not a rear one. wouldnt have boot space!
my current one i couldnt bend when i took it off. plus i was expecting not to be able to get it on again as the turrets got closer together but it was fine

i think i should have just got a vti and stripped it and put new front seats in and got boost vtec Y0!

lol, they are really flexi, i bent one by throwing a spanner at it in rage (it was lent in the corner of the room) so i then tried to use it as a lever bar and it just folded like origarmi without even putting effort into it lol

yea i do know their designed for compressive strength, but my new ones better lol

mine needs a clean bad, i need to get the orbital on the bonnet and roof lacquer fade sucks. teh worse thing i have is heat shield on my back box has lost a few spot welds and resonates at 3k. which means i either change up or keep the revs climbing to get past it :D:D.

i was thinking about strut braces and even new antiroll bars for mine but id ratehr lower it. wish i had money :(
