Vorshlag camber plates not so much.

Great review.

I got M3 bits front and back. I am going after the best steering feel/response.
I still feel the center feel could improve a lot and overall more feel could be used. Would this strut brace take me in the right direction?

Not sure if this was the issue, but we've seen a number of people use the M3 brace on a non-M3. Apparently it barely fits with the non-M3 strut top nuts, but will not fit when using the non-M3 nuts and our camber plates.

The M3 brace has special strut top nuts that HP enclose in their kit. The brace works better with those OEM M3 nuts. And, the brace WILL work with the Vorshlag camber plates as long as you have those nuts.

You have to wonder why BMW did not make the M3 brace standard on the 335, at least with ZSP or si.
