BMW E88 Strut Braces & Stress Bars

BMW E88 Strut Braces & Stress Bars BMWs need some added chassis strengthening in the front. You may notice some "chassis flex" when cornering or driving over a bumpy road. The reason for this is the incredible amount of force being applied to front strut towers. They have a tendency to flex when force is applied to them. Tying the strut towers together with a brace reduces the amount of flex and soldifies your car's chassis. Easy installation.

E82 135, E9X 335 Dinan Carbon Fiber Strut Tower Brace

A strut tower brace adds additional reinforcement to the front strut towers, tying them together for extra rigidity. This makes the whole structure stronger with less chassis flex. Handling and steering feel are improved with better turn-in and input with no downsides. The Dinan strut tower brace is a very high quality carbon fiber and aluminum brace with precision machined ends that match the contours of the strut tower. This is one of the few strut braces on the market that work with the stock E9X strut brace (arms to the firewall). Other braces require you to delete the stock strut brace. This is also a hinge-less design - all of the attachment points are fixed - which is stronger than a strut brace that can pivot. This is definitely one of the stronger strut brace designs on the market. The center bar is flat-oval carbon fiber and very light weight but strong.

The brace fits with the factory reinforcement arms to the firewall. A new positive battery terminal is included that is engineered to work with the Dinan strut brace. Installation instructions are included but professional installation is recommended.

For over 35 years, Dinan has been America's premier tuning company, pioneering advancements in BMW modification while retaining a focus on balanced performance that preserves the original character and driving feel that a BMW offers. When you install a Dinan part on your car, know that it's not only carefully developed and tested, but that Dinan stands behind it with a four year, 50,000-mile warranty. Dinan believes so fully in their “total package” approach that once your car has been fitted with enough of their parts, they celebrate your conversion from stock to Dinan with an exclusive trunk badge, displayed proudly by BMW enthusiasts everywhere. This part is worth 2 points towards your Dinan badge.
