Great service, packaging and speedy dispatch/delivery, as usual from MX5parts.
The product itself looks great when fitted, and I've found that putting the rubber seal that goes around it in a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes before fitting it does wonders for the ease of getting it to fit snuggly around the corners of the plinth.
Only gripe, as others have mentioned, is that the plinth itself if very flimsy and care is required when fitting it to prevent damage. The plugs included are indeed useless so you'll need to head to the hardware store or sift through your containers of spare nuts and bolts to find something more robust.
This is my second one - the first was cracked by someone very lightly backing into my bumper. Fortunately they paid for the new one but it won't be long before this one gets broken too I expect. MX5parts - please, please, please speak to whoever supplies this part and suggest they make it just a little stronger - it surely wouldn't take much to make the quality of this part match it's purpose. Or drop the price and sell this as a disposable item...
