    A couple of owners on another forum carried that mod out some time ago but it did not seem to catch on. Personally I don't see the point as the bonnet is not heavy or difficult to raise/lower so the money could be spent elsewhere. After fitting you may need to trim the rubber support blocks a little to clear the struts. I cannot remember if the parts came from superskoda or skodadop. I assume you sell them as well.

    My last 3 cars have had them as standard fit, and I have to admit the manual prop on Mrs B's Skoda is a pain in comparison.

    (the 3 wheeler's engine is mounted outboard up front, so no bonnet to lift)
    Just my opinion, do not shoot me if it differs from yours!

    I have it for Fabia, so your Mrs can feel something new from it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Installation...e=STRK:MESE:IT
    It is first version producer sells for many years, now you can try also new version with two gas struts. Not available on ebay yet, but available here http://upory.ru/shop/145/desc/fabia-roomster_2. Ask me for price, if you need it.
