Get the APR since you can get it in blue and it is a really good bar. If you are going for only the best I would get a polished RMM since it is the stiffest.

yup I agree ^^ but carbing probably the stiffest of those two happywink

but apr is a nice and nicely priced thumbsup a bit lighter than RMM as well

I have the APR on my car and I can say that the car handles better than before.

a strut bar is a strut bar... there is no complicated engineering involved in the production of any bar, and therefore they are almost all the same...

some are made of aluminum, so it weighs 4 lbs less than a ss bar.

but the main differentiating factor resides in the inherent stiffness of the bars... for example, my Hypermotive front strut bar is known to be much softer than the rest - even reputed to be bent by hand

i doubt it could be bent by hand...

and if anything, carbing would be a softer strut bar, due to the bend placed in it from the factory and the fact that aluminum is softer than SS.

it's not a point of contention - it was bent by hand...
