    Roll cage suggestions?

    I am about to pick up a 1995 E36 M3 and plan on tracking it. I am looking for a 6 point roll cage, but I am not sure which one to choose at this point. I dont know if I can trust the bolt in cages, so I am a bit weary. Does anyone have suggestions/personal experience? Thanks!

    I'm going with a bolt in cage. Why do you feel you can't trust them?

    I question how well they will fit.

    Bolt-in cages are notably weaker compared to welded cages, and therefore not approved in most professionnal racing series. So whilst they provide a bit less security in case of a crash, they more or less equally stiffen the car structure and thereby improve the handling.

    Good explanation, I should be fine with the bolt-in then.
