Was thinking about a set for my TME but would like to know what the pressure is like on them when you open & close the bonnet.

I have the carbon goodies ones and they work perfectly; easy to raise and close the bonnet, pressure is spot on!

Another alternative are the Colt Speed ones:

See if we can get a Group Buy set up with either company.

I have put a post up in the Group Buy Section.

Will PM you the link I used.

Yeah a straight fit.


I find them great. The clip on my bonnet pin broke and it was rattling around. Also the 2 struts are lighter than the 1 pin!

Call me childish but I love the bonnet slowing lifting by itself

Good news Rick.

Hopefully there will be some good interest in a possible Group Buy for the dampers.
