    I got a SLP two point. they go for 125 bucks and work great. the car handles way tighter. biggest improvement I've felt out of all my upgrades. it only took half an hour to install too.

    anyone as long as it looks nice... and allows you to lean while working on the engine bay... the 3-point tend to make the windshield crack... yet it gives no handling benefits.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    i got A 2 point from hotpart.com [sponsor] and only thing i dont like is that i thought the holes for it were a little oversized.

    my SLP brace fit in no problem. and it came with all the hardware. not to mention it looks pretty cool with the black powder coat and SLP logo on it.

    lol at leaning on it. thought i was the only one that did that. bad part is mine is the curved ss brace so it is nearly against my wiper cowl.
    I have a run of the mill BMR. they dont seem to serve much purpose. just look neat

    I say for the money, BMR makes a good one but if you're not worried about dropping coin, go with Global West.

    Don't get me wrong...I have their STB. Didn't buy it directly from SLP though. Got it used.
    Doesn't do anything though. On or off....car handles the same.

    SLP has one or two parts that are worth buying. Airbox lid and the STB.
    Everything else is overpriced and nothing is backed by SLP.
    Part has an issue....it is the users fault because NO WAY they would sell a defect part.
    SLP = Rip-off Artists
