Mazdaspeed 4pt. roll bar in stainless steel

It looks good, the quality and finish are top notch, it's easy to install, hope it works. Took 2.5 hours to install. Shouldn't take more than an hour to remove leaving only cut plastic panels and carpet as damage.

The roll bar fit perfectly upon installation with nary any modifications aside from a few cuts on the plastic interior trim on top of the seatbelt towers, also the sleeve washer inside the seatbelt mounts require grinding by a few millimeters to allow the bolt to reach the nut at the bottom. Supplied hardware was complete and well thought out, i.e., washers supplied were of varying thickness for the different bolt locations. The mounting uses holes existing on the car. The hardtop still fits with the roll bar installed. The top of the inner frame of the hardtop rear window just misses the top of the roll bar by just a few centimeters. Couldn't even fit my little pinky finger in between the hardtop and the top of the bar.

Under 30 minutes to remove completely

Mazdaspeed 4-point rollbar

Mazdaspeed Phils. was not able to install it due to bad fit and wrong hardware supplied. Tried all 4 they had in stock, but they were all the same.

Wasted 20 hours and still wasn't able to install it. Still awaiting Mazdaspeed Japan's respose to the mechanic's technical report. Too bad, the bars looked great! I won't quit 'til it's mounted.
Difficult to remove without leaving damage
