Looks like a hydrolastic competition spec bumpstop. Had this on my mk2 cooper years ago. It's a progressive stop, the car rests on it constantly and helps stop pitching backwards and forwards under...

Ad says 1.4 only. I guess it must for the 1.8 VVC pulleys too? Only asking as as I need to get one (or do people use 2 so you can lock both ends?)
