Hi guys,

Thinking of ordering one of these today - did you have any issue with delivery? Does it come with all the bolts / washers necessary to fit?

Cheers, Cluffy

I haven't ordered a strut bar (yet) but i have ordered from Alfisti.net.

You have no worries, they are so fast to deliver they put many UK based companies to shame.

You can pretty much only pay by paypal though.

All bolts are supplied. Ten minute job to fit it :thumbs:

I concur, mine was delivered within a week. No problems at all :)

Just ordered a Wiechers one from Alfisti.net! I rang around to try and find a supplier for the Ultra-Racing brace I've seen but no-one in the UK has them it seems...
Hope to have a good customer service experience too as you guys seem to have done but so far they seem to be hot on the emails...

I have the Wiechers on my V6 spider. It's made a big difference with the handling and has helped with some scuttling that one gets with a Cabrio.

If I fit this strut bar to my TS GTV will I be able to close bonnet properly? I ve read on some forums that in some cases when used on a TS bonnet seems to catch on a bar a little bit? Any experience regarding this?

I had an aluminium Novitec strut brace on my old GTV V6TB but it looks like they don't do any now for the GTV :confused:
Will get a strut brace for my current GTV V6 but not sure which? I would prefer a straight one, not with a big kink in it like the Wiechers but if there is no other then that's the one I'll get.
Have you guys gone for steel or aluminium?

On their website you can select for Four cylinder or 6 cyclinder cars... I wonder if there are two bars and people have tried using the wrong type?

It does "catch" a tiny bit on the cover under the bonnet. Nothing serious though, and it doesn't interfere with the opening/closing of the bonnet :thumbs:
