    strut bars broke again

    hi all,
    needed some advice on my car. I have a 2005 z4 3.0 ( still under warranty)

    this is the 3rd time the strut bars ( both sides) have broken off from where it is welded on to the strut braces. The dealer simply says he will weld them back. i am sick of that as this is the same thing he did past 2 times and it still broke. ive asked him for cross strut bars but he says BMWNA wont do it... any thought? only 5 months of warranty are left and i am sure they will break again and again.

    thanks
    g

    Sorry about that. My post did not come through. Must be user error.
    Anyway, what I said was that repairs done by a BMW dealer are covered for one or two years seperate from the car's warr. so if the weld breaks after they repair it the dealer will need to fix again. They may get tired and put the strut brace in.

    carbon fiber

    are carbon fiber cross bars recommended or any better than regular ones? in the past the strong-strut team is the only one who have commented on it and since this was not their product, they have trashed the carbon fiber cross bars as an inferior product.... any thoughts? thanks
