My Wiechers strut bar won't block the engine oil cap.

Not having an E92, it's possible my E90 comment won't be worth much. But when I was planning to have the major suspension surgery on my 335d done, I was sure I wanted the OEM M3 Strut Tower Brace. But the speed shop who is doing the work basically talked me out of it. He said the E90 is already rigid enough and there wouldn't be any significant return on my investment in the brace. When I said I also thought it would make it easier to make adjustments on the front struts, he said, well, we can look at that aspect when you come in. The work is to be done during 13-15 March, so that discussion will happen in about a week.

Yea the strut brace shouldn't make too much of a difference on the E92 and E90 platform. The E93 Chassis is horrible.

No need to, I use to source automotive parts and accessories for American tuning companies. That strut bar I've seen many times, in many factories. Even the one with the AA logo on it .
