Terry - Matt has an E90 wagon.

The RSMs are a new, stupider design that makes it impossible to remove from the bottom as it’s just bushings clamped to the body.

If it fits, the M3 style strut brace does allow access to front struts, though.

Rust? What rust? If I pretend it's not there, then it doesn't exist.

And yeah, my wagon is an e90.

Wasn't it an E46 the last time I saw it? I seem to recall bamboozling my dealer to replace your Sirius receiver (in one of my custom wagon mounting brackets). Or am I going (already gone) senile?

You must be thinking of someone else?

I have an E46 sedan and you installed my phatbox in like 2003.

I got this E91 wagon last year.

Whoa, that is a crazy design! I won't complain about peeling back carpet in the rear of the FRS to access mine again.

Do you like the Konis? I only had Bilstein Sports on my old BMW, but I don't remember anything too crazy with the E36 design. Are E90 sedans the same design?
