Bought this directly through them from their eBay store. As usual shipping from Malaysia is super fast and their customer service is much better than their USA representative. I will say this bar didn't come with instructions and should have because part of the rear suspension frame is going to drop when you do this. You will need:
17mm long neck socket
13mm long neck socket
12mm wrench or socket
Jack or support for the suspension.

The bar is just behind the rear wheels and my driveway is on an incline so all I had to do is back my vehicle up to the end of my garage. Otherwise you will need to jack the rear end up a little or use a lift. Start by placing your supports/jack under the rear bolt in the center rear of the vehicle (right by where your exhaust is you can see it in my pics). The two bolts on the ends are 17mm and the ones in the middle are 12mm. Remove all six screws and the two plates that they were holding. Save the long bolts to be reused.
Next take the bar and the two 13mm bolts that came with the bar and two washers. Bolt up the two sides with the 17mm long bolts but do not completely tighten. Attach two center 13mm bolts, then tighten everything up. Remove supports. Go drive

First Impressions: there is not much wiggle in the rear anymore. It was noticable instantly after pulling out of my garage. Definitely has a tighter turning radius as the doughnut on the side street confirmed. Follows the front end much easier now. I would not be surprised to see a little oversteer, which I prefer anyways. Tired
so just went around the block with it. Update in few days of driving.

So SamuelX sent me pics from their USA website and it appears they left the stock brace there. But on their eBay page its showing them removed. It looks like this can be installed either way, but leaving the middle bolt attached on each side will make it so you don't have to keep the suspension lifted when you do this. As mentioned would have been helpful if there were instructions, especially considering how they have two diff sets of install pics, but meh. Not going to take it out and reinstall again. I doubt the stock plates are really doing anything once the UR bar is there.
Also good to know they have that piece back on the website as a couple months ago it wasn't there anymore. Just heads ups it's $32 more on their website than eBay.

Could you update us on how it feels? Been contemplating this bar and other bracing if it makes a noticeable difference. I only have a RSB as of now.

The bracing makes a big difference and doesn't change the ride quality much. I added the bar to my existing rsb and center chassis brace, and am so far very very happy with the results. My goal was to dial out some of the understeer and improve handling, which I believe was a success. I only drove it a little Tuesday and had things in the trunk for a work seminar. Yesterday drove the Lexus. I'll get a little more seat time next few days and update then.

I've been very busy but really like the way my car is setup now. It turns in much sharper, front end goes where you point it much easier, and holds the line better. Still haven't had a chance to really drive it at the limit yet, but rear end just follows now and would not be surprised to see some oversteer now at the limit, which is exactly what I wanted. At the least, a tremendous amount of understeer has been dialed out. Body roll has been severely minimized. Very happy with the three bars, probably done with the suspension mods now. Update again after a month.

Honestly even just after my rsb and springs it kicked the back out a bit if I swing it. This bar should increase that so it’s my next mod.
Yes but there is a difference between oversteer at the limit and swinging the rear end out to force it. But I have read of others with springs and coilovers saying they get oversteer. In either case this will definitely help you get the rear end out easier.

Did you find something better than the UR bars? Or are you getting rid of your car? Thanks.
Car go bye bye😭 it was totaled while I was sitting in a driveway month and half ago. Already had two X Gen Accords didn't want another. Very upset considering I had just put the rear bar on couple weeks before and the Weathertech sun visors the day before. Car was basically done.
