Lower Front Chassis Reinforcement E46 M3
This product is a very long and detailed build and it delivers just as much what goes into it. Please understand it can be up to a 3 month minimum once Order is placed. This is produced by hand and fit right to all 14 pickup points on available* in house M3 which is a very tedious and time consuming process with welding shifts and how many different planes the pickup points exist on.
If opting for the OE replicated, custom hand fabricated NACA air ducted removable skid pan, again, we’re taking about a lot of hand made customs work and time.
Item may come with small variations and or updates that differ on a small level with pictures of the original item seen in the ad. Just know if that’s the case you’re getting the best most up to date tech that we have for the item, or that some supply chains may be disturbed so we had to use a variation of something , but it will always be 100% true to quality and performance.
It Is advised to speak to me personally to go over the details of this kind of product before purchase. If yould like, of course , you’re welcome to do everything right here, and I’ll be in touch accordingly.
Available* : (in house M3 may not always be available)
The VICE brace
This is a multi functional steel tube structure brace that replaces the OE stamped aluminum sheetmetal pan. This is only compatible with the E46 M3 Platform With OE pickup points. It resides very high and NO lower to the ground than the stamped OE pan does. In fact I’m some areas is is hogher, but never higher than the oil pan it’s protecting while holding together the entire front lower chassis structure in a very effective manner. This combines with a P46 strut tower brace would bring optimum structural integrity conditions and handling adjustment will allow for more precise tuning now with less chassis flex being a factor.
The easily removable center pan helps gain convenient access to the bottom of the engine Bay Area. This has two tabs at the front that fasten directly to the OE ABS air dam. This dam will need minor radius cuts to fit around the front two middle bolt cups.
upadate: currently a two month minimum wait time for this item.
the brace and pan seem here are as of now one of a kind so they’re the only pictures I have, so be advised that the Naca duct skid pan is a variant option. If you do not choose this variant option you’ll receive the pan in A solid one piece brushed aluminum Finish with no duct.
these braces will he finished with “Steel it” brand polyurethane- stainless steel pigmented paint that we feel is optimal for a product that may see a lot of debris leaving finish imperfections that are very easily touched up to perfection with this product rather than being a complete loss with powder coat. You have a choice of silver or black which needs to be left in purchase notes. if you prefer powder coat, please see variants to decide which one you would prefer, and leave further explanation of your color choice in purchase notes following the proper variant selected.
LS/ Engine Swapped Builds:
the read cross tube of this brace WILL contact your oil pan, and or your headers and exhaust.
I can build this brace without that one tube.
please contact me directly to discuss options to help secure your e46 M chassis, esp with all of that extra power and strain.
****All products and orders subject to longer turnaround times during pandemic and while my vendors are effected or recovering from it. I count on several vendors or services to produce items I use to build these products, coat, bolt, pack and ship them.
