I ordered my Hotchkis brace from Harold and finally got around to installing it today. It might take about 30 minutes tops to remove the OE brace and install the Hotchkis brace on an E92. Two bolts at the rear (18mm socket) and eight bolts (6mm HEX) up front need to be removed/reinstalled, all very accessible with Rhino ramps in back.

Comparing the OE piece to the Hotchkis part, you know there will be an improvement. The car feels more solid and planted in corners with less flex, a worthwhile mod I think. Also, if you have a custom exhaust there is a good bit more clearance.
