Pink strut brace worth it ?

Lost the bid but seems I get another chance to buy for 39 GBP as the first bidder did not complete.

Does anyone know if this is worth it ?

Tell me more. The guy says it's one for an STi.

Why ? Those thingies produced by STi and copied by some :cen ?

Any idea how I can recognise a copy from a genuine one ? Any ideas when you look at the pics of this ?

Thanks Peter !

Hi I bought my f/r ones from "powertuningsales" on ebay, for my STI, look similar to the one shown. may i suggest you look him up? as they were spot on (rear was a bit of a pig to fit, but thats the car).
Car handles so much better with both.

Sounds like I better get a genuine Subaru bar if I want one.

Is the carbon one worth the extra compared to the aluminium one, or is it only to save 1 lb, i.e. about the difference between getting in your car before or after having had a number one :wink:

Carbon one, difference is mainly styling. Which ever floats your boat

Me I would go for the Carbon one to compliment my bonnet

:lol2:

As I'm the only one ever opening the bonnet and that does not happen often... I'm more a person looking for technical efficiency.

I am still not sure getting a brace is the right thing to do. I am getting the Prodrive Spring Kit to get the understeer a bit away. Part of the plot is also that it makes the suspension softer, which should result in better grip on ice. Not quite sure yet whether getting a brace 9which should make the thing less flexible again) will help. :?

:lol2:

I think getting to Powerstation will be the trickiest bit 8)

Maybe that going through this conversion will be a bit over the top for another 8 months of car.

I'll stick to the springs and otherwise... I'll just get used hitting snowwalls

Alot of these are made by just average companies.

If you look at the difference between them to the GT Spec/Cusco you see why the latter is more expensive.

For looks i would say go for ebay

If you want the most out of your car, then go for GT spec/cusco

its like comparing a hks fmic to some of the cr@p on ebay

Well... kinda small detail: I suggested doing service in Belgium when you live in UK. That's about 200 miles if you live in Oxon and a 1h ferry.

If I come from Finland to UK for service, it's about 2000 miles and 4 ferries, of which one takes 11h to cross :lol2:
