Do you notice a difference with the roll bar? I thought they had to be welded for effectiveness?

To be honest I haven't driven this car without the rear strut bar so I can't say for sure.

The previous owner said that he did notice the extra stiffness and I think I remember reading that he said that the rear wheel lifted when going into the driveway on an angle whereas it didn't before.

I wouldn't think that it needs to be welded in for effectiveness as it would work on the same principle as a front strut tower brace which is also bolted in.

After almost 4 years of owning a AW 128i and 2.8 years on this forum, I've finally completed my mod list (except my Tii front bumper)!

Excellent weather to wash + clay + wax the car for a quick photo shoot in the drive way
