Wave strut brace or not

Hi everyone,
I am thinking of fitting an front upper strut brace to my Alfa 156, just wondering if anyone out there has done this modification, and their thoughts. Are they a waste of money or is there a noticeable difference in handing? Please any feedback would be appriated.

It isn't a particularly great value for money mod, but one many people have done predominantly for engine bling. I found it improved turn in a fraction, but there are a number of other mods that have no made the car handle fantastically. It is meant to improve rigidity but the issue is you're installing it where the car is most rigid anyway.

Go for it, its a great first handling mod and looks awesome
