The weakest points of the Corsa-B and Tigra-A are the connection points between the front crossmember and the left and right chassis legs. Mathijssen Technics developed a special kit in order to eliminate these weak spots
The two front tiebar brackets are mounted at this weak point. These tiebar brackets transmit high forces into the chassis during braking and accelerating, especially when a more powerful engine and bigger brakes are fitted to the car.
The Mathijssen Technics strengthening kit has been developed to strengthen the bodywork at these critical points. The kit consists of 6 strengthening plates, laser-cut from 5mm thick steel ready to be welded into place. A good fitting guide is included.
Choose the bodywork type of your Corsa-B to order the strenghtening kit you need. When you have a Tigra-A, just choose Tigra-A
In the next lines you can read everything you need to know of the difference between the 2 bodywork versions:
Opel/Vauxhall have developed and produced 2 different bodywork versions of the Corsa-B.
This is only recognizable under the bonnet.
The engine and gearbox supports are different. This has an influence on the choose of engine support kit needed due to the difference in bodywork versions.
We sell engine support kits for both bodywork versions. It is very important that you order and receive the right engine support kit.
You can see the difference between both body versions in the photos.
Open your bonnet and look at the engine support on your right hand side. (stand in front of the car, nose pointing towards the engine it's the support on your left hand side.)
If your support looks like the one on this picture, then you have got bodywork version 1.
If your support looks like the one on this picture, then you have got bodywork version 2.
It's quite simple. If still in doubt, just send us an e-mail. We can tell by the type of engine and the accessories fitted which bodywork version you have.
