Not the same product, but shengsri has had something similar custom built on his MK3 for a while:

I was thinking about getting this... but wouldn't a rear sway bar be more useful?

I already have the steeda rear sway bar. Im just curious as to weather it would improve handling significantly more. It seems to be a quality piece.

This.
Nice looking piece if this is the look you are going for but its something I doubt most drivers will even know is back there.
Those competing or driving at 10/10ths may or may not notice but I doubt that most of us (who are driving and economy car tuned for the masses) are really going to benefit beyond the racy looks.

There's no way to know weather or not it will be effective in reducing body roll and improve handling without testing it.
