      Swag overload

      Good product, adds rigidity to the vehicle & installation was really straight forward. Holds up really well and over all am pleased with it.

      A must for any hot hatch

      The Xbrace transforms the cornering control of the Mk6R less understeer and the rear feels so much more conceded .The fitting is simple with no need to remove any seats or trim. Only trim a few pieces of carpet. This should be standard factory fit and with out the sticker it looks OEM .

      a world of differnce

      this item changed my car completely! I installed it on my mk5 R32 and all the creaks were gone, the body felt stiffer in the corners and overall was a huge improvement. install took roughly an hour and was straight forward. I since got rid of the mk5 and upgraded to a mk6 R, this and the front brace are both on the top of my list

      Euro Sport Rear X-Brace Stress Bar

      Purchased a Euro Sport Rear X-Brace Stress Bar uncoated for my MK6 GTI. I've had it powder coated in Candy White and it looks GREAT! The instructions were very easy to follow and installation took roughly an hours time. Thank you for the awesome product!

      Great Product!

      Functions as it should and makes a big difference in the corners. I would give it five stars, but the nut serts are of mediocre quality and easily strip.

      Works great

      It makes the rear a lot stiffer,It does not drop into holes and dips like it used to.After this I ordered the front brace

      X-brace

      Bought this for my golf r. Made a big difference in cornering, making the car stay flat at all times. Would rate it 5 stars if it weren't for the hardware. The threaded rivets are very weak. 2 of them stripped out before fully torquing the bolts. Extras should come with the kit.

      Rear X-Brace Stress Bar

      Install was easy and went flawless. Instructions weren't for same year as my car, so taking out the rear seat was different than stated. The install is still the same, and very basic. Fit is perfect and looks good too. The car is stiffer and handles a little better in corners.

      Surprised

      I was pleasantly surprised to find this modification really changed the chassis feel in a positive way. Install was fairly straight forward and can't believe how rigid it feels in the car when you pull on it.

      WOW

      Had no idea how much chassis flex the MK4 chassis has until I installed this. Big difference, I highly recommend it.

      Like a Rock!!!

      All I can say is I love my R32 again. This made such a huge improvement it makes the car feel brand new again. No more rattles and squeaks like before and feels more connected to the road. Thanks eurosport:)

      oh my god!

      Just got mine installed last night and oh my god. If you're OCD like me and notice every creak and rattle than you'll love this brace. It has been said already but, just backing out of my driveway it was instantly noticeable how everything felt firm and solid. Cornering feels much more stable and my car feels less top heavy, also in city driving going over bumps my car makes less noise. Thank you Euro Sport for making an awesome part at an affordable price.
