Tigger, Eeyore & Roo - I did get all 3 braces, I can't tell just how much difference it has made. The car feels so solid now, and I'm no longer worried about bumps in the road. It takes corners magnificently. You could tell the difference from the moment I started driving after Roland did his magic.
I can't recommend strut braces enough, especially on the convertible, as I understand handling is somewhat compromised compared to the hatch.
Hi all, just to let you know streeters has informed me that my car is in this month's Modern MINI! Looking forward to getting it (when I can find someone that sells it in the Hatfield/St Albans area grrrr)
