Hi everyone. I wanna organize my first GB here. Josh at Achtuning tells me he can import S3 strut braces from europe (these are the kind that wrap around the strut tower, not just two-point fastening like the neuspeed ones) at a cost of about $72 each if there are 10 interested people. Shipping is $20.
This is the same brace used by gary handa (www.handa.tv). I'm fairly certain that since its an oem part it WONT come with instructions for mounting, or with 'nutserts' so I recommend knowledgeable or professional installation.
This suspension component will reduce chassis flex (if it didnt, why would it esist on an s3?) to some extent, but mostly it will look really cool. Plus, its OEM. For those of you thinking about buying a brace anyway, this price is very competitive with less effective aftermarket models. I don't know of anyone yet in the US who has this part on their VDub.... so be among the first.
Please voice your interest. Please also post photos of the brace if you got em! If you KNOW you want in on this sweet offer, email
me your name and telephone number where Josh can contact you. Remember, don't call Josh directly, since the brace will cost $25 more if you do.
I'll post more info as I get it.
edit: my email is [email protected]
