BMW Strut Mount Reinforcement Plate (E46) - Genuine BMW 51717036781

Highly recommended for vehicles with upgraded suspensions

The E46 front strut towers are notoriously weak. This reinforcement plate comes from the poor road package and artificially adds another layer of metal to reinforce the strut mounting point on the chassis. If you drive with fresh suspension components at standard ride heights you likely won't have an issue. However, the problem can occur with performance suspensions and this is where these reinforcement plates can help you prevent expensive damage to your E46. Blown shocks and stiff suspensions will cause the sheet metal to pop up due to more energy being transferred.

Note: Can be placed into mounting location and do not require welding or special installation procedures.
