Hi
Look on ebay
there always a bargain on there
people tend to remove struts prior to selling their car
i bought a strong strut, nice bit of engineering

There is one on Ebay from 'Chromiumtec' that looks OK. Anyone any experience of this?
I have the chromiuntec one. It's great, took it off last week when I was looking at my spark plugs and took it for a drive without it. Didn't realise how much of a difference it made the zed was understeering and oversteering quite a lot. It's a massive improvement, well worth the investment.

I had the Chromiumtech brace too, did make a difference to the handling. Found the front end was a little more rigid through corners and inspired a bit more confidence.

Sold it to another member a while ago as it was a pain with my insurers. Don't forget it's a mod, so will most likely need declaring to your insurer ;)

I have the strong strut. They do command a premium but look well made and certainly do the job :)

I'm afraid it was already on the car when I bought it so I don't know, imo it is known as the best brace for the z3m's so if the price doesn't phase you then do it
