I didn't mean to scare you and wasn't clear. It may stress some of the chassis, namely some part of the subframe but certainly the sway bar mounting points. The Hotchkis reinforces these.

If anything it would put less stress on the shock towers and the like, as the sway does more work.

A 20mm rear convertible/iX bar is a very solid upgrade- and it won't harm your car at all.

25mm Z4 M Sport front, 20mm Convertible rear is an excellent combination.

I used to have Hotchkis but prefer my new setup. It is possible to have too much sway bar.
