Thanks Daniel
So I guess the best is to drop one of the collinear variables.?

please note that mean centring does nothing to solve the underlying
problem of collinarity (if there is something like that)., see e.g.
Echambadi and Hess (2007) or Shieh, G. (2011).

However, in another post
( Maarten
Buis pointed out that in the special case, where a variable is
interacted with itself, to model non-linearities, centering can help.

Collinearity Problems in Moderated Multiple Regression Models.
