    Vehicle : Vectra-C

    Trim : SRi XP2 Nav

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2008

    Default Weichers Strut Brace Fitted

    Wasn't sure if I should post this in the Styling section, as i'm not expecting to notice a difference in handling but it does look nice under the bonnet Maybe it will help at speed through the bends but its not necessarily to be noticed anyway.
    Anyway a big thanks to Scott(parsco) for sending it to me without delay.

    Fitting was fairly straight forward, once the rain had stopped. It had already got the mod for the bracket that gets in the way on the N/S strut...........


    Just needed a small cut out on the O/S strut as my car has a stud fixing near one of the mounting points......


    A bit of autosol to finish of and job done.........

    Hopefully, it would be hard to tell, but it does look good

    If its the bracket on the N/S you mean, its a bracket for the ABS system.

    apparently it doesnt make any difference because the struts are very close to the bulkhead, but it does look good and I would have one...
