So I received my Turner Motorsport front strut brace today. Does anyone know what I should torque the strut bolts to? Also, those of you who have the TMS brace, did you adjust the length of the bar or leave it as received? I"m also assuming I should tighten the brace hardware (bolt with nylon lock nut). It comes very loose.

Nevermind...I found it on newTIC.info. Strut tower bolts torque spec is 56 N-m (41.3 ft-lbs)

30Nm + 90deg for M8 bolts, 56Nm + 90deg for M10, although I sure as heck didn't need 30Nm of torque to break the bolts loose from the factory (used my torque wrench)!

Post Upper adn Lower front Ultraracing strut tower brace fr f30

Hi
I've an F30 320i
i've installed upper front Strut tower (Ultraracing)UR-TW2-3744
and I bought the lower front one UR-LA2-2543,, but the problem was that I have to remove the Underride protection (part number 31146850067)
Does any one has a way around this?? Maybe one had cut through the underride protection ?!!
Ah btw,,, the front upper strut tower brace really does a good job in holding up the front of the car,, I wish I can install the lower one without having to remove the shield,
Thx
