Hello Osten. Still don't have the info. I'll call son this week the dealer to get it. I'll let you know! I'll be in Malvern Friday October the 11th so if your car is there and I manage to identify it, I'll send you pictures!

Hello Glen. I created a post asking about them. And Reading the replies it looks like they don't work as good as the originals to get the bonnet in its right place. Many have the Bonnet moving back and forth with the vibrations when only retained by the vintage bonnet catches, leaving a gap. This is why I disregarded them...

I would say totally the opposite, so much easier to live with than the Dzus fixings. And from reading your thread most appear to agree. 1000 miles and no issues with them whatsoever, mine was one of the first fitted with them. There is very little movement of the cover. My dealer said they should have used these on the car as standard fitment. I would seriously consider them.

I'll be in Malvern at MMC October the 11th. Will check this out and maybe add them. The good thing is that you can add them afterwards.

Not really. They asume it Will be ready fully assembled within a week (it's also painted now) and then shipment to Spain, pass the Brexit new barriers (if any), do all paperwork here to get the license and plates… so one month from now mínimum.
