If you ever fit a strut bar you may have interference problems. My mason bar did not like the good light

Ha nice (albeit expensive).

I see the light itself itself is also still available (63 31 8 350 554) just not the set as you say. Which iirc is nothing but the light housing + bulb + the switch.

Which you can also buy seperately.

Just checked on my car. The GT strut clears the space for the light more than enough.

So I'll definitely refit the underhood light onto the M3.
