E36/Z3 Heavy Duty Transmission Brace

E36/Z3 Heavy Duty Transmission Brace

Never break another aluminum transmission cross-member again!


Between two different E36 vehicles (An off-road rally car and a turbocharged E36 sedan) the team have replaced 5 of the factory aluminum transmission cross-members.  One performance shop we spoke with said they have replaced more than 100 aluminum cross-members over the years on BMW E36 cars.

Needless to say, when you break a transmission cross-member while at full throttle, it can be a scary experience.


To end this problem once and for all, we now offer a steel replacement transmission brace to replace the factory aluminum piece found on all E36 car with the ZF 5-speed manual transmission.

E36/8 Z3 Roadster and Z3 Coupe


The part is black powder coated for good looks and rust protection.  Laser cut, CNC Bent, TIG Welded for factory fit and high strength.
