These are excellent ARBs that do make a considerable difference in flattening out roll on corners, however, it must be remembered that no one part of suspension mod must be carried out in isolation. My Mk3.5 is a Sport Black model, to all intents and purposes a Sport-tech model, this means it comes as standard with the Bilstein shock absorbers, I have also had the -30mm Eibach springs fitted. The car has done in the region of 8500 miles. What I have notced since fitting these ARBs is that the car is a bit more jittery on road surfaces with unevenness at high frequency, close washboarding if that makes sense to anyone, it just seems that the shocks are less able to react to this particular road surface, conversely, if you are on a road surface with deep wallowing humps and bumps, the car itself wallows a bit. Perhaps time for me to be reviewing the shocks themselves and get all these part working together rather than against.
Overall though I am pleased with this product it has made a noticeable difference ton the car's cornering on ideal road surfaces.
