    BMW Performance Carbon Fiber Strut Brace/Bar DIY doityourself

    Ordered my strut brace today and was getting the DIY research out of the way.

    Found this installation .pdf and figured I'd post it up.

    Pics will be added after the install.

    Where did you buy the strut brace from and how much did you pay for it?
