For the extra $330, what does this brace really offer in excess of the factory E92 brace besides exhaust clearance? This brace operates mostly in tension, right?

Can you post some pics of the increased clearance?

It's much more rigid than the oem brace.

Depends on the exhaust system you have, you will get an additonal 3/8" to 1/2" more clearance.
