Re: Need your opinion on neuspeed/spoon strut bars

^ just opinion. But if looks is what you're after, go for the one you like best.
If you choose the spoon bar, make sure it's legit. There are a LOT of fakes out there

Re: Need your opinion on neuspeed/spoon strut bars

I have the Spoon front/rear upper strut bars. It feels completely solid and I would highly recommend it but it is hard to find. Most likely around the $150 each range.

Re: Need your opinion on neuspeed/spoon strut bars

I doubt there is any diference in "performance" between the two. If its just for looks do what you want. I would have to say that the Spoon is the rarer of the two, you can still buy NeuSpeed braces new.

I have front and rear spoon braces and they seem solid.

Re: Need your opinion on neuspeed/spoon strut bars

The purpose of strut bars is to eliminate (or help reduce) body roll n twist. When u put a bar with PIVOT POINTS in it it allows the body to do just that. Therefore its just a shiny piece of metal that looks good but does vrry little unless welded. The neuspeed (imo) looks better as well as is %100 functional for what its designed purpose is. The ESP bars are great too. Long story short keep urs lol

Re: Need your opinion on neuspeed/spoon strut bars

It's real spoon. Here are the pics that I requested from the owner.





I may go for the spoon due it's rare and it will look much better in the engine bay because I have some chrome items in my engine bay. Thanks guys!

Re: Need your opinion on neuspeed/spoon strut bars
