Fitted mine too. I can feel the gearbox gates far more clearly than before. It's also improved the selection of reverse :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Very easy fit.

I guess I could let them go for £13 posted. I think that's half what BRD charges. Not like I mean to undercut him, but I'll only be replacing them if I buy a new red set from him, so I guess that balances it out.

Oh now you sell your blue ones at a discounted price after I've already bought mine and fitted then :angry-nono: :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead: :laughing-rollingyellow: :laughing-rollingyellow: :laughing-rollingyellow:

As far as I know the arb bush's are the same. But I would need some to confirm if the auto use the same mounts as the manual

I'll have to get back to you on a date as I haven't ordered a replacement set from BRD yet. Hopefully, this will be in a couple of weeks, then I'll need to fit them. I'll be in touch.

Can you price me up for a set of front and rear ARB bushes, in red. Did you ever price up a set for the gear shift mount? Might be interested.

I juust thought of a new product for you; jack discs / pinch weld adapters to add additional support to the Coupe's mounting points. The jack mounts along the side of the coupe aren't the best, as they are designed for the jack that comes with the car. These would come in handy for those working on typical workshop lifts as they provide a more secure mount.

These come up from the USA as a purchase. They are made of polyurethane.

Yes I've seen them on eBay and for the price it's not worth me making them. But they are very good I use them on my own jacks
