Thanks.

Google:

"cusco rear strut brace e92 m3"


And the first link to pop up has a US Vendor. I'd post the exact link, but it's blocked.

And Vividracing has it too.

I've seen the Cusco's bar but it states e92 and liked them on my Subaru, great stuff. Does it fit my E90m? Is the magic question...anyone? Thx.

There was a thread here some time ago, the rear brace was branded as the biggest waste of bling $ ever for the E9xM3. It was actually a very comical thread ... hunting for it.

Found it:

Yeah that thread is interesting...

I'm after one for more of a harness bar and if it stiffens the frame then it's a bonus. I don't want to use a true harness bar because I need to use my back seat.

I wouldn't even think of using a strut bar for a harness bar. Just get a harness bar and only put it in for track events.

I'm not using it for track events, just auto-x events. I have a track car with a full cage in it so my M won't see the track.
