Rear strut tower reinforcement for true coil over

As per title how necessary is this on the Z4M coupe?
Is anyone running a proper coilover without reinforcing this area?
Those that have reinforced, anyone done it without a cage, what solutions have people used?
The intrax kit I will be getting has an RSM design similar to the Rogue item with a substantial reinforcement plate, could this be enough? I've spoken with them directly and whilst they advise there could be an issue they have never heard of such.
TIA

I would like to hear any input on that as well.

Although for our limited production car, unless you do it yourself, chances are you won't find any aftermarket parts.

Thanks for the reply! I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone here
Spring rates will be fairly soft for street use, with race rates reinforcement has definitely been advised.
I know for a fact there are cars running out there with a full coilover in europe without reinforcement, but I have no idea on miles and usage, anyone on here??

I'm only aware of one instance of this and that was running a cage. Those who have tried w/o a cage?it hasn't been pretty.
