    I would say come to the meet on Sunday and have a look at mine, but you probably want to see them off the car hehe.

    So it is, I only had a quick glance at the post before Tipsy's and thought it was 20th of this month

    Thread closed then, on the off chance you haven't got them fitted yet, drop me a PM and will re-open it.
