      That I do not know... What did you come up with? It sits close to the hood and seems to provide a good bit of clearance.

      ABD link says it is for Rocco 8V so I am going to assume it wouldn't work for a Rabbit 16V

      ABD's site is crap anyway so I wouldnt assume anything please.

      I called ABD and they said it is compatible with certain 16V applications but "modifications" may be needed.

      So I would stick with no, it doesnt directly fit but it will if you want it to

      my question is similar about fitment, but is with regards to clearance on a 1.9TD
      my neuspeed bar rubs on the turbo inlet tube

      do you have any photos of this bar installed on the car, or can you drop it on a MK1 and take a snap? if it has the right clearance, I'm very interested.
