ChalupaJones I'm having trouble finding the part number for the strut brace. I'm going to ask shade-010

Roadworthy Good to know :) My best friend/roommate (bought our cars 9 days apart) has an early production 2012 and mine being a later production 2012. The only thing visually different is the head rests (mounting poles, whatever they're called lol) and the coil on plug connectors are different.

I'll take a look under the hood today or tomorrow and see which one he has for the brace. His car does handle very well but tough to say as he has more directional tires on now and I've only driven his a few times (SEL poss with sport package, mine being a loaded Ti but no Ti handling package).

There was a long thread about the brace, there are early STs with the thin brace and suspension clunk same as any other Mk3
The ONLY good thing about my early production model...

The ST brace does look a bit thicker let alone beefier. Price?

The main difference was that the mounting pads for the bar to the strut towers, it looks like the 2013 reverted to the original version from before may 2011 but with a different part number.

ChalupaJones The guys at rebel devil used an st strut brace off the ST with a couple ST struts and koni's in the back with v-maxx springs if I'm not mistaken. It sits pretty well too.
