Dinan Strut Brace

Hi guys,

I have a Dinan strut bar in my possession. It has numbers D1820030-L and D1820030-R on it. I contacted Dinan and they told me the bar is for a Mini, but that's all he had in the database, no model, no year... Do you guys recognize the brace? Can anyone get the dimensions between the two towers/bolt holes?

If we determine that this IS for a MINI, the bar is for sale

Thanks!

All I can tell you is the hole pattern isnt right for a GEN2 MINI (post 2007) how its assembled there, A GEN2 MINI needs the 2 holes outermost on the rings which is opposite to how you show here.
Now whether you can swop the ends over side to side to correct this I dont know but it doesnt look like it
Tower centres on a GEN2 are around 1150mm ish

A GEN1 MINI (pre 2007) will probably be different as its a slightly smaller body than the GEN2?

If DINAN cant tell you exactly what it supposed to fit and they made it I dont think I would want to risk buying it.

Ive never heard of the make before myself.
