Hi, purchased this for my mk 2 1998. Be aware that you may have drill new holes, in order to line up the black backing plate for these. This is not a problem. However, after fitting the back plate, and purchasing a new standard plate from Halfords, i could not get the registration plate to fit snuggly. Tryed lots if different ways to get in in but it appears the reg plate was slightly too big for the black backing plate. Having said this i managed to fit it, and it looks really good. The right hand side of the plate was slightly "bowed" which resulted in the top right hand clip of the Stainless Steel surround not being attached. This does not seem to be a problem, as the surround has another 5 clips and the plate has not moved atall since fitting. It also does not afftect the way the plate looks on the car. Overall happy with the purchase, but would have preferred a better fit.
