Nice. Have you noticed any difference at all? Oh, do you have the X-Brace also? I was looking into that, wondering if it was worth it.

I can slightly feel the difference, its tighter and more responsive at speeds. I am just about to order the X-brace today, from what I hear that makes a big difference.

Hey, nice bar. I dont wanna seem rude or anything... its probly a great bar and its not that bad of a price. But if anyone is going to get one i would highly reccomend one from Ireland engineering. Dont be fooled its like in california or something over on west coast. But its not aluminum like that one, but steel so it flexes less. Its not hinged but tac welded to steel contact plates. Its an INCREDIBLY ridgid bar at an unbeatable price of $130. I dont remember if they come painted or not.

A lot of people seem to like the hinged, but i find a few disadvantages to them. While they are most likely stronger in the middle section due to larger thicker box beams they have (comparatively) weak hinges. Not that this effects performance. But the major disadvantage is that though the brace keeps an even distance between the struts, due to the hinges it lets them flex up and down individually, or left and right as a pair.

yes you could buy an M3 for that price. I would think you can find a high mileage 97-98 for that price or a mid mileage 95-96 for that price. Check autotrader, when I was looking the had some nice 97's with around 80k miles for low 18's.

Hey ski its http://www.bmw2002.com/ but i just went and looked (ive never looked in their e36 section) and they dont have one on the site for e36. However since they make everything inhouse if you contact them and ask they will most likely make one. these guys specialise in 2002 and e30 really. I guess i forgot to mention that.
