325/330 strut bar=335?

NO
Ok ive put the strut bar on my car for a couple day know and all the sudden i had a rattle in my dash..Couldnt figure it out for the life of me what it was!
The strut bar fits over the intake box no problem it bolts down and all with a bit of clearance it doesnt put any pressure on the intake box..BUT as soon as u start the car it starts to make contact cuase the engine moves!!
I started my car this morning and it was rattling reallly bad so i popped the hood and put my hand on the strut bar it made this wierd rattle noise so Immediatly i shut off the car took off the strut bar and BAM NO RATTLE!
so anyone thinking of trying to install the strut bar on the 335 it will NOT WORK. unless u can live with some god awful rattle that sounds like a bird crawling around in your dash!!

so you have the rattle with the oem strut bar in you 330? Have you tried tightening it down, etc? Anybody else with this rattle?
I wish Dinan's bar wasn't so prohibitively expensive.

The point is that this OEM strut bar that fits our E90 325i/330i does not fit the E90 335i.

OEM strut brace installed on my 330i is ellipsoid in cross section, leading me to wonder whether there may be less clearance between the hood and engine cover for 335i cars.
