You can fit this with a 13mm spanner without even jacking the car up and it makes an obvious improvement to the tightness of handling at the back. However, when fitted the brace fouled a section of exhaust pipe on the nearside and the exhaust back box on the offside as the tubular fittings that attach to the sub frame are too long for my standard UK Mk2. I remedied the problem by grinding off the corners which hopefully hasn\'t weakened the brace too much but turned a ten minute job into an hour or two of faffing. Fitting it upside down as some posts suggests wasn\'t possible.
Editors Note: Sorry to hear you had problems fitting this item. A member of our customer services team will be in touch soon to discuss the matter, as this bar should fit perfectly, particularly with a standard exhaust. Unless weakened mounting rubbers have caused the exhaust to sit out of line, there should be plenty of clearance. If we could perhaps get a photograph of the problem, we will certainly be in contact with the supplier for their comments.
