Test Drive After Install of Racing Dynamics Strut Brace
After installing my strut brace I wanted to see if I could feel any difference with the steering and feeling of the suspension. I was immediately impressed by how much the strut brace reduced flexing and movement between the two strut towers. I don't know why something like this did not come stock on the E39. In my opinion this is the cheapest/easiest mod you can do and immediately get something out of it

Strut Bar - Explained
What is a strut bar? How does a strut bar work? What forces act on the strut bar through the suspension? A strut bar, or tower bar, connects the top strut towers together, in order to increase the rigidity of a vehicle by allowing both strut towers to react to compression and tensile forces. A strut bar plays a larger role for MacPherson strut vehicles, however it can still be important in vehicles with double wishbones as well for compensating vertical forces.

Part 2: Installing shocks, struts and springs on a BMW 3 series 99 thru 05 (E46)

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In Part-2 of this two part series, we will replace the rear shock and spring. See Part- for the front shock/spring/strut replacement. The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if desired). PARTS USED: • New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.) • New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto, Eibach, etc.) • New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads, etc.) • New upper strut and shock mounts • New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required) • Rear shock mount reinforcing plates TOOLS USED: • Bentley Repair Manual • BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set • 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions • 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use) • 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set • Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers PROCEDURE: REAR (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but the E36 3-series uses the same steps and procedures): 1) Safely raise the rear of car, with suspension hanging. 2) Remove the wheels. 3) Place a jack under the lower shock mount eye or the wheel hub assembly. Slightly raise the suspension (just enough to remove the downward tension on the shock). 4) Remove the lower shock mount bolt. 5) Lower the jack and allow the suspension to hang free. 6) Remove the trunk side trim panel to access the upper shock mount. 7) Remove the two 13mm nuts from the upper shock mount, at the top of the shock tower. 8) Lower the shock out of the vehicle. 9) Assemble the new shock with new compression bumper, dust tube and upper mount. Be sure to re-use the large lower and upper washers for the upper mount. These washers must cup away from the mount. lower washer cups downward and upper washer cups upward. 10) If the spring is being replaced, it can be removed BEFORE re-installing the shock. Have a helper pull downward on the wheel hub assembly and pull the spring out from between the chassis and the upper control arm. 11) Using new upper and lower spring pads, install the new spring in the same manner as the original was removed. Install the new spring pads, then install the spring. 12) Install the new shock. Place a new shock mount gasket on the shock mount and insert the assembly up into the shock tower. If installing a shock mount reinforcement plate, place the plate over the two shock mount studs, on top of the shock tower, before installing the two nuts. Install the two nuts. Install the trunk trim panel. 13) Install the lower shock mount bolt. Be sure to install the washer on the bolt before installing the bolt. Use the jack to raise the suspension assembly to align the lower shock mount with the hub mounting point, so the bolt can be inserted and threaded. Tighten the bolt. 14) Repeat for the other side. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Carbon Interior Trim Conversion (Neffy Wrap)
There have been a few people who requested close ups of my interior trim on my E39 5-series. I put this quick video together showing the contrast between the OE wood trim and my "Neffy Wrapped" interior trim. In my opinion the difference is dramatic and it updates the look and feel of the interior of my car to something that would be newer. I was never a fan of the OEM interior trim on my 2000 BMW 5-series. As the years went on and I started to mod my car to update the look I felt that the wood interior trim kept getting more and more dated. When the E92 M3 came out I saw that the trim was a Carbon Fiber vinyl like material and I liked the dry carbon look vs. the wet carbon look.
