    Ok, finally got the X-brace fitted on Monday morning without the use of the nut sert tool, using just an M8 allen bolt, M8 nut and washer to collapse the nutserts. Good news. The brace has transformed the handling AND feel of the car big time.

    I have taken it to windy roads and roundabouts where I know it used to roll quite a bit before and boy does it feel so much better now. Alot less roll and the general feel of the car itself is so good. I love the car even more now.

    I would recommend fitting the X-brace as a handling upgrade. It only cost £30 for the X-brace posted, and a couple of £'s for the nutserts and bolts. Took about 15 mins to fit. Hard part is trying to turn the nut up the bolt whilst laying down with your arms up in the air. Mucho arm ache apparently.
