    I had the Megan Racing one and I didn't like it very much. Try Wiechers, that's a good brand and their steel strut bars and pretty cheap.

    I don't have any experience with strut bars but I'd personally go with something solid and not hinged. The garagistic bar looks pretty decent for a good price:

    Thanks for the recommendations. I do like the simple, but solid design of the Garagistic. Looks like everyone is out of stock. Couldn’t keep up with all the Black Friday orders.

    But only if you can get the special nuts with it...they're $11 a piece otherwise.

    I LIKE that Garagistic strut bar, and the price is right. I have ECS/Turner carbon-fiber on my cars, and they’re good, but the aluminum mounts have a tendency toward galvanic reaction and unsightly corrosion if exposed to the elements.

    Garagistic said they were working on a new one for e46 non Ms. I contacted them since their current bar has been out of stock for a while.
