Suggestions for a lower stress bar? I see Eurosport sells them. Any other recommendations?

Nuspeed also has one or you can use the "K" bar from a 16v Scirocco. The K-bar will require drilling and tapping for the additional 2 bolts it will need is memory serves. They are all good and work even better if you have the top stress bar as well.

I believe that K bar is only for uppers. All lower stress bars I've seen, including Neuspeed are 2 point. Do you have a picture of the Scirocco "K" bar?

The K-bar only came on the 16v Scirocco and is a lower. It has 4 mounting points which is why to put it on any of the 8v cars, you would need to drill & tap the two extra mounting points. If it stops raining around here, I'll get a pic for ya. :D

We have 2 16v Scirocco's along with the cabby, so I'm pretty well versed on this one. :thumbup:
