If you are considering it... don’t hesitate. They are fantastic and really finish your dash off nicely.
As stated in previous reviews the dials could be a little larger and the centre hole for the need to fit through need not be so large as it does leave a 1mm gap around the needle centres - it is easier if you take off the needles when fitting anyway. The only dial you need to be careful of is the fuel one as the needle needs to go on accurately (starting with a full tank of petrol will help align this one).
One thing I had not read any where was how delicate the dash cowl would be - years of sun makes it fairly brittle and so there was a real need for the superglue! It is a very difficult part to replace and despite the instructions stating to pull upwards and towards you caution needs to be observed.
One final note - if possible remove the steering wheel and allow at least an hour to complete the job - All in all it looks ACE!
