E46 M3 Strut Bar Use: PnP with factory length strut mount studs. Excessively long studs must be shortened to use any cap nut design.
Dinan Strut Bar Use: You must widen the holes to 10.2mm to use these cap nuts. It's a very simple drilling process for a polished look in the end.
Other Strut Bar Use: Ensure end plate thickness is greater than 4.2mm as the centering shaft of the cap nut is 4mm long. Failure to ignore this will result in a strut brace end plate that is not properly torqued down.
