Euro Sport Upper Front Stress Bar - VW Mk5 2.0TSKU: 18081
Stress bars are an important bolt on for all water-cooled VW 's, whether it's for street or competition use. The design of our upper-front stress bars help to eliminate the roll and twist of the front sheet metal frame. Construction consists of heavy wall 1" diameter steel tubing and is welded to 1/4" thick steel mounting plates. Finished in gloss black powder coat.Euro Sport upper-front stress bars require no cutting of the firewall or body modifications. Unlike some of our competitor's bars, ours are true bolt-ons which only require drilling 4 holes! Our stress bars are designed and manufactured to fit properly!
Hardware and installation instructions are included. Requires drilling four small holes.

I wasn't sure if this would fit on my mk5 rabbit, so they offered to have me come by the shop to find out. Because I have an aftermarket intake, it fit perfectly. Raffi was super helpful and even gave me instructions and hardware for multiple mounting solutions. I ended up going with their stock solution and it was pretty quick to get in. It looks great and definitely adds stiffness up front.
Thanks for your feedback Jason :-)
