Is it A-Series only? I think it should be...
So when some joey comes on here about how his 16v turbo vauxhall is great compared to ours, he can be given the 'bird'...

I'll measure mine this evening.

I brought one for the BOC when it was my daily drive as the speed bumps at work are bloody aggressive and they'd worn down part of my gearbox housing.

i have a sump guard as i kind of need it....
dimensions same as above but mine extends quite far back

only bit of advise i can give... fit an oil temp gauge and seriously think about an oil cooler,
my mini was running 120-135degC @55mph without a cooler and now its in check

also mine is 10mm thick and i can jack from it ( after jacking it up to get a trolley jack under it *happy* )
