    1.8 strut brace problems

    i ordered a strut brace from demon tweeks, it was a omp. when it came to fitting it wouldnt sit all the way across the engine bay without pushing the brake fluid container right back, so i got onto demon tweeks and they said it was a common problem with the astras, on some it fitted others it didn't. so i sent it back but now i've joined the group buy for the rear arb i want something on the front aswell, does anyone know of a strut brace that will fit?? i was looking at the one lmf sell but there is no way of knowing without a trial fit. mine is the z18xe engine if that helps.

    I used to have the raid one on my old 1.8, but fitted the much cheaper INXX (from ebay) one on my 2.2 coupe, was all of £38 delivered and works great although I hate all that polished gear so mines going to be black.
