My neighbor installed one of these on his M roadster. It was a good mod for that application, since the Z-chassis could do for some stiffening, and he's got enough torque to haul that bar around.
However, I dunno whether I would want that heavy a piece on my M. I will wait until someone comes out with a lighter model. You shouldn't need anything heavier than the bars we use as strut tower braces...
just my 2 cents.

I understand what it does, and how it's supposed to do it. But the damn thing weighs a TON!!! I think it is its own gravitational force generator. Must be that fancy flake powder coating on it. No offense to Paul or his company; this is a STOUT piece of hardware. I'm thinking this will take at least 10hp away from the car...he says jokingly... : )
