This, as the M3 bonnet is alu it is a lighter strut than the standard 3 series. Mine is becoming soft enough to just let the bonnet go from a few decimeters to close. Maybe time to change? (although its quite comfy closing it)

For 22 bucks you should consider trying these. They work just fine. They wont fly up out of control, its just stiff pushing it back down but the old oem ones were so soft the hood would slam down on my head unless propped up. Its not so much that its a problem thats really a big deal and it wont deform the hood.

I have no issues closing my hood with the 3 Series struts, then again I very rarely open my hood.

My FCP Euro order arrived and the hood strut was the correct part with 200N eject force. It is a BMW branded part made by Stabilus and is cheaper than at ECS Tuning. Photo attached.

-------------------------------------------------------------
FCP Euro seems to be the best place for the BMW part (51237900795) at $66.89. HINT; leave the parts in the basket for a few days and they may send you a 5% off code.

Are you sure that they are the exact same part? The difference in price is HUGE! Are these the exact same?

Ordered the Deflection Pulley INA-5320605100 the other day for my 2011 E90, but the original bolt doesn't fit in the pulley, nor does the suggested bolt (07119906591).

Did anyone else try to replace their original deflection pulley with this suggested one and it worked?

There's two variants, one has a off-centered hole and the other is in the center - compare both

Yep, I did. The one I took out of my engine was the center one, as was the part I ordered, INA-5320605100. The bolt just could not fit through. Seems like the inner diameter was just a bit smaller than the original.

I uploaded a comparison here:

The left pulley being the original, along with the bolt suggested (07119906591). The one on the right is INA-5320605100, which I could not thread the bolt through.

I ended up getting a Duralast idler pulley (part 231161) that was suggested in another thread, and the bolt threaded through fine. Been driving it for a week now with no problems so far.

Is there an OEM alternative for the front strut guides/top hats? The BMW ones seem classically overpriced for what they are at ~$240/pair.

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...h/31302283650/

Also, any idea how robust these are? Mine don't given any obvious indication of wear, but I am about to install Dinan camber plates so wondering if it's worth replacing these "while I'm in there." 2011, 50K miles, ZCP ...

Unfortunately that part is only available from BMW. You can carefully pry it open and there is a replaceable bearing inside, but I've never been able to locate the internal bearing for sale (post it if you can find it). I found my internal bearing to be in good condition at 50k miles before switching to GC street camber plates which have a similar, but smaller bearing. Some on here have suggested to open the bearing, clean it out and re-grease the ball bearings. Here is what it looks like inside:
