If you've got the Vemo or Vemo+, throw it in the trash.

If you've got the very reputable OEM AB Elek, you've got the same part as the BMW one.

I'm not aware of any other TPSs.

a lot of talk about the elongated mounting spots in the rear brace bracket. sure it's not a one piece bolt-in racing brace. and yes that would be best. if anyone felt need to, they could spot weld it in.
but lets not forget the BMW brace too has elongated slots..

Responds from Gosling himself...

Quote:
With regards to additional information requested please find the pdf attached

As to a few of the questions highlighted on the group buy.

The rear brace is designed and proven to support the axle carrier panel from vertical loads.

In doing so the torsional loads the axle is exerted to during spirited driving is greatly reduced due to the reduced twist customers can expect a better drive due to the stiffer rear chassis giving a positive affect on handling, in turn giving the driver more confidence.

We have taken on board with regards to the slot sizes in turret mounts and reduced them despite not having affect on the performance of the brace kit. The slots were designed specifically to aid installation as a result all of our customers have reported fitment was easy.

The kit has been design overall to provide effective results in prolonging and strengthening the chassis, without the need for welding and be as easy to install as possible.

Please remember this kit was designed by engineers with long term experience with the e46 chassis along side an aerospace engineer.

We are currently working on putting together a few vids to show visual proof of brace effectiveness.

We hope this is enough to inform potential buys

And for those who are tripping about the slots. Mason Engineering Brace has slots built into their bars for awhile now...

For attended purpose, they work just fine. Not sure what the grip is all about. I'm about to put this on my 1000hp/800tq M3...
