    Yeah it is too much money. I think 1150USD is too much. If this was marketed around 700-800 at MOST I think that would be reasonable. But again, because of the BMWP strut bar value/market I’m sure these guys feel like their product can bring that too (why wouldn’t they, it’s an exact copy). I’d buy one just so I could hang up my current BMWP one in storage but again, I think the price is too high.

    If anyone is getting rid of their old setup for this new fancy one, let me know so I can help you put some money towards the new one

    This is the only reason why I want to get the Karbonius strut bar to replace the BMW Performance carbon fiber strut bar I currently have installed in my M3. I can then hang my two BMW Performance carbon fiber strut bars someplace in my home for the time being until the time comes that I can swap one of them into my ZHP...

    BMW Bar vs Karbonius Bar.

    Owner states the Karbonius Bar is slightly heavier. Trying to get the actual weight of the two.
