i have a mk3 gsi 1992 and i've recently purchased a omp strut brace for it however the strut brace is 1 inch too long, i had a guy come look today and he thinks maybe the strut brace is wrong as it's too far for the struts to be out usually it a couple of mm. could anyone please measure the distance between their struts and let me know the distance so i can compare it to mine, thinking i might have to get a new shell

errr very unlikely your struts are wrong as that just isn't possible, does it look like this?

I'm wondering if its for a GTE? - other countrys refer to the GSI as a Opel GTE for example?

I bought one for my brothers xe and found that it was too small as above... was bought off e-bay from a Germany comp so thought about the GTE being smaller? Does anybody know if this is the case?

Had my brothers ali-welded so fitted the GTE brace in the end but looked a mess to be honest
