Any dealer can get the OE one, and the bolts. Just order the convertible strut tower brace and the six bolts, it bolt right on a '12/'13 coupe. There are some dealers that do mail order discounted prices. I put one on my '12.

I bought this one from BMR, bought it w/ no paint and had it chromed my a local company. I like this strut brace better than the one that comes on the convertible Camaro's.

GM Parts Direct is a good resource. That is where I got mine. Comes with bolts and good price.

Just to note,it must be a "late build" '11,early build '11s do not have the provisions for it.

It will not work on early 2011s. No bolt holes. Mine was built 6/12/10. And it did not come with the drilled strut tower bolt holes

Anyone aware of an available strut tower brace for my 2010 ... complicating matters is the Magnuson 2300 on top getting in the way of the BMR and Hotchkis ones... we tried. Thx

My car was built in November 2010 and I do not have the holes. I think this was around the transition period too.
