Just installed the strut bar for my 335i E90

Got from Ebay:http://www.ebay.com/itm/380675406256...84.m1439.l2649
installed last night in less than1 hour, looks great and fits perfectly. Drove 30 miles this morning, didn't feel too much of change but do feel the tightness when passing the bumper (especially when two front wheels are on the bumper at the different time.

It blocks the oil cap, windshield water cap and also the air box cover though, but the brace can be removed very easily by un-screw the 2 hex screws.

not bad for $100 even for cosmatic.

most sellers say this doesnt work for 335 only 328.
i always assumed with a DCI there is no problem, interesting to see it working with the airbox

also should note it looks like it blocks the cowl from being able to come off since its pretty tight on the oil line brackets behind it

About 1/8 " to the airbox very close but not attach.
