When fitted in conjunction with my Yarrowsport rear strut brace and (soon to be) HPA Motorsport Club Sport Roll Bar then I think my R will be well and truly ready to take on the Nurburgring in August.

that looks the dogs, I presume that the rear seat still fit after it has been installed?
That is correct, the rear seats still fit after the TST Stressbrace has been installed.

TunerShop hope to have the stressbraces from the manufacturers by the end of this month at which point they will be shipped out. I am just waiting for a final $ figure from Tunershop including shipping (they accept payment via PayPal).
Did you ever get a price shipped on this ?

I'm really fancying one of those .

Oh and how did you go on with the mkv keyfob ? I saw a post somewhere ages ago about it .
I have been advised by TST to wait until the end of this month to get a price including shipping because they will have to take the item to the post office to get a quote but they wont have the item in stock until month end.

Still havent got around to testing the MkV keyfob, I will be sure to post up as soon as ive tried it :)
Total price for me including the following extras and shipping was $366.75

TST Stress Brace
T-Handle : $8.50
Heavy Duty Rivet Tool : $40.00
Stainless Steel Bolts : $5.00 for set.
