Looks just like the OEM A6 one except about a inch shorter. Is that a pic of the actual one? Is it welded together or bolted?

This is a feeler only to see if there would be any interest in a B5/.5 Front Upper Stress Bar/Brace. Price would be around $150. Would be made from Aircraft aluminum and using Audi Factory endlink brackets,
No drilling required, just bolt on.
Can I ask what grade Aluminum you will be using? There really isn't such a thing as "Aircraft aluminum". It's more commonly used in marketing schemes to make you think your getting good stuff. Aircraft use all different types of aluminum, but for structure mostly 7075 grade is used.

Pending additional info requested above, I'd also be interested...
$150 includes shipping in the US right? :)

I would probably go with 6061-T6, It has been used prior and works great. I wasn't specific in materials yet as this is just a feeler.
