I'm the guy that sold you (Furby156) the strut brace.
I am really sorry to hear you are having so much trouble with it and wanted to reiterate that it was a 100% genuine part supplied to me by Alfa UK.
Although I understand what you are saying, I dont get why your car would be so different to my 2.4 jtd SW, as it fitted to the studs on that like a dream.
I assume as your studs appear to be at an angle, then essentially they are not square in the barrel holes on the end of the brace, so the nuts wont go on as theres not enough clearance?
If this is the case then its very strange and I dont really have enough knowledge to give you a solution.Is it the same on all 4 studs?
Let me know
