i would double check your work to make sure, mine was installed with no problems. Even the m3 oem has a slight issue with the brace bolts and the cowl.

I did double check my work. Called ECS and they explained that this is a problem they have been having with this product (which makes me wonder why the hell they are selling it!!!)

They product is still for sale however is discontinued due to fitment issues.
