Hi just fitted one to mine, it needs to be the spring loaded type, if you open the bonnet and look at the underside you will see a circle cut out in the bonnet reinforcement just behind the latch, you need to find the centre of this and drill a pilot hole through, close the bonnet and open up the hole using increasing sized drill bits until the desired size is achieved (16mm for mine) B&Q sell large drill bits with a machined shank to fit a standard size drill chuck only takes about half an hour to do and looks fantastic :D

How legal are they? I noticed 'spring-loaded'... As I live in France (no, I'm not French!) I can see the French MOT people having a fit if I did fit one. Worth looking into though, because it looks dead good!

Fitted to a leaper to mine , has now been through UK MOT, not a mention, apart from that looks good!! ; its the spring loaded type, Stopped last summer by the gendarmes out side Sables D'Olonne spot check (I was daft enough to go out on a Sunday afternoon, if you live in France you know what I mean) who checked it moves when pushed (not fixed) sent on my way no problems.

Too true I know what you mean! Officious, surly lot at the best of times... Looks as though they know what to look for, though, which makes a pleasant change. Usually they just throw their weight around without having a clue whether there's any reason to or not!
