Im looking for a front strut bar and want to know the best place to buy one. ANyone know where I can find one for a decent price, I dont feel like spending 170. I was quoted 90 but was seeing if anyone else found a better price.

I stopped buying shit on ebay when I realized anything sold on ebay is 99 cent store quality and you can get the real product using froogle.com (google's website for finding the cheapest price). Ebay really does suck and pretty much everything is a scam. Also, if you buy a cheap strut bar it can damage your strut tower mounts which is not a good thing. Think of buying high quality parts as buying a BMW vs a Honda. Hondas are cheaper but...

It's only got CF inside of it because carbon fiber itself wouldn't be strong enough to stop the flex.

So you don't want a cheap product...for a cheap price...you don't want a good product at good product prices which are NOT cheap...

I know what you're lookin for...a good BMW aftermarket product...a quality product manufactured to OEM standards made by a quality aftermarket company...at a cheap price...

good luck with that...

Buy cheap get cheap , You guys should know by now . you just can't run down to Pep Boys and buy cheap ass Nopi stuff and expect performance gains. Going fast takes $$$$$$ , if everybody could afford to prep a Bimmer we'd all be racing, and every jackbutt punk would be on the track.
