Great price that :hurray:

I can't see the pic's but can someone tell me if this is the one in front by the LCA's?

Wikus are you planning on making the one's for the rear? Like the CTI's and I think the Mk1 GTI's got?

That is the brace between the 2 control arm bolts.

Are you talking about the solid under the rear axle to stiffen the suspension?

Mk3 does not need a lower brace. Have you seen the huge chunk of steel that is the subframe? Not needed on a Mk2 or Mk3, unless you plan on pushing huge power or turning it into a dedicated track machine.

Do these strut braces sit as low (protrude below the car) as the older ones you guys were selling

The first picture is taken from the floor up and the second is taken level with the lowest part of the sump. Hope this answers your question. BTW picture taken on my track day car!

I've got an ADY currently in the GTS, Jash please let me know the outcome of this inspection...thanks :-)

I guess the best way would be to take the car there & test fit, if possible? Wikus?
