front strut brace: anyone?

Hi!
I wanted to get a front strut brace for my 30i.......
but no one seems to produce this article....
I don't know if it's a bonnet/engine clearance problem or just lazyness....

I have not checked the engine clearance, but I doubt that is the sole reason. Another possible explanation is the market support. It is hard for manufacturers to justify the cost of research and development if the customers are not there. In my opinion the E89 market has grown leaps and bounds from the models inception, but it still has a ways to go before seeing more a drastic increase in support from manufacturers.

I think it's because there aren't enough of us. The e89 section is relative quiet when compared to the e90 section. You can get sways and coilovers to improve handling of the e89.

Send a message via MSN to parnassus
I had no idea this existed. I guess the E89 mods thread needs to be updated with all these new parts
