Engine support bar - recommendations

When I was working on my engine mounts I realized that my harbor freight engine support bar won't fit in the X5, it fit on my e46. Do you have recommendations on engine support bar that will fit the X5 and wallet? Links online appreciated. I will need this to replace my oil pan gasket in the future.

I just used the harbor freight bar. I used the chain to connect it to the hock and used a small extension to lock te chain links. You could also try putting the bar on the strut towers to see if you can use the hook as you would on the e46

thanks, I'll try the fitment on the strut towers. I think Harbor Freight has a model before that's longer and what they have now is shorter (maybe cost-savings on the weight/material)
