Stop shopping Coxy!  ;D

Do you mean Rear Adjustable Torsion Bar kit or Rear Chassis Bar kit?
I'm tempted with the torsion bar kit but not chassis bar as i think the car is stiff enough.

Hahahahah, cant help it mate. I mean the torsion bar one.

I had one on my corsa vxr & it was one of the best mods I did. improved the handling so much. Was a whiteline one.

I think its a reasonable price for a quality torsion bar and its adjustable, but installation requires drilling holes into the rear axle?

Didn't realise it needed drilling. Does look a solid bit of kit though. SS wheels first I think and then onto suspension handling and brakes.

We could debate that until the cows come home  ;D

But it does serve a purpose, not just a pretty piece - to make the car more over steerey... (is that a proper word?)

I have never tried one
I have done loads of track days with 235 Bhp in my little 500
But the option is there for those that want it
I feel best mod is big brakes
