    anyone know where i can source a rear upper strut brace (would a coupe one not fit? as the wheelbase is the same width is it not?)
    Are lower strut braces produced for the e36 at all?

    Anyone know rol bar sizes between diff models?

    Thanks in advance.

    What engine do you have in the compact?
    If it's the M44 then look at the http://www.schmiedmann.com/ and search this part number: T364FME

    That one should fit

    dont need to worry bout the front, thats sorted.
    its rear upper im after (yes the in boot one), also you can get lower (chassis) braces for some vehicles. Ive yet to fully check out the chassis with regards to set up as ive only just got my compact.

    My old scooby had upper n lower braces front n rear.

    The e36 coupe strut braces don't fit just to let you know (I made that mistake).

    They occassionally crop up on pistonheads parts and ebay so keep your eye out!
