I am waiting to see if the M3 comes with one like in the spy shots. If so, it would likely be a direct bolt on.

Might want to cancel that - from the pictures that bar's clearly for the N20 motor - it'd run right into the front of the N55

this seems lk it will fit the straight 6, cuz the bar goes on top of the engine cover instead of in front of it.

CF is better, lighter, harder and best cosmetic look.

Any change in stiffness? or more like placebo effect?

Definitely noticed a change in stiffness as soon as I left the driveway. I am lowered so I did have to take the ramp sideways which led to the chassis wanting to torque more than under most driving conditions. The car has a more "on rails" feel now for sure though. Not a single moment of buyer's regret since installation!
