Have used them on another (non-BMW) car. Inexpensive and fit well, but tend to corrode in markets where salt is used in the winter (they're made in Malaysia).

I've had a set on order for my E92 for over eight months, but my UK supplier finds the Malaysian factory difficult to do business with. As I have an MSport which is fitted with quite good OEM bracing, I won't be that bothered if they never materialise...

It's now nearly a year since I ordered mine. Virtually given up on them ever appearing...

Finally...pics

here it is, sorry it took this long. the Ultra Racing Chassis Brace. I like the lower profile for the exhaust and 6 points of contact.
