The quality appears good, and the instructions are also in English. The fitting of the bonnet mounts is straightforward, as is the fitting of the body bracket on the right hand side. I agree that the plastic fixers are not the strongest and used alternatives. On a 3.5 the left side body mount is not easy at all. The equivalent mounting point for the bolt is hidden behind the bracket that support the induction extension. Thus as well as following the instructions first remove the bracket - the body mounting fits below this, but the bracket will need a cutout in it at the front end to allow both to fit. Use the bolt from the right side to fit the body mount, rather than the supplied bolt. Loosely fit the bolts for the body mount and the bracket then tighten both - it is very fiddly. The bundle of cables needs both fixing points removing - but as it is quite rigid then it didn't require refitting. Finally a little silicone lubricant on the arms & it's a job well done. Looks good, very happy - don't know why Mazda don't fit them as standard!
