Fast shipping. Item arrived as requested with all necessary hardware for the installation. Fitment is on point.
Good product, adds rigidity to the vehicle & installation was really straight forward. Holds up really well and over all am pleased with it.
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 .
Thanks for your feedback Richard :)
Recommended product, in the last track day i feel the increment of rigidity, the rear following perfect the curve line
If I could give it 10 stars I would!
Thanks very much for your feedback :-)
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
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!
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.
Amazing product, definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants to improve their golf's handling
Thanks for your feedback Juan :-)
Perfect fit, easy install, great shipping time. I couldn't be happier!
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
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.
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.
What a difference the Euro Sport X-brace made on my Mk6 GTI, thank you :)
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.
Had no idea how much chassis flex the MK4 chassis has until I installed this. Big difference, I highly recommend it.
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:)
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.
