Well made piece of kit. However if you have a MK 2.5 I cannot recommend that you buy this item as it does not fit without rubbing on the exhaust backbox on both sides of the exhaust, also many (if not all) mk 2.5's already have a factory fitted brace in this area. This is with a standard back box too. I tried the suggestion of mounting it upside down, but it will not fit at all like that.
When I fitted an aftermarket backbox the situation got slightly better in that it stopped rubbing on the drivers side, but it rubbed still on the passenger side. Specifically it rubbed against the end of the CAT/midpipe section of the exhaust. That part of my exhaust is a standard part. I will refit the brace, but only after I have had a custom midpipe/CAT pipe made (I am doing this for other reasons anyway) and I will show the fabricators the brace and where it needs to fit.
