My Ride: makes my pants tight
I'll sell the BMW Performance strut bar off my car to anyone still looking. It is in great shape (obvious marks around bolt holes where it was installed). DIBS CALLED FOR NOW PM me, I can send pictures when I get back home this weekend. Also, it will come with a heck of a lot better packaging (read; it won't come damaged due to just being thrown in a box) than any of the sponsors cared to package these things in.

I ordered them on February 17th. Parts shipped on the 22nd, arrived to disappoint me on the 28th, and between that day when I emailed them and today when I called they sold out.

Dam I'm so impatient. My bar and intake has shipped today. Who the hell knows how long it's going to take to get up here though?

Can't wait.

Yeah, the accident was last April. Replaced with a sedan, couldn't find a suitable touring at the time. Pretty much a twin of the touring, same colour etc.

Sucks because now a friend of mine is selling his techno violet touring for next to nothing.

Mine came with both. Should be a cheap buy if you need to pick them up at the local dealer though.

Same thing happened here. My first order came with one bar scratched and the other having some kind of metal brace attached - plainly used. Second time around one was ok with all the bolts and caps in a bag, but the other didn't have a bag and was missing one of the bolts. Sort of cautious about ordering the intake now.

At least "scratch and dent" sale is honest, whereas "clearance" usually should mean new.

if they were going to send me a used one with no bolts or caps they should have atleast dropped the price on it...no honesty in a sale is always a deterent for me...... to ECS Tuning

will it install with the bolts that are already on my car?..
