This thread is full of technical nonsense. 'Oer driving' a speaker WILL NOT cause poor sound quality. Poor sound quality is caused by an amplifier 'clipping' the signal as it is under powered for the amplification levels being requested of it.

It will be running standard suspension. One of the "side effects" of fitting 18 inch wheels and with lower profile tyres than stock is that it exaggerates the wheel arch gap (even though its the same as before).

Jonttt thanks for the detailed feedback. If this goes ahead, they want to make an affordable, high quality brace, and this is why I am helping them with a bit of market research into what affordable is. General consensus so far is between £100 and £150, which I think makes this feasable.
