Did a little research it looks like it will clear fine but we will test fit it first to be sure there is not any fitment issues. We are still looking for a car can anyone help?

Idle if you want to ship it down to Omaha I can test your mockup and provide adjustment details from a certified fabrication guy...

Byron, I have the prototype and I can confirm that it does not fit FI cars. It was designed to do so but needs to be re-worked as it lands directly on top of the SC BPV. Doug needs someone who has time/access to a good fabricator to work out the kinks if this is going to work on an FI car.

I wanted to be a part of this but I have zero time for extra car stuff right now.

Tom, just a heads up...
This does not fit FI cars. With Doug/DKF aproval, I would be happy to send it out to you. Just want to make sure you know what DKF needs. Right now the bar sits on top of the BPV. DKF needs someone to take measurements and go back and forth with a fabaricator until fit is perfet. There isn't much room for error in our engine bay.

I'm curious to know how you would adjust camber with OEM top mounts and a one-piece rigid brace?

You can't really do it with OE top mounts.
I would suspect most people that want this also have coil overs with camber plates.

Otherwise use camber spacers on the strut

Any word on if this can be done on a Saturday? I just picked up my Z4 M and I could make a trip down, but like someone else said, I work M-F during the day so I can't make it unless it's at night or a weekend.
