Have used Superpro in the past with good results. Much more compliant than Polys, but just a little firmer than standard Thumbs Up

I've fitted various types of bushes over the years, standard, powerflex, superpro, proflex (At work i might add)

I've found the powerflex do stiffen it up, to me not overly stiff/harsh but they are the only ones that last IMO. Avoid the proflex at all costs, cheap crap.

With powerflex it's important they are greased during fitting otherwise they will creak like Censored Laughing

United Kingdom 2005 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Java Black

Just had poly Powerflex fitted to lower front arms. Yes they maybe a little stiffer than stock but happy really happy with them. Bit of a saga, first attempt at fitting by the indy they messed up and ripped the bush. Only noticed couple of weeks after getting the car back, anyhow spoke to James at powerflex who confirmed with their R&D department it was poor fitment and not a product failure.

Contacted James (powerflex sales director) offered to post out a replacement bushing FOC, It was not my intent or request to get a freebie as this was clearly failure of the indy. The service and advice I got from Powerflex was rocking 10/10 Thumbs Up As bushes wear I will now be replacing with Powerflex.

My reason for going poly was my last set of rubbers on the arms only lasted 18Months, and as disco mikey suggested this is not the norm of life and probably badly fitted. Anyhow not taking the chance and went poly.

I don't want to unfairly endorse one over the other, but from the service I received I would say they would stand by their product guarantee promise.

No bangs, no squeaks. Very Happy

Crotch vent!


Started to do a proper clean of the interior for The Old Man today, as he's not too well at the moment, and hasn't been keeping up to it like he normally does.
Anyway, found this aperture in the panel under the steering column, and by what I've seen it's a crotch vent and should have a pair of flaps attached.
Question is... Can these pieces be purchased separately, without buying the entire panel? Daily... Audi TT 240 qS, tasteful mods.

I fitted poly bush in the front and back of the lower front arms, Car drive great, a little bit firmer but that's ok. I need to do the arb's so thinking of putting poly bush in there too.
