    Has anyone fitted bonnet gas struts?

    I have the spare wheel on my bonnet but it makes the bonnet on the old series 3 very hard to lift up and down, has anyone fitted any gas struts and what did they use or how did they fit them. I have tried some flea bay ones but they start to bend the wings Ideas would be appreciated.
