    Hi all,

    I've had to explain what this is a few times recently so thought this post may be helpful.

    What is an X-Brace?
    The X-Brace acts as a front lower strut brace.

    How does that improve handling?
    It improves the rigidity of the front end. At high speeds the car feels more stable as a result. The front also has less flex, meaning turn in speeds can be higher.

    Where can I find one?
    They were an extra fitted to E36 M3 Convertibles.

    How much does it cost?
    You can pick these up second hand for around £50 (I did!)

    What does it look like?


    If you have an E36, get yourself one of these as it really does make a difference, and for such little out lay.
