Okay - this thread is to gauge interest in people who want to purchase a Vibrant Strut Bar.

The order will be placed through CVR Motorsports ( http://mazda3.cvrmotorsports.com ).


People in Canada have been able to load up on these Vibrant Strut Bars though group deals on BCMazda3. Unfortunately, the people in the US haven't really had a good opportunity to jump on this since most US retailers don't carry the bar.

Here's a link to the Vibrant product page for the strut bar

Here's a How-To about installation from BCMazda3.com
http://www.bcmazda3.com/forum/index.php?topic=1464.0

As of Sept 27, 2005 - the tentative price estimate for the bar is $75 shipped... but Alaska and Hawaii will be extra. This announcement is intended for customers in the USA since Canada owners have had much more luck getting a hold of these Vibrant bars compared to US residents... If you would like more information about a Vibrant bar in Canada, visit http://www.bcmazda3.com

At this time, This bar may have fitment issues on Sedans equipped with the 2.3L engine. But, it should work fine on all Hatchbacks and sedans with the 2.0L engine.

-- --------------------------------------------------------

Update on Sept 26... it seems Vibrant may be altering their design of the bar to properly accomodate sedan owners. This may delay a possible shipment of strut bars to the united states. If this does happen, I'm sure Kevin will still be in contact with all of you to make sure you get the right parts - but sedan owners with the 2.3L may have to wait a bit longer than the other owners

Update on Sept 27... An initial batch of bars will be made available for $75. These bars are the original version that is a "risky install" to owners of 2.3L sedans since fitment is still in question. I guess sedan owners who want a bar that will definitely work will have to wait a bit longer - sorry :(

Does this actually do anything for the vehicle? I've read the rear is where you need bracing. I'd be interested if it were worth it performance wise.
