I have an RMM and love it but the APR is basically 100% the same bar and costs like a fraction of the price.

here's another pic of what i mean..the circle part is where the bar is rubbing against..and the red mark on the left show after you install them you will get the bump..cuz if you go out and look at it, there are like 2 or 3 raised up line so after you bolt it down those line will push the circle thing up...that's y it's raised up or have the bump..

Never heard of Megan Racing, but it looks exactly like the APR strut bar. Just get APR! Hey Spyder, you probably need to tighten your strut bolts a little more, or buy new bolts. It wouldn't just come loose on its own. rofl

The bar shouldn't rub. Its gonna be like 1/16 inch from the Hood. Before you tighten the bolts, have a friend pull the bar towards the front from the middle of the bar. Its a tight fit, but it won't make noise when you go around a corner. thumbsup

Trust me that sucker is on there as tight as it can go. It still pops and makes funny noises.

I have never heard a bad review about a Tanabe bar, go with that one. Its only $40 more for much better quality.
