Hi All, new to this site....I live in New Zealand _where there is very little after market performace equipment, so while in Austrlia i purchased fron slotted cross drilled front rotors and a front strut brace..however prior to fitting there are a number of issues i will ahve to conquer i.e Fitting will require removing/moving - earth wire on the ABD top sturt tower & Bolt threads for the Air Filter Pods, does anyone know/has previously fitted one of these to their e39??? Any help would be great..thanks Mikey

Hi Mikey, Welcome. The strut bar is a no brainer, just undo the nuts on the towers, fit the bar and replace the nuts to include your ground wire. Thats it your done!

I would also check the torque settings for the bolts and use a torque wrench to torque them down after the install. I've stripped a bolt on my really old Maxima when I was installing the strut brace on it.... many, many years ago.
