    I think you will find that they were not factory fitted as they can twist the all alloy facelift bonnet. Doesn't mean they won't be ok though.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    I certainly wouldn't risk it, the problem is that the pressure in the struts end up making them into a "pivot" and when you grab the bonnet and pull it down, it may bend the bonnet

    If it won't get opened much, why bother?
