e46 M3 brace from South Motors BMW - (305) 256 2269

Ask for Paul. Good prices and good service.

Very understated bar - all black. Looks more go than show. YMMV.

Anybody know the price of the OEM e46 M3 strut bar with all the necessary parts? I know it's been discussed before, but all I can find in a search is all the part #s.

Everyone here knows what all the strut bars are no need to show each one and basically they are all EYE CANDY. So the decision is up to you in the looks and price department.

I've just ordered E46 M3 strut bar, from South BMW.

From prev. posts, this looks like the best buy for $280.

vids_blk323Ci,

yes, I've checked all over US dealers, the best price we can get is what you have posted "retail"-25% off, that comes out to $271.

Or at least that is the best they are welling to sell it to us for.

that is from South BMW, ask for Paul M.
