I'm talking to Franklin (UDM Motorsport) about the bars. He said he can do 113US Shipped to canada We jst need @ least 5 people to get it at that price maybe we can ship it all at once so we save @ shippin to.
Check out Franklin's Website for other products, he's a good guy and very easy to contact: http://www.udm-motorsport.com

If they made them they are probably discontinued. Your best off finding a rollcage shop and approach them with a group buy and then get them powder coated.

Many years now, listed under E30 M3 fitment. I've had mine on for quite a while now.

Edit: You can even see it in my sig.

Listed on Sparco's site? Where?

Mystikal

Oh sorry, probably shouldn't have used the term "listed". Just mean perhaps it's under an M3 section that by chance you didn't look at. But the part itself has been around for many years, EvoSport has been the main seller.

M3 section? There is no "listing" or "section" for strut bars on Sparco's site. If there is can you supply a link.

I just find it odd that there is no info on these things. It will probably be cheaper to have them custom made at a local shop.

Mystikal

You still didn't understand what I meant. Just said that perhaps it's seperated on Sparco's site, I've never been to the page.

Thats a great deal guys.
I think Jay ended up paying close to $200 cus US $ was high back then.
I got mine off m50_e30_m20(I think thats his name) for cheap :D

Axxe
03-01-2005, 10:00 AM
With the sparco bar I can finally come out to a meet without a bone stock car :D. Last time I dropped by to pick up the caps from Jay so I could put the weaves on, never did put them on since I did 5-spd swap instead. Ha!

What shipping company? Hopefully, not UPS. Any ideas on how much customs/brokerage is?

If altogether it comes to $150 or less and it will fit an E30 Cabrio (1992) then I'm in.

*smoke* AM IN FOR SOME RONALS

Mike already knows this, but the best I could find in about an hour was $209 each (no tax). Minimum 8 total, so two sets. I'll try to get a better deal, I need to call around a bit more. I offered $175, but he said they would be losing money for that price, so I'll have to call a few other places to. If anyone finds anything let me know.
