    can anyone give me some advice, i have a 323i coupe and i want to improve handling for track and road use, i have heard that putting a cross brace ( x brace) off a m3 will help, has anyone done this and did you think it was worth it,
    going to put shocks and lowering spring on also a full poly bush kit, plus strut braces front and rear,
    any advice would be great thanks

    They're better than the top strut brace.
    Fitting might need nutserts as they sometimes don't have the threaded holes in the subframe.

    You can get the nutserts from BMW, and you can fit them with a long bolt and some regular nuts, no need for any special tools.
