Mein Auto: 1999 M Coupe
I'm not sure why there are no more pictures with the link but this will fix it. You will be a little disappointed in spending $30 when you see what you get but it definitely fixes the problem. I wish I had pictures of the bar I used to fix both of mine so you could copy it but they are lost somewhere.

When you pull the glovebox out, there is a 2 pound steel plate in the door itself that most of us pull out as well. You can get to it by removing the 4 screws inside the glovebox door. For some, that alone will fix the sag.

That plus the zipper binder full of manuals, almost 3 lbs of weight on the lid of a glovebox that in total weighs only a few ounces.

After removing the weight, and seeing that the kit did not fit well, and made replacement of the latch plate difficult, I sold the kit and was sag free without it.
