Topic title should say "335d"

You UK/Euro guys usually lead the way for us North Americans when it comes to diesels and mods. Are any of you guys running this?:

Just trying to confirm that it's possible on our Ds as some say yes and others say no.

Thanks.

It should work on any E9x. I don't see why it wouldn't work on the 335d as well.

It looks like the factory M3 strut brace?

I fitted that whole assembly on my 2009 335i, and as said, it should fit any E9x. It's a solid bolted, light alloy, Tri-point brace, very rigid and makes you realise that the standard 'push in' one is completely useless.

It works well, steering feels more direct at speed and it also stopped dash creaks over speed bumps etc so it obviously stiffens up the car.


Bought the bits from a BMW dealers rather than a tuning shop, it was quite reasonable. See here http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...61&hg=51&fg=75

So I put on the M3 Strut brace kit last week. Have a couple of pictures:

Unfortunately the adjustable Vorshlag camber plates was another story altogether:
