Does anybody know if his strut will fit an E46 sedan?

Any idea on torque specs for the fasteners involved ? I just installed one on my E46 325i and I used 18 ft/lb for the strut top nuts and 24 ft/lb for the bar-to-bracket nuts (using E46 strut top nuts for these).

Bentley's says 18 ft/lb for 18mm flange nuts & 25 ft/lb for 21mm flange nuts...the new longer strut nut has an 18mm flange & the standard nuts are 21mm so I went with that for starters.

So do the strut hat pieces fit the M coupe? Is it possible to maybe cut and weld and make the center bar fit?

E46 M3 Cab. Strut Brace

The documentation I received with my OEM strut brace indicated to use much of the existing hardware. I remember initially thinking that some bolts were missing. It took 15 minutes to install; a piece of cake. One bolt, however, needed encouragement. By the way, I somehow ended up with about a dozen of those plastic caps that I don't need. If anyone is interested, they're yours for a handshake.

Will you guys quit it with the political crap?

The only reason I don't nuke this thread is there is good info in it. Nothing constructive has been added.
