This brace is holding the bottom from movement, that's the only piece that is solid. The top mount is rubber but still maintains some movement, like a pivot point.
The bolts would most likely break and stretch before the subframe cracks.

I'm having a fitment issue with the BMS Differential Brace... I ordered the small differential for the category that I have a 2009 E90 (AT). Enclosed within are photos of me trying to line up the BMS Differential Brace to the holes of the rear differential and does not align. Did I order the wrong style of BMS Differential Brace or am I doing something wrong to properly seat the BMS Differential Brace into position?

Email me if you can and I'll work it out. Could be something that stretched during bending but still passed fitment QC for angles.

I installed mine about a week ago. Fitment was good. I noticed a difference. I have an 07 so I had to drill the holes from the frame. Wasn't too bad.

Yes we've found that we're going to need to slot the holes a bit next batch as there is more car to car variance than expected. You can slot them yourself with a file or we can swap that one for a brace with larger slots if you need.

Hi, what about noises coming from rear diff being connected firmly to the subframe?
I have M3 bushings and had real noise problems after installing firm diff rubber bushings. They had to be modified as I had to wear ear protection when driving my car. Oh and I have a smfw too, which is the source (with transmission) of the noises...

Maybe you should take another look at the pictures I posted above.dont think you looked at all that's posted.yes filing the hole that mounts to diff cover I'm ok with that,but filing the holes that mount to subframe would say not a good idea.Look at the picture of both holes and are way off,other company's that make same style diff braces seem to not have a issue installing.My .02

We can swap it for one with the wider slots if you prefer, just email us.

Just email Payam and he can switch it out for you, if it's not lining up.

Yes on the subframe side some cars don't have holes, others have holes but they can vary a bit. The easy fix is to drill the holes where you need them. For the next batch of these we're going to add slots rather than just holes to better allow for car to car variance.

Does this piece add any extra noise or vibes to car? Similar noises and vibes like solid trans mounts make?

Good question. I haven't noticed any on our development cars. Maybe others can chime in.
