    The passenger side one doesn't line up properly. There's a number of things you can do to make it fit though from bending the clip on the repeater a bit to grinding the hole out at the front by 10mm, or you can stick them on wonky and put up with it.

    I went for the bent clip approach which required a touch of loctite.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
