I bought a bar/brace a few months ago and wanted to
suggest you consider making some more. I've been very
pleased with the brace and tower mounts on my 200TQ20v
Avant and the difference is quite noticable.
The steering feels a lot firmer and tighter, which
provides the assurance i need when driving the car.
Additionally, the ability to adjust the front end
within factory specs is definitely an advantage over
other aftermarket bars.
Most appealing is the retention of the stock resevoir
and not having to alter the engine bay in any manner.
I'm hopeful my assessment of your product will spur
you to produce more for other owners.
