Would Buy Again
Installed on a completely stock MK7.5 GTI. I came from a modded MK7 GTI and wanted to do things a little different this time. The X-Brace is a huge improvement in more ways than one. Driven hard you 100% know its there. It also got rid of the chassis/hatch creak pulling in and out of my driveway (slight hill). Very easy to remove if you do need the extra space, but not really in the way. Did not use the provided Nutsert tool as I already had a tool but did crush one (they give you an extra) in a scrap piece of sheet metal using provided tool and it seemed to work fine. As an added bonus and part of how I convinced my women to let me spend money, its a perfect place to slap bumper stickers when we go places. Would buy again and 100% recommend to every MK7 owner I know
Thanks very much for your feedback Brandon :-)
EurosportAcc Rear X-Brace for MK7/7.5/R
Just thought I'd post a quick review of the Eurosport rear x-brace. I drove from Vegas to pick this up, install it and drive back. Install is very straight-forward and quite doable with minimal mechanical knowledge. Instructions are very clear, all hardware is included, and all you'll need is basic tools and a drill. This thing makes a huge difference! The fitment is perfect and doesn't limit trunk/hatch space one bit as it sits right up against the back of the backseats. Tiny creaks and groans are all but eliminated when going up onto or coming off driveways and taking an on/off-ramp at speed is now truly fun with the added stability and stiffness this bar provides. A definite chassis mod to stiffen up the car and get rid of noises. Awesome customer service as always!
