    Fabricated a batch of this rear top mount reinforcement plates for some members. since I have to order a minimum quantity, there are some surplus sets.The aluminum alloy plates would fit the E30/E36/E46 and Z3 since all share the same rear topmount design.Its purpose is to reduce fatigue on top plate of the rear strut tower. Here's the pic:[​IMG][​IMG]RM90/pair only..

    Damn good price for these. Btw, am I right in saying that if I'm running a rear strut bar, the strut bar frame itself already acts as a similar reinforcement to distribute the load from the 2 tiny nuts up top?

    Yes you're right. This is for people who doesn't have a strut bar or isn't planning on getting on due to the limited boot space once you have a strut bar installed.

    Remove the 2 nuts, put the plate on and screw back the nut.

    On top of the rear top mounts, on the inside of the trunk compartment. Rather than having the two lock nuts putting pressure directly on sheet metal, it puts pressure on this plate instead which distributes it over a larger area.
