My dad has mentioned to me that he would like the front end a bit stiffer on his 325it. I was wondering if the E46 ///M3 factor front strut brace fit on the 325 and if any difference was noticable. I know with my e30, the strut brace was very noticeable even with it being lowered. Anyone know how much?

The E46 M3 one will fit. Turner has it for $325.

E46 tuning is expensive, simply because the market will take it. Sad, all it is is a bar with welded ends that bolt to the towers. Cost to make has to be less than $50, especially in the volumes they sell.

Trust me I know. I work in the car industry, the mark up on parts is insane.
I have seen a couple of good ones on ebay in the $150.00Us range......
