    INXX mk4 astra strut brace

    Has anyone fitted an INXX strut brace to a mk astra.

    Ive gone to fit it today, and it wont fit. i mean the fitment is fine, but the bonnet still hits it, and its not even just the fuse box that needs to be moved, its the relay and throttle body cover!

    There seems to be no way that it will fit.

    anyone else had this problem, i mean surely they wont make them so it cant fit. it say on the box its for 1.6 and 2.2 models??

    Don't I qualify as a "ppl" then

    I've no idea on that one mate, as it's a Raid one, not an INXX.

    IIRC Oddjob's got a Raid on his 1.8
