    Has anyone got one of these or know someone who does??

    They seem too cheap to be any good?? Is that just me looking at the negative side of things rather than thinking "wow what a bargain?!"

    fekkin hell just searched and i am amazed how cheap they are so probably sh%te.
    a friend has one very similar with no markings on it,i'll ask him what make it is.
    the one he has is a very tight fit on the underside of his bonnet.

    spend that rebate when it arrives and get one of these-

    as it says ultralight and weighs just over 2lbs
    i noticed a difference in handling on fast corners,car seems to steer more responsive and precise just before the back wheels loose traction.

    After upgrading my suspension I was getting a bit of understeer. I fitted a cheap strut brace (about £50 from mstyle) and it seems to have solved my prolem. Not been on track to really test it but has much more front end grip around tight corners and roundabouts. So excellent mod for the money in my opinion.

    cheers for the info Mortey, I think the strut braces m style sell are the FK ones I started the thread about..

    I think i'm going to get one aswell.. I'm not spending £200-300 on something that I don't really want, I don't use the car on track so would rather spend my money on other things..
