Early Christmas Present! Thanks ECelica!


Last night I got my APR Flex Bar!!! thumbsup Shipping was SUPER fast (and I live a long way from California) and the product and service from the ECelica store was amazing as always. If anyone is looking for an inexpensive mod for their engine bay, this bar is fantastic. If I can find where I left my camera I'll post pics later but I won't be able to really test it until the roads melt (so like around April) Thanks again Isaac and everyone at ECelica. To anyone who hasn't ordered anything from the online store but is thinking of doing so...it's worth it thumbsup

Quick question though...my stock battery tie down has "two" fasteners, the APR replacement has only one hole to tighten it down. What do I do with the other fastener bar thing? - right now it's just off to the side.

you dont need the other fastener close to the firewall, the bar serves itself as the fastener for the other side thumbsup

Yep, this is what I figured thumbsup The bar is holding the battery down, the other fastener thing just kinda fell off to the side and I figured I didn't need it anyway.

*Update*
I couldn't find any twisty roads, so I just changed lanes like a psycho all the way back home today. There is a HUGE improvement in the handling and stability of the car and it feels more solid in general. Here's some pics for y'all...

Haha! I installed the APR Bar in my dealer parking lot using their 12mm ratchet cause I didn't have one. The dude in charge came out and was checking my ride out and saying how he thinks it's so cool when people trick their cars out, loved my Intake and talked about some cool stuff they had at SEMA...sweet! thumbsup
