I have them installed on my car.. It fits in properly for all models I guess.. Even thou it said it was for the 2008 model which is for the pre facelift cars.. It actually fitted quite nicely on my 2014 one. I'm not sure about the rear one but after installing the front strut and the under front bar braces; I feel like the car is more rigid and stiff.

I just had delivered all of the Ultra underbody bars. Will put these on sometime in March, and report back my initial impressions as well as after a couple trackdays. The bars are very sturdy and well-made. Good welds, the right mounting points, and the right material (steel) and size for them to actually make a difference. They were inexpensive enough that I thought I'd give them a shot.... we will see.

I'm definitely interested to hear if there is much of a difference!

Well.. I'm pretty sure Ultra Racing is going to have a one more customer and some more if you'd be posting them up for sure. It does make a difference on my car thou.

Nice reflective tape too, I did the same. By the way, you'll see some benefit from doing the lower airbox portion as well. All that heat from the manifolds/headers is right beneath.

I just bought this as well, I saw a ratchet in your picture, so assumed you installed it yourself.

I am wondering how did you install it? did you need to lift the car up? since it is suspension mounting screw not bolt like the other cars. I fear once I remove all 3 screws on one side, that will cause the suspension to slide to the side due to car weight.

thanks,

Tbh. I didn't lift the car or anything. I just happen to unscrew em' and just put it and bolt it back on. The rachet was actually for the intake. I was taking the whole intake and the photo was when I was putting them back on. I was tightening the clamp. xD

Thanks for the tip but I'm waiting for them as well. I thought it would be enough but actually I didn't even have enough to finish it too. Some areas are still left so I'll be onto them once I get the tapes. I think I've ordered more than enough this time.

Update: Had my bars installed but the main 4point front portion dont fit on my car or possibly other c63s that have AR headers . the 4-1 Collector drops lower then other headers so it either has to be made to fit orit doesn't fit. everything else fits perfectly fine.
here's few pix
center bar

So Harry at Bergen Imports finished everything up and he did some fabrication to the main bar to fit and this is what it all looks like.

Those bars look good. Can you feel a difference from the seat? Good job by Harry to get them to fit and you can't really tell.

Hmm.. That's strange.. I didn't have a hard time installing it at all. I just took off the bolts and then put it in there then adjust alil all around the places before totally tightening it. Also one more thing just in case.. Take off all the rubber mouldings off the lines and install it first then try to install them back on later. I couldn't get it on at first too.. I had to do it that way.

I haven't swapped the ones in the corner which is like a slope. I jacked up the car to swap the one near the gbox but the other ones were so hard to loosen the bolts so left it be. I'm actually trying to get my hands on the rear section parts. I'm pretty sure they will be useful since I haven't see anything on the car as a OEM. Most of the front parts are included in my car as a OEM.

Also I'm curious about the OE 4 Point one. Which one do you reckon that you would actually use? Like is the OE ones smaller than the AFMs?
