    Default Strut Brace for Vec C 2.0T facelift 08?????

    hiya, does anyone know if you can get front strut braces for my car?
    went away last week for short break down Wiltshire and to be fair the camber on the roads is quite bad. But I have never really drove the car long distance before and although she drove lovely I couldn't believe how much torque steer I got overtaking and crossing lane to lane on acceleration.
    She's riding on 18's and the boot did have some weight in it, but she was sitting level, tracking and wheel balancing is fine , but as you go to overtake and cross over the centre of the line it was quite aggressive (dry road too) and again when getting back to the right side of the road.
    Car's an 08 plate so I wouldn't of thought the front bushes were worn yet?
    had this on my RS2000 many years ago and a strut brace got rid of all the symptoms

    HELP !!!!!!! lol.
    Thanks guys

    p.s. got nearly 37 MPG average out of her, and had some fun at times too.

    Thats what I love about the turbo engine. Great performance and great fuel economy for a big lump. The best I've had from my Siggy T was 45mpg on a 50 mile run. but normally around the late 30's. Around town I'm getting 28mpg at present whcih is great for me.
