:thumbsup:
I've purchased & used both the 2 point and the 4 point rear braces from Liam/Murr (BMR Racing). the 2 point made a noticeable difference, however the 4 point rear brace made a huge difference when really pushing the car.
weld quality was rough but solid on the first brace (purchased a year ago), the 2nd brace (4-point) was considerably better for weld quality, but was much harder to fit. murr has informed me that all the newer braces now use slotted holes to allow for minor fluxuations between shells. a good value, but the 4 point bar is probably overkill if you're not racing your car or doing some autocrossing. there may be some interference w/ the rear seats (4 point), the rear of my car is empty so i can't comment on this.
quality has been improving with each batch, i'm currently awaiting a new front upper brace. :thumbsup:

I also have a two point BMR rear strut tower brace. I noticed that it definately makes the handling a little more predictable.

I can hep n1tr0 out here and say that the seats fit fine with the bar in, but it's REALLY tough to get the seatbelt installed, because the bar anchors to the same holes...

Anyways, you can leave the seats in just fine, but you may need to leave the belt out, but hey! you shouldn't be carrying more then one passenger anyways!

I have the front upper, the front lower, and the rear straight bar...

Liam's work is very good, affordable, reliable, and nifty. Good quality and good value.
