I would purchase one for the 9-3ss if they were made.

The Vauxhall one I ordered from overseas does not fit.

I would take a front and rear strut tower bar for the 9-3ss, and Nick, secretly I know you want to make these for your 9-3ss too.

Kinda close, the drill holes were not quite an exact match (off by 3/4 of an inch but the diameter/spacing of the holes seemed right) and it appeared that the coolant reservoir and brake fluid reservoir going to close of a fit and hood clearance might have come into play.

However, I ordered this from some company in Europe and the postage was from Singapore so I am not positive that I got what I paid for, it has no markings, logos or writing of any kind on it.

I am pretty sure I did not even get a Vauxhall/Opel part.

A friend of mines husband who is a machinist is taking a look at it for a possible retro fit.

Great news that this bit will be available again. I installed mine before my 6 point (give me a break, it was winter and bloody cold!) and it made a huge difference in handling, road feel and minimizing torque steer. I was almost disappointed when I installed the 6 point....based on all the reviews I read on it I expected big changes....not so, since the upper brace took control of a good share of the uglies. Looks oh so aweet too!!!!
