I've just been on the phone to Steve @ SJ about ordering some parts for my series 1 and he mentioned the lower front suspension arm bush modification. The other phone at his end was ringing off the hook and I didn't really understand what he was telling me. So can anybody enlighten me please? It seems that the early S1s had an Opel bush (which looks different at each end) and this was superceded by a Lotus bush (which looks the same at both ends) so far, so good. Apparently, to change from the original to the new is a major drama which involves cutting/drilling/welding etc and runs to about

Is it enable S1 owners to move to Poly bushes?

There is a good reason to move to poly, as gien in great detail last year at the factory, all about the composition of a new rubber bush being different due to legal constraints, so the modern rubber ones aren't as good as the original rubber ones when they were new. So, move to Lotus poly to get original design handling etc etc.

Other than that, are the original unobtinable?
