Needed: struct tower braces

Hey guy, so somehow my stock brace bar that goes from the firewall to the strut tower broke. Apparently that's an odd thing to break. Anyone have an leads on where I could find one? Someone here have aftermarket ones and want to sell me the stock part? Or any tips where to find it? Apparently bmw parts for this are 3-4 weeks, but during all this nonsense it could be 2 months I am told.

Are you referencing the two diagonal braces shown in this diagram ( https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=51_4958 )?

BMW PN 51717026274 seems to be in stock with 2 day shipping at ECS / Turner / etc.

If you're looking to upgrade, Strong-Strut is definitely the way to go.

If you're just wanting OEM replacement, I have my two stock ones from when I upgraded that I'd be willing to sell.

This one will not work with the S54 as it interfereswith the ventilation hose, it's for non M Z4 only.
