Default Stabilizer floor bar sold by a not so bright ebay seller

So i was looking for anti sway bars on ebay just for the hell of it and this is something i came up to.

ADJUSTABLE STABILIZER FLOOR BAR B MIATA RX7 PROTEGE RX8 : eBay Motors (item 320420538000 end time Feb-01-10 17:47:08 PST)



its a universal bar that goes between the front and rear seats on a 4 seat car.

I decided to email the seller with this question:
so where do you install this item on a miata? In front of the rear seats as well?

the response i got was (and this is a copy and paste from my email):
Thank you for your message. Yes it is install to the back of the seats.

What the **** would it do even if it would fit in any car? It follows the floor and over the trans tunnel. Anybody who buys that **** needs to be beaten to death with a nail studded 2x4.

It LOOKS like it does something. The appearance of performance is far more important that actual performance.

Also I'm sure the seats on a Miata can slide far enough forward to install this. You just have to drive with your chest against the steering wheel.

What's the spanner wrench for? HAHAHA, people like this should be banned from ebay for life...
Edit, looks like you tighten the tension of the bar with it... Still one of the dumbest ideas ever.

Oh I think these guys make a roll bar for a Miata too. It goes over the top of the roof.
