Hi all,
Still in the middle of overhauling the suspension on my 145. My mate is doing the work and he was just looking at the ARB on the rear before starting work on that end of the car. He noticed the bar was red, which makes me think that the previous owner replaced the standard bar perhaps with Eibach, although there is nothing in the (comprehensive) paperwork to suggest that. Is the standard bar black?
Cheers.

On mine the standard one was black. I got a Fiat Coupe one which is marginally thicker and powder-coated it red.

Thanks Ganz. I've actually got the Fiat bars to put on mine, but will probably rethink that if I can confirm there are Eibachs on there.

Black were standard. Measure the thickness, this should tell you if it's been painted or upgraded.

Thanks guys. Yes - I'll have a look at how thick they are. Cheers.
