Ordered for a MK2 1.6 2000 and delivery was ok: it look awesome in the engine bay.
The car is steady and firmer on corners and also on straight line, but the big difference in on bumps and holes on the road (here in Italy we've plenty of those ...) where the car absorbes better the shocks and less feedback on the wheel. Only 2 notes I hope are useful:
1) On the MK2 with a original airbox (with the "deep" U snorkel) could be difficult to put in place the snorkel after installing the bar: there is interference between these 2. In my case I pushed a bit and even if the snorkel is not perfectly inserted in the airbox it works. Well, anyway it's a good excuse to buy some Cold Air system :-).
2) The bar passes exactly above one of the spark plug, so if in need to change it could be a bit more difficult.
