Never break another aluminum transmission cross-member again!
"Between two different E36 vehicles (My off-road rally car and my turbocharged E36 sedan) I have replaced 5 of the factory aluminum transmission cross-members. One performance shop we spoke with said they have replaced more than 100 aluminum cross-members over the years on BMW E36 cars."
Needless to say, when you break a transmission cross-member while at full throttle, it can be a scary experience.
To end this problem once and for all, we now offer a steel replacement transmission brace to replace the factory aluminum piece found on all E36 car with the ZF 5-speed manual transmission. Models which will benefit from this bullet-proof piece;
E36 328i 328is 328ic
E36/8 MZ3 Roadster and MZ3 Coupe
E36/8 Z3 Roadster and Z3 Coupe
The part is mil-spec black zinc plated for good looks and rust protection. Laser cut, CNC Bent, TIG Welded for factory fit and high strength.
