We're still at 4 orders including me . At the rate the response level is going, I don't think we will make the minimum production run.

Just a bump for this thread. I will close this thread in 1.5 weeks from now if there's no one else that's interested. The vendor has advised that to get the pricepoint of $365, we would need 25 orders.

what modification are you talking about? its just moving the resevoir out of the way then putting it back...

ALL work on the left front strut requires this... including the installation of the dinan bar, free camber adjustments, camber plate installs, and service to the front struts should it ever need to be replaced...

this is a design flaw of bmw... they put it in an area that doesn't make sense...

if you have the camber plates installed, then that means you have no alignment pin to maintain the location of the front struts once the top nuts are loosened or removed. chances are you will not need an alignment but the camber plate could move more in once those nuts are loosened. however, if you have yours set at max negative camber, then there is no place for the camber plate to slide anymore since you are at the extreme inside... just remove the nuts and add the bar if thats the case...

if your camber is not at max negative, i would recommend having an alignment check once you do it... you may not need to have anything adjusted, but just in case since there is a possibility that it moved...

According to Dinan's instructions, it states that some shaving to the plastic trims around the washer fluid resevoir is required to clear the brace.

you gotta remember that dinan also cut the frame out of a z8 to make the m5 headers fit.... and thereby destroying the car.. gotta love them dinan engineers...

all kidding aside, this is a good question.. gotta get chefwong to ask strong strut how they handle the windshield fluid resevoir in the way...

I haven't really pressed Strong Stuts on design as the interest in the stut bars has been very low. A whopping 4 interested parties ! Suffice to say, this group buy is cancelled.

So far I'm 0-2 . Rac wheels and the strut bars.

Alan it was a good try on your part. Too bad I already have both of them otherwise I'm in. What's going on with your HREs?

The wheels are back at HRE for some R&R. After 2 years....I sent them back to get them back to spec !

BTW......I'm adding aftermarket tire pressure monitors on them when before I put the tars on. Don't know how bad the roads are around you way , but I've had my fair share of flats, etc. So instead of me doing the methodical onceover and checking the tire pressue about once a week......I did say methodical , I'll be adding a tire pressure monitor on them. The NICE thing is that you can set the trigger at whatever pressue you live, and I'm going to have it trigger if it hits 30lbs or below.

Excellent idea on the tire pressure monitors, Alan. Let us know how they're working out.
