For the price it does it's job perfectly. I would be hard pressed to say everyone would know/feel the difference between firewall flex and just soft brakes. But it's something someone that does have the knowledge/feel would notice. If you track your car I recommend it to get you a uniform/linear pedal feel.

Me to. Hopefully I'll get it installed sometime over the next two weeks.

I've picked up some "Retaining Washers" or "Push Nut" from a local hardware store and I'm going to see if that will help with the mounting screws. By using these washers I can put the two M6 screws through the bracket and then press on the washer from the opposite side. They will keep the screws from falling out as I position the bracket. I'm going to just install the washers just far enougn onto the screws so that they will retain them to start with. once I have both screws started into the nuts within the inner fender, the washers will be pushed all of the way to the bracked as I tighten the screws down. Well.... that's my plan. I'll attach a photo of the type of washer I'm planning to use to help anyone who isn't sure of what I'm talking about.

I used a small amount of blue painters tape to hold the nut onto the driver.

Make sure it's assembled correctly before you install it. Mine was orientated backwards....which I didn't realize until AFTER I mounted it

Take before and after photos of your knuckles

I was about to do it last Saturday and I actually looked at the clearance on these things, holy crap, no way my fat mits are gonna fit in there ... theres really almost no room to even get the bracket in there let alone tools, fingers and the screws...i'll try again in the coming weeks when I have more time
