I remembered that I have read a review online said original M3 strut bar is the best. He tried 3 options but then he had a N54 so there wasn't too many options.

hows the cusco bar look? i don't really think it makes much of a difference for E90's and E92's, the chassis feels pretty stiff already. The e93 on the other hand feels like a wooden boat with wheels.

I would stay with the original BMW Performance strut bar, the aluminum one is the best IMO.

Help me decide please

A slow driver like myself, is there a point to this strut bar?

Looking at ecs website
It cost under 400USD with postage, something I can afford.
Just not sure if I would make a difference to me.

If you're a slow driver, the strut bar would be purely cosmetic. Eye Candy. If it's not about performance and yo have some spare coin to spend, I would go with the BMW Perf CF Bar... one of the sweeeetest looking ones out there IMO.v A good buddy of mine (you know who you are) has one and I will jack it from him one of these days...

Thanks! I'm suprised how well made the bar is, for 350 USD its a bargain. Only gripe is that it blocks my window washing fluid resoirvoir, so i have to keep a giant alan wrench in my car at all times haha.

I bought it from Andrew@ AA. Super quick responses and was packaged as if it was fine china. =)
