WMW Strut Tower Brace R52 R53

WMW Strut Tower Brace R52 R53 
WMW strut tower brace or also know as a strut bar for your front suspension for your 2002-2006 R53 MINI Cooper S, and 2005-2008 R52 Cabrio S.
Yes we know you seen strut bars before and think this is just another bar. Wrong, we took and fixed the issues other bars had and made it right. First off our strut brace mounts to billet aluminum strut tower plates to prevent mushrooming. We found others on the market claim to be billet and are actually extrude or porous aluminum allowing them to bend under hard impacts and not protect the towers.
Then we moved onto the bar. We made ours out of one solid piece of aluminum. This makes it as strong as possible and reduces flex even more. Bars made of multiple pieces have give at each joint reducing the stiffness they can provide. The bar is then attached to the strut plates with studs and nuts making it easy to remove and not worry about damaging the aluminum from bolts screwing in and out of of the plates every time you change the oil.

If you are concerned about strut tower mushrooming and looking for improved stiffness, then the WMW Strut Tower Brace (STB) is the answer.

The WMW strut tower brace is machined to clear the stock airbox & ECU or most aftermarket air boxes such as the DDMworks intake.

These are "scratch and dent" braces as these have some scratches and are not perfect due to them being moved around and scratches that were in the metal prior to anodize. But they fit and function fine, just a few blemishes.

the product seems to be quality, and is easy to install, HOWEVER I will write what I feel should be put in the information about this product in order to perhaps help someone else out. the following IS MY FAULT however IF this caution were either written in the description or came with some form of instruction, I do not think I would be in the mess that I am right now. IF YOUR TOWERS ARE ALREADY MUSHROOMED YOU MUST FLATTEN THEM DOWN BY BEATING THEM BACK WITH A HAMMER AND WOOD BLOCK, DO NOT!!!! TRY TO USE THE BOLTS TO LEVEL OUT THE PLATE. Because if you do there is a chance that the threads on the bolt will strip. Mine did and now I have a big problem where I have to either get a new strut of try to retap the bolt.
