WOW. That guy is being a complete dick. I have been wanting to do this mod for as long as I have been on this forum and found out about it. I have seen several people on this forum with the bar claim that there is a big difference in the feel. I do like how you pointed out that Audi should be the one he should be talking to. I am with you. I want to see proof (pics or video) of his so called "string theory" lol.

Well the accuser joined Vortex 3 weeks ago, so maybe he's just trolling.

Well, I gave you a + on it. I also reported him, not that they'll do anything. We have better moderators ;)

Can't speak on how it might help under race conditions but on the highway I find the A6 bar to be a benefit. Car tracks better, less steering correction is needed to keep it going in the intended direction. I used two bolts to anchor it to the secondary fire wall.

Keith, do you have any more of those strut bars? I am interested for my 2002 wagon if it will bolt up. About to install the whole febi control arm kit and maybe coilovers at the same time...could use a strut bar too!

The Audi A6 upper front stress-transfer bar has the most noticeable improvement if your Passat is driven in an area with lots of poorly maintained roads. The front end feels more solid going over bridge approach expansion joints and that evil spot in the road where pavement has started to spall on the left or right-hand side(s).

When one front tire goes over any bad spot (typically pavement repair which is half-ass at best), the stress (from bad pavement spot) is transferred to the opposite strut tower...making the entire front end feel more stable.

Seems legit.

edit: I'm not saying a reverse google search of his username would reveal some embarrassing things, but I'm also not not saying that either *cough*pof*cough*

:p
Oh damn.
