Carbon Fibre Strut Brace

Do you guys know if the carbon Fibre strut brace from the bmw performance magazine will fit on our E92 M3? A sales person from my dealer said it will, but what do they know. Any help would be appreciated.

The M3 already has braces triangulated to the firewall--best setup by far. But, no, it will not fit--no room between the hood & airbox.

Seriously, people keep asking about it, front strut's come stock, don't need to do anything, all you need to do is get the ACS rear strut brace and your good to go

I think one of the tuning companies will come out with a strut bar for the M3 soon, I was told by RDsport that they are working on a set as are many other companies.

the 325,328,330 and 335 have them too and they offer the strut bar for them. the answer is no, it would not fit the m3.
