    Or sit it in place, drill it then use the plastic rivet things with the middles that push into them, same as used on the older MK5 grills.

    Thats installation.
    Notes to take is make sure you leave a gap, or you will struggle open your bonnet fully.
    Also when putting in rivets/drill careful of your washer jets, dont burst pipe or crack the washers.
