I believe they are M8 bolts. You'll need 4 of them, maybe 8 at the most. Depends if you have to drop just the rear cross brace or both of them. Just take one out, drive to the hardware store, and buy 8 more with the same thread only about 1/2" longer.

Place the spacers between the underbody of the car and the brace(s), effectively lowering the brace itself. You'll understand when you're under there and looking at it.

EDIT: Here you go, except I believe they are M8 not M6

my magna flow is off and is soon going to be sent into them to be looked at under warranty and hopefully replaced with a non defective 1..

zach330ci where the mid connects to the front the pipes are a real pain in the ass to get in and out good luck with that. idk why the hardware is so out of whack coming from a reputable company like magna flow for a european bmw

I had a muffler shop put it on, there is a rattle or vibration when I get out of first gear. They said they could try flattening the pipes in some areas to prevent it since they welded it on. *hoping for the best*
