Yep. They look like cheap versions of ARB bars.

I'll stay with TJM barwork for now.

You would think that they would spell properly on the web page what an EXHAUASE?

I think they look alright...
I think ARB units are vastly overpriced...

does not look too bad with a bar on it. its just like the cruiser. ugly stock, add some accessories and it all changes. least we can mod it. so it cant be all that bad?

I think a bit more RD is needed on that one. Why in 2011 do they continue going old school metal when we should be looking at carbon fiber version that’s reinforced or bring some tech from f1 playground. I await TJM to show us how it will be done !

Carbon fibre bar. How much would that cost? You said how much....? :shock:

A carbon fibre bullbar, now that is an intersting idea.....

Perhaps carbon fibre might be to brittle around the chassis mounts for such an application but i'm no expert, it's certainly strong enough in an F1 car tub. It would definately help in the weight department but when the thing already weighs in at a huge 2800 odd Kg adding a steel bar probably doesen't matter so much

Generally speaking I'm more concerned about the mass and overall size of the new model, more so than the suspension and its appearance as most others seem to be taking issue to

I see hundreds of rice racers in civics with carbon bonnets (sad I know). I guess 2 or 3K for carbon bumper would be nice.
