These were purchased for a MK2.5 arctic. Delivery was superb - within 36 hours. The items are quite thick in nature, and have a self adhesive backing so in theory are easy to fit.
The adhesive on one of the surrounds I bought was not covered properly by the backing paper and therefore it had lost some of it's adhesive quality. I have therefore been forced to find alternative methods of sticking it down.
In addition, whereas one of the surrounds fitted perfectly in place, the other - with the non-sticky adhesive - would not lie flat. A considerable degree of manipulation was needed to get it to lie flat. (It still needs to be stuck down.) In fact it was not 'quite' the perfect fitting, even with manipulation.
On a positive, the satin finish is more subtle than the shiney finish of the alternative chrome version and this is pleasing. The thickness of the metal gives it a quality feel. On the whole however the problems outweighed the good points. Sorry.
