    Front Strut Brace

    Hi guys after some looking around i decided to go for this strut brace as it seemed cheap n simple, only mod i had to do was cut the top of the small fuse box but if you temp fit the strut and you can see were you need to cut

    This is the bar i went for on ebay "VAUXHALL ASTRA G MK4 STRUT TOWER STRESS BRACE BAR"

    cool paul, cheers for the pm as well!

    I just noticed you have a different intake pipe than standard. do you know off the topof your head whether the standard pipe work sticks out futher to the windscreen than your pipe work?

    I might have to buy one now!!

    noticed any handlind difference?
