So the whole package is about crisper handling and the strut tower brace is part of that.

Whether it actually makes any significant difference is an open debate.

Personally I like the idea of it, even if it is not significant, I figure why not? And it looks cool under the hood.
I have 18" wheels I think. I have the base model. So going with 19" rims will improve handling?
