    Is there anything i need to look out for such as different linghts and fittings or will this just replace the standard one i already have without and modifications?
    I have been told that lengths could be an issue but i am not sure.

    hi, i manages to fit mine ok, the grub screws on the gaiter end are a bit of a pain, ended up rounding mine off and re tapping the holes with bigger grub screws, found that i had to wrap the original handle with sticky foam tape (poundland) to stop vibration, mine fits well though and i'm dead happy with it, took a bit of fiddling to make sure it clicked properly, could just be my bodging ability at fault though, lol!! but i'd do it again so, i think you should go for it!! just remember to take off the rubber handle thats already there!! length is about spot on!!
    This car is fitted with a red top
    But it goes down when the sun shines
