Very good read once again, my engine is black as said but im pretty sure i have a mk3 boot lid on mine as the boot popper wiring is a connecting point at the bottom which reminds there is one more thing you can add if you wish, the mk3 had one strong boot strut whereas the mk3.5 had 2 weaker ones.

rob/des/mole think it must be the last of the mk3.5s that have a black engine bay, come to think of things i think i read it was a cost cutting method! all (3) of my si's have had a black engine bay.

as said all some cars have a mix of bits!

I would add the inner plate for the mirrors is swappable for the full effect.

I'd also remove the suggestion to use a shim on the bottom of the shock. Potentially dangerous due to four wearable surfaces instead of two which means more possible movement.

I wouldn't agree, if all is tight as a tiger then it will be fine.

I run that set up too on mine.

You just have to make sure its tight, no movement. And all is fine.
