    i'm suprise you got an OMP one to fit, they're made for LHD cars and usually dont fit. I wanted one for mine but it wouldn't fit, i love the red powder coated look - very nice mate.

    Now get some bits to compliment it, a red hose kit or somethin

    You know the one

    Enquire within

    Looks good

    Did you encounter any problems when fitting this to an H? And how does it attach to the inner wings?

    looks good,

    do all the H's have that underbonnet pattern? looks like the inside of an eggbox?

    I was wondering about this as I think the MK4 has great handling at the front as standard. How was the Mk5 before and after?
