Latest track mod for 2017 M240 Found parts on local FB and eBay mounting hardware new BMW Easy install and cost in reasonable range with used parts especially since BMW recently lowered new price of carbon brace to around $600 which has pushed used units from 1-1.2k to $400-500

M235r and M240r has them we can to.
I have not driven it yet installed it last night

That sounds like a mistake on BMW's part. No idea if that's the case, but I don't recall parts prices being lowered.

Did you me strategic mistake or pricing error ?

The retail price is lower and they are discounting them to $646. At BMW parts deal My uninformed theory is that they may have been overstocked at factory and the years keep ticking since it was offered on new car

I was thinking a pricing error by BMW. That doesn't really seem likely, though, does it.
