Arrow Mounting Remote Damper Cannisters?

Just wondering if anyone knows how one can mount remote cannisters in the front... E46 had room on the strut tower brace... but obviously the E92 doesn't...

Anyone know how Turner, Fall-Line, or Rum Bum racing mount theirs?

I dont think they can modify the suspension in Grand Am for coilovers. I think you posted a pic of an engine bay of a GT4 (maybe in the steering fluid thread) that showed some cutouts at the top of the engine bay (ie were the cabin air filters are) since they dont run cabin air filters - must be enough room on the other side. This is where they are mounted on that car.

This doesnt help you obviously. Let us know what you find out or come up with.

EDIT: Here is the pic:

I think I might have seen pics of a E9X M3 in Germany with remote canisters on this forum, but can't recall what thread exactly...

Haha most likely the CS. Now it's basically MS 2-way since its been upgraded to 15 clicks each for compression and rebound.

You can make a mock-up with an empty paper towel roll if you know the canister dimensions. The passenger side has plenty of room but the drivers side is a bit tight.

Depending on how long it is, you can even have it mounted on the front of the car.

I was thinking maybe just put them in the front-seat cup holders...
