I haven’t noticed any affects with the Strut brace.

The 435 front brakes are plug and play except for I had to drill one new hole in the 435 dust shield. This hole was for one of the bolts that holds the shield to the knuckle.

Thanks! have a set of used 335 front breaks sitting in my garage waiting to be installed, they are pnp, but the 435 breaks you have look so much better.

Any coding involved after installing the 435 front brakes?

If you are only swapping the front then you shouldn’t need any coding

Very nice! You might take the cake for my favorite NA e9x I've seen. So clean and well modded.

Great work on this build, Big. <3
Find a $200 take off Diff on eBay (328i XDrive Auto 3.91 or 328i Auto 3.73) and have it shipped directly to M Factory and they will rebuild it and install the LSD for around $1500.
They quoted me 2200 :/
who did you speak with?

Really nice build. Hard to find on 328i's. If you ever want to ditch that fake wood trim I have a couple different sets of trim laying around.

Do you have the power steering hooked up with the m3 steering rack?

Do you think the cost is worth it?

The power steering is hooked up of course but I don’t have the servotronic (electrical connector) hooked up. It’s fine without it.

As far as cost goes, I grabbed a rack on eBay for $300 from a wrecked (rear ended) M3. Totally worth it! Watch eBay would be my recommendation.

There’s a thread on the swap you have to trim a bit of black plastic to get the rack input shaft into the non m3 steering joint. Not a big deal.
