BMR strut tower brace.

Hello,
I have been looking at strut tower bars, I know they are more for looks than anything, just trying to change up the engine bay a little. The description of the BMR bar says that some 05-06 cars may need to bend the clutch reservoir for it to fit. Has anyone had to do that?



I tried to google search it but really didn't find anything. And if anyone has pictures of their BMR bar installed post them up. I'm giving you a chance to show off your engine bay

I had to loosen the bolts for the clutch reservoir to give it some wiggle room until I got the strut brace installed and then I was able to bolt the reservoir back up. It's a tight fit.

Thanks Robo, I found the pic of you engine bay from your build thread and it looks like the bar sits right in front of the clutch reservoir.
