New Intake/ strut brace installed

So I have always liked the Dinan intake and finally found one (brand new) on ebay for a good price. So I removed my Ultimate Racing intake and here are the results. Decided to go ahead with the strut brace as well from Dinan, another great buy on Ebay:

I bought the strut brace from Crevier BMW off of ebay, they are a store on there. From Dinan's website they are $799.00; however, I offered Crevier $450.00 and they accepted. Most strut braces are going to be good as long as it is made from a strong material, only reason I went with Dinan is not only for the looks and/or quality but it gave me enough points to obtain a "Dinan Badge" for my 335. I would recommend Dinan or Bmw oem strut brace to keep the looks quality.
