Ok, this is a bit of a mixed review. Firstly the good news, can’t fault MX5Parts on their service (except cost of delivery is a bit high when you are only ordering a few bits). The parts arrived after only 24 hrs from ordering so top marks here.
The grille for my MK 2.5 (without cut-outs) is not so good, all though easy to install, (once you’ve got the tie downs out of the way), the fit is a bit suspect. The bolts that retain it only just catch the edge of the grille slot and the gap around the profile is nowhere near even. When finally clamped in position the grille tends to distort a lot, which spoils the overall effect. The saving grace for the grille is that from the distance when you can actually see it, the above problems are not that noticeable.
Although I think it would be worth spending a bit of time to make some better fixing clips and even the gap out.
