Currently bought this (Feb 08). Reading instructions on this website appear to be out of date??
One the sidelight blanking circle, you still have the problem of a raised surface compare to OEM.
When you drill out the hole then make the notches cleanly, the raised surface WILL break your bulbs holder tabs! (MOST ANNOYED)
So therefore there appear to be a another step. You need to thin out the blanking surface to the OEM thickness. I have however broken my bulb holder tabs!
I would suggest that you
** Drill a small pilot hole dead centre
** Get a forstner bit to thin out the sidelight blanking plate.
** Then drill the hole to 13.5mm (I used a cone drill bit to go to 14mm)
** Then make the notches using a small square shape file in identical position to OEM.
On a secondary note, why don't MX5Parts request their manufacturer to make one to fit uk market??????
