I fitted this last week and after reading the other reviews though it would be a 10 min job, i was so wrong!
There were existing screws in were there were supposed to be bolts and the screws looked like they had been in place since the car was made in 1991!
I had to drill the old screws out and i put the new grille in place with nice new bolts.
The HUGE critisism i have with this product is that it has cut-outs on either side and looks silly! There is no reason for these cut-outs as they dont serve any purpose. Why is the grille made this way?
I could have made one myself which would have looked far better and probably for half the price.
Editors Note: Sorry to hear of your disappointment with this product, however please be aware that the \"silly\" cut outs either side are there to allow the grille to fit around the two tie down hooks that were fitted to every Mk1, Mk2 & 2.5 model from 1989>2005. Your car has had the two hooks removed. Also all vehicles had 2 x 10mm bolts that are used to hold the grille firmly in place, if your vehicle has screws then they have been fitted since the car left the factory.
Had your car been in standard trim then it would have fitted perfectly and the purpose of the cut-outs would have been obvious.
