After some research into the strut bars, we have decided to do the following:

- The oem M3 strut bar is a 5pc design (Centre Mount, 2 x Strut bars, 2 x Mounting Rings)
- Our strut bar will follow the same M3 design, but will be a 3pc design (OEM Centre Mount, 2 x Dry Carbon Strut bars with integrated mounting ring)

Although this will be lighter, weight savings are marginal due to the relatively low amount of raw material used in the first place. Being 100% Dry Carbon (aside from the Centre Mount, which will still be OEM), it will be several times stronger than the OEM steel strut bars/mounting rings.

And for those wondering about pricing, it will be less than the price of the OEM part (which, at $500, is quite expensive to start with).

So, not only will you be getting a design based on the OEM M3 Strut Bar, it will also be lighter, stronger and lower cost.

Before we proceed with the initial design of this though, I just want to make sure that you guys will actually be interested in this once it's ready?

Thanks!
You guys can count me in!
