

To high for me now :ben:, I have another priorities in the mean time :

- Dynavin $ 645
- Shark Injector $ 356

I do not want to go crazy buying things :excited:
