    Yeah i noticed that item as well.

    Most i have seen look different from that though. And the OMP one i am sure has two bars.

    I have one of the top ones, it doesnt fit properly.....pulls down on my battery and the brake fluid resevoir. Also pushes the bonnet up.......i'd go for one of the OMP ones, not sure if that would even work though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Thanks for the input dude, good feedback and always useful to know these things /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    Why do you still have it fitted if it's such a bad fit though?

    Cause it took me 20mintues to put it on lol... trying to find where it went as there were no clear spaces. It does help marginally i tested, also looks good /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I would strongly advise against getting one....if you want one, you can have mine when i get my new one /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Would be interesting to see if it made much difference.

    yes thats what i have, mine is a 1998 pre facelift model. must have been standard fit on the v6 tdi as it was on the car when i got it and it came from a leasing company so cant see anyone retro fitting it.
