Please forgive the ignorance of the non-mechanically inclined, what is the purpose and advantage of this?

Do we really need one? Since the stock ones are really functioning already.

It looks a bit out of place? The brush aluminum does not go well with the black engine compartment.

I don't think it makes much mechanical improvement from our factory strut bars, unless someone compares the two side by side.

If it's ACS it'll be 11ty billion dollars anyway. For that amount of metal, from ACS, I'm guessing $1100-1200 at least.

A 320d or maybe a 318d, not sure if the 318d has that coloured BMW logo on the plastic cover, though.

True, but I am talking about 2 bolts on each side of the bar.

Look at the factory BMW strut tower braces, they hold the bar to the strut tower interface plates via two bolts- otherwise latteral loads running along the horizontal axis of the car, front to back, allows the towers to wiggle... if that made any sense.
