Thanks for letting us know about the Cusco Rear Bar :)

Got mine installed today... The bar costs $290CDN... I would have purchased their front solid bar if I had known earlier...

After installation none of the styrofoam fits unless you cut accordingly...
What is the driving experience now?
Same as before... Perhaps it would be better with a solid front bar!!
Perhaps but it might only make a harsher ride. The front strut towers are quite close to the firewall which would reduce flex. I can definitely detect a difference in road feel with the STI bar. I don't think I'd want the solid one.

I suspect if you were doing autocross you'd absolutely know the difference.

Back in the summer I did some driving and cornering after installing the bars trying to find some enhancements, but couldn't. It could be my driving skills or inability to detect the differences... Perhaps you will know if you drive my car :)

Now I have winter tires and hardly do fast cornering...

I felt a more significant improvement after replacing the factory Falken with a set of Michelin Premiere tires... The bars, not so much...
