To quality piece of kit this. All holes are slightly slotted to give an exact fit and apart from pushing the intake tube slightly to one side, it fits like Mazda made it. Leave the rear bolt of the intake out and it all fits fine. The actual bar itself weighs almost nothing and the brackets are nice thick, 5mm steel.
I fitted mine with both BSP chassis braces and can strongly recommend fitting all three, even though the Mark 2 has braces front and rear already.
On the road thrown into a roundabout with complete abandon at previously dangerous speed that would have caused complete understeer, it seems to four wheel drift slightly instead, but basically holds its line and recovers far more quickly. Over quick frequency bumps it's completely lost the jelly wobble effect and with my hard top fitted the whole thing is completely taut and stiff.
Top kit, well worth the money!
