Recently fitted these to our Mk3.5 and posted review which has not appeared for some reason. Overall the product fits and functions well. Fitting is rather a fiddle especially the elongated backing component that inserts into the bonnet. Be careful not to loosen the set bolt too far as you will risk loosing it!!
Also the tiny pin/spring clips that retain the bracket balls in the lifter sockets are fiddly and mine needed de-burring in order to fully insert the pins.
Yes the plastic "bolts" that fix one end of the lower brackets to the side of the engine bay do not fill one with confidence but after a couple of weeks they seem to be holding up well.
Finally the instructions. Oh dear, what on earth can one say that is printable!? I contacted I.L. Motorsport who advised the translation from German had been done by a computer programme. They have now been re-written in plain English and will, I hope be of use to those who buy this product in future.
