Speedy, next day delivery (once in stock). As a complete novice it took me about an hour and a quarter to fit this. Fairly easy and the instructions are pretty detailed (with both words and pictures). The only assistance I needed from my husband was telling me where he kept the spanners! I had a few doubts how it would look as my car is silver - but it looks great. When fitting - the middle upper hole on my car had no screw to remove. And the other two seemed to screw out as normal screws (the instructions said they might need levering). Once I'd removed them, I cut off the bits at the back from the surrounding plugs (lugs? not sure of technical term?) so I could fit the bolt through the black plastic plugs. This seemed to work well.
On the lower black plastic plugs, I couldn't squeeze them out so just levered out with a screwdriver (protecting the paintwork with some cardboard)- this seemed to work out ok too. They didn't break (and you don't use them again anyway).
I followed the tip about using washing up liquid for lubrication and it slid into place without too much persuasion.
It looks really smart, so I'd recommend to anyone (even the novice like me).
