I don't know if it will fit or not but I'm curious why yours are breaking. I drove the living piss out of my car and the original one still lasted 100k miles.

The shop that did it the first time installed it backwards -.- I was wondering why it wore out so fast so I decided to check it but the damage is already done.

Oh that makes sense. I would just get another stock one, it should be plenty strong (when installed the right way) lol.

I think I remember reading about how some people just buy the M3 one because it's stronger and doesn't wear out as easily. I think it's one of the few interchangeable parts between Ms and non-Ms.

LOL my guibo was far worse. I was missing one of the bolts entirely, the whole thing was only held together on three sides with the strands.

Lol yeah you're right but you can never be too sure, also no one ever followed up saying that it fit on those threads. Hopefully I won't be replacing this one anytime soon.

Hello BMW Experts,
One question that is not answered definitively, is whether the M3 Guibo will fit a 330i. The last post says Turner said no, but Alex seems to be saying yes.
