Strut Bars

I'm having a hard time finding some good quality strut bars for my E36 M3. Its a 97 so it has ASC (traction control) so I'm not sure what bars will be compatible. Does anyone know where I can get some good quality bars (solid, not adjustable)?

For some reason, all of the bars sold in Canada are ridiculously expensive.

If you elect to get one from the states, via online shopping, consider the following (do a Google search for these);

-Mason Engineering
-Ireland Engineering
-Sparco
-Rogue Engineering
-UUC

All of the above are hingless designs. If you want to buy Canadian, Cosmos Racing is out of Montreal. They have a very good-looking aluminum (hinged) bar that looks a lot like the Racing Dynamics one, for about $200 CAD.

I'm trusting that you already have the X-brace installed? If not, do that first. From everything I've read, this makes a much bigger difference. As an added benefit, it also happens to be less expensive.

Thanks for the help. I just picked up the x-brace from the dealership a few days ago. I'm liking the rogue engineering bars. I see they also make a carbon fiber one, but how does it compare to the steel one in terms if stiffness?
Thanks,
Steve

How much did that x-brace run you?
