Here's a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the items information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item is worth.


If listing a car
-Post the year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it is currently at and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires
-Post the brand and model
-Post as many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. If tires, any gashes, bubbles, cupping and curb rash

-As many pictures as possible of every wheel

WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for other forums. Either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Only bump your thread once a day. You are allowed to respond to others more then once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    I got mine months ago and it was like that as well. I emailed about it but never heard back. I'm guessing it isn't as rigid as the original.

      Seems like it wouldn't be. I'm going to call tomorrow. I don't like the idea of getting something different than expected. On top of that you not getting a response back seems off as well. Anyone else have any input?

          Called today and the response over the phone was "oh, it didn't have the gussets? That's not good." Guy I spoke to said he needed to talk to his boss and would call or email me back. Got a email later stating that it was a design change to allow for aftermarket sway bars. I don't fully get this because the gussets are on the bottom of the brace. If the sway bar was to hit something it would hit the top of the brace before the gussets on the bottom, no? At this point I don't really care anymore. It's going on the car. I will say the guy I spoke to on the phone was very helpful and I got a email response back very quickly.

              Keep us posted as to what you actually get when it does show up. I'm surprised you haven't got it yet. I ordered mine on Thursday before Black Friday and got it early last week.

                When I got mine I paid $20 extra for the one that clears aftermarket bars. Maybe the website should show both versions so that everyone is aware of what they get. Seems funny to charge more for a piece with three less gussets and less welding. Maybe I'm missing something here ?

                  The gussets have been removed (around 9 months ago) due to conflicts with aftermarket sway bar. Aftermarket companies are not consistent enough with bends. Same type bars would clear in certain cars, and not in others. To become more consistent and make sure we stand by the claim that these clear all aftermarket sway bars, we had to remove the gussets.

                    Order one a few days ago. I called them today and they told me they will add the gussets back on at no cost if you ask for it. So I told them I would like the gussets on mine. Should ship out early February. I will let you know what I get.

                        I'm in the process of installing my x-brace. As of right now, it won't work with the red 46 sump armor without a bit of work. Part of the brace covers the bolts that go through the steering rack (looking at it from the front end).

                        These bolts are open and accessible when using the sump armor.

                          An update. Got the x brace installed. Great quality item. Haven't gotten it on the road yet, and i can't say for sure if it tightens everything up. I'm doing new springs, shocks, sways, strut brace and subframe all at once. On to the pics.

                          It won't work with the red 46 armor. The brace extends towards the front of the car and it would cover the bolts that go through the steering rack.

                          What it looks like head on- I could really use a skid plate with this. Nervous about hitting it against something.

                          Here's how it fits with UUC front sways.

                            Looking at your front on shot there, I'd be concerned with how low the x-brace hangs. The e30 sump is already vulnerable in lowered cars, and it looks a good inch lower than the sump?

                              Yeeeaaaaahhhhh. Check my most recent post over in members rides. It scrapes bad for how low I am. I'm taking it off.

                                lol holy hell that hangs low. I'd be afraid it catches something and sheers something off my car.
                                I really wanted one and was concerned with fitment due to my massive downpipe, but this is another issue in itself :^(
