Broken Factory Fender Strut Brace Mount Fix?

A long time ago, the factory strut brace fender mount on my '04 3.0i broke off (number 6 in the attached image, p/n 41007193040) and I am now looking to fix the mount. When it originally broke, I bought and used the ultra racing 3 point brace off of eBay as the fix. However due to a change in my local CCA autocross rules, this aftermarket brace will push the car into a higher class and I need to revert to the factory braces, or run without.

Has anyone encountered this issue before? If so, is this something a YouTube Certified shade tree mechanic like myself can fix or is this something a body shop needs to handle?

There's a bmw repair instruction for that.
It basically says to weld the facelift strut bar bracket in place (so welding required)

Dont run the car without the braces!

Welp. I am better at flying like a bird than I am welding, so guess i have to find a shop. Any link for the repair instruction? Couldn't seem to find one when searching here...

For now the eBay brace stays on!

I don't have the bulletin, but I bookmarked this page some time back:

Edit: There is a link to a bulletin in the last post in the thread linked above.

Hope that helps.

Here you are







I think there's one page missing (page 2) but you get the point.

This just happened to me.
Looks like this is probably the aforementioned ultra racing 3 point brace, and I bet it won't fit over an S54.
