Strut Brace

Post by Simon Site Manager »

So, I paid off my PCP in July (£13.2k) and have so far fitted an MP LSD, MP Back box, and a MP underbody brace. Is there any gain in the MP Strut Brace? I would like to know the members thoughts? With the eception of the LSD, (thanks Marc Williams) that these have been bolted on by me. Still trying to find someone more local to do the LCA's and TS's....with a Hunter!

Given the relatively modest cost and ease of fitting and BMW fit them as OEM to M models, there must be some benefit. I have done before and after tests in previous cars, a few years back. The best way I could describe the improvement is a sensation that the steering column is more thoroughly attached to the vehicle, giving a slightly more 'connected' feel to the steering.
