Strut Brace Question

Hi guys,
I installed the BMS Dual Cone Intake on my 335i sedan. I'm interested in adding a strut brace to my car, but I'm concerned about it trying to take up the same real estate as the rear cone. Do you gents have any recommendations?
Thanks,
Brad

JLC cross brace is a nice brace and I think it would clear the DCI filters

I've tried googling JLC, but can't find a link. Can you give me a website?
Thanks,
Brad

Got it. JIC Cross. Looks like that might work.
Thanks!

just be aware that the JIC may cause an issue if you decide to put coilovers in that have an adjuster at the top by blocking it. Also, the stock braces will definitely rub on Konis. the M3 brace is perfect for this but may take up too much real estate you need.

It looks like that may work out nicely. BTW, I love the look of your chrome engine cover. Looks awesome.

Thanks for the advice. But I won't be going with coilovers or "race" shocks on my car, so I'm not really worried about that. I also have an old Porsche 944 that I'm in the process of converting to a track car. I'm going to keep the 335 as a daily driver. I just thought the strut brace might be a cool addition.
Thanks,
Brad
