It may depend on the year. Its best to speak to Martin, he found the right size ARB bushes for me. Go for Superflex poly bushes if you can, they dont cost a lot more than the basic rubber ones, are stronger as well as far less of a struggle to fit.

Just a thought, check the actual diameter of the ARBs on yours too as its always possible a previous owner could have uprated them at some point as they are relatively easy to swap.

I have the full range of superflex bushes. Some 2.0 had 22mm but others were 24mm. Original rear ARB were 12mm but could possibly have been upgraded to a 14mm one from a 2,8i.
All I would need is the diameters of the bars I and I could supply the correct bushes.
