IMO, there's no point in either of those mirrors, because they are still too large for the Z3.

Re: Wanted - 6 cylinder Front Brace Strut

Definitely worth it. Makes the front much more consistent, and less pointy in bumpy corners.

I have a cheap one, and it's fine. You don't need a massive slab of ally. The forces are all tension and compression, and don't apply any bending moment to the brace.
