That's awesome good job @alfatwo

I wish we could have something made up for the 4200's I know there is the FD option but the price is difficult to digest (despite me being on the verge of ordering it twice).

After two years of searching I found a company up in Harrogate, Cornering Force Ltd

I sent them a pattern a few months ago, initially they were struggling with the tight bends, but now have it sorted

Its a replica larger diameter AC front bar in modern materials, the kit comprises of the bar, specially designed aluminium mounting's and all new fixings

£500+vat They need a minimum order of 5 to start, we might even get a discount for more

Matts sorting the finance if we can get enough orders, might even get the Vat back!

Is there anyone interested

Hopefully there will be others - from what I have been told by those have managed to locate and fit an AC ARB it transforms the handling

I am interested but the price seems a little steep? I mean I don't have problems with the ARB's as it stands and just removed and replaced both and treated and coated both of them. Does this price include one off costs for developing the design? So bigger numbers would reduce the cost? Can I be a maybe :) If you get 4 I might be talked into being number 5, however if you got 10 (or more)and the price dropped I might become a definite? I am in Aberdeen so fitting is a bit of a wasted offer for me.

£600 with VAT is a strong price for one bar.
Fully understand the reasons why though, small production run etc.
Makes the FD bars for the 42/GS realistically priced, but they have a larger market open to them.

Yea they had to do the R&D all over again

I thought £500 for a one off kit with custom made ali mounts wasn't too bad

This is the last chance saloon for the 3200 AC front bar conversion, I'm afraid

Its all up to you guys now

Can I just say that the AC ARB transformed the drive on my 3200. Well worth the mod....

I believe there is a guy in Australia doing them too?

Nothing to do with me and obviously don't want to tread on anyone's toes but thought it may be worth mentioning.

You would be correct, although they come with a hefty aus dollar price, haven't actually worked out what it equates to.

Hi Dave - have you thought about putting something onto Maseratitude site - depending on time to manufacture they could be delivered at German 20th celebrations by one of us?

Interesting that they are considering purpose made mounts - I thought the AC kept existing brackets and you just replaced bushes with those with larger diameter hole
