Not sure with the GTT but the Forge strut brace will clear and they are very similar in design

There were problems with the early GTT braces denting the under side of the bonnet just a warning I think they got it sorted on the later ones

Aps have the forge ones on their site. Think they are £250ish
To be honest I like the Forge one better not as big and bulky as the GTT

I thought so as well but when I was looking the other day came across it on his site . He may or may not have one but would have thought that it would have been removed if he hasn't.

Yep, you're right YELLOW, on the later ones they lowered the corner to clear the bonnet. Also, when I went to buy one of these, GTT said they didn't have any more. Then they searched and found the parts for one more and had it welded for me. They may have made more since then but it didn't seem as if he was continuing them. I hope they have another or you find one Damien. Good luck!

You're welcome Damien! I'm glad Roland has some more. I think it's a great brace and I like it best from all I've seen . . . and I like the fact it's a bit sizable, especially with that polished aluminum (but you know my preference for bling!). Regarding the bonnet denting saga, that first pic shows how Roland corrected the issue. It was that passenger side (YOUR passenger side, not mine) bump out to go around the rigid wiring harness (I think that's what it is) that was the culprit . . . as you can see, he tapered it down on an angle.
