....I have UNIbraces fitted to my Mk5 GTI - Both UB and XB and they make a massive difference wherever you drive. Your car doesn't know whether it's on a road or a track - It merely responds to how it's being driven. Here in Europe there are plenty of bendy B-roads and roundabouts to enjoy the benefits of the UNIbraces and especially with a Quaife diff as well.
