If you are considering buying this, just do it! I've just added front and read chassis braces to my '96 Mk1 1.6l which didn't have them factory fitted and it makes a big difference. Not just handling is improved even more, but the ride is much more comfortable over bumpy roads and those damn thick paint strips on the way into 30 mph limits! The car feels more predictable and stable when cornering at high speed but I'd say worth it for the ride improvement alone.

Dead easy to fit, instructions from MX5parts are better than manufacturers but IL Motorsport's website has lots of photos from different angles so you can check where they go (referred to as "connection rod, front):

Most difficult bit is getting 17mm spanner under bush to hold bolt, nothing needs removing though just might take a couple of goes to get hold of the bolt head.
