    I think it mounts where the x-brace would fit.
    Does nothing to protect the cats.
    Same chassis for a 328i.

    great! that would cover the oil pan... but i think the part in the picture (part 9) may cover the next part. I just don't know if it's an external part or it would go before the exhaust pipes...

    Would Part 9 still be available at the dealer?

    would anyone have contact info to a european dealer for these parts?

    Circle BMW contacted me back about these items and they said they are not available in the states but are available in Europe.

    Even though they are Euro parts, your local BMW dealership should still be able to get them. If not try Bavarian Autosport. Just have the BMW part number and they can get it. BavAuto got me Sport Evo grills for my M3, which is a Euro only part. I had the part numbers and they ordered them for me. It took a couple weeks to be shipped from Europe.

    Those were the old days. I used to get 323ti rear valences for my car. I doubt that I can get them anymore.

    BavAuto got me these euro grills about two months ago! Call BavAuto up with the part numbers you want, they can get them.
