So that we don't have 20 threads with reviews and pictures we should all throw them in this thread, really now that I think about it, the reviews are going to be mostly for us to talk about , since it's not like 6 months from now someone is going to use them to make a decision on a purchase since they'll be gone but it'll still be nice to see what we all of think about 'em.

Your not using the hood button. But i have a vert but no alarm. My question is do i need the button? I ask because with the vert you can't do drop the top when certain things are open trunk, top storage box. I'm sure the hood is one of those things so I'm thinking i will heed to reinstall the hood sensor. Any vert owners feel free to chime in.

Look at the diagrams. You need to just flip the boxes. Not too big a deal. If you have no real use for the alarm box, then you could tape the button down so it always indicates a "closed" position.

I guess I might as well do the necessary procedures so that I can just put it on when it arrives! Here's the procedure again in case any of you missed it (STRUT BAR):

Are there instructions on how to install the BMW performance intake or is this about as simple as changing a tire?

I know you posted it again but thanks for sharing. I'm printing it off now. Tomorrow at lunch I'll modify the battery terminal bracket so when I get the bar, I can just put it on.

    I believe Alex has the CF strut brace already installed. He was being sarcastic as the instructions have been posted numerous times already.
