Both the E36 and E46 strut towers use very thin steel and can crack when driven under specific conditions (lowered cars, potholes, etc.). A sport suspension (shorter, stiffer springs) or coilovers will transfer road hazards energy directly to the strut tower deforming and causing costly damage.
These reinforcement plates are a direct bolt in for the following vehicles:
- All E36 Models - 1992-1999 318i, 323i, 325i, 328i, M3, Z3 - sedan, coupe, convertible, wagon, hatchback
- All E46 Models - 1999-2006 323i, 323ci, 328i, 328ci, 325i, 325ci, 325xi, 330i, 330ci, 330xi - sedan, coupe, convertible, wagon
- All E46 M3 - Coupe, Convertible (These fit fine with aftermarket camber plates. If being used with factory M3 strut mounts, minor trimming is required)
