    Because it fits.

    How about the Raid HP. Good brace, well made and fits fairly easily.

    If the Lexmaul is the bright red one then no it doesn't fit. It's made for LHD Astras not RHD and it fouls the brake cylinder.

    yep I have nice bit of kit, but you will ahve to the fuse and relay box mod to make it fit. You will have to with any strut brace.
