    BMR, UMI & Spohn all are good. There are some specific items that all of them might have that may specifically work better than others, but in general, all 3 companies are really good. If you get into looking for a torque arm, that is one item I would definitely do quite a bit of research on before buying.

    That's what I'm doing.

    I started with 3-point bolt ins (can be welded later if needs be), a tower strut brace (kinda pointless) and a tunnel brace as well.

    I'm staying with UMI all around. Contact Ryan from UMI with details of what your goals are and he can point you in the right direction.

    2nd that. 10,000 hard miles on the 3point bolt-in from UMI. No warping of the bolt holes and the finish looks great still. And of course the car handles better and has that solid feeling.

    Great testimonial on the bolt-on SFCs. I was leaning toward bolt-on just for ease of DIY installation (and I do not have a welder). I figured that I could just do a little tack weld on a couple/few spots if necessary later.

    Good to hear, I am sure you will be pleased with the fit and quality of the UMI products.

    For the SFC's, many customers do buy the bolt ins with the intentions of welding them at a later date. This allows you to install them right away and worry about welding them later.

    Thanks again,
    Ryan

    There is plenty of material to weld to later so you should be great with that plan.
