One set is fixed from under the skin and the other over the skin. So if you have a single skin carbon bonnet with no bracing across the front corners you can fit theFlush units with no outer lip, more stream lined in its fit but you get fixing screws protruding. or like most of us you would pick the flanged type so you dont have catch your hands on the screws as they are countersunk in to the flange. Also you do not have to be quite so accurate in the hole cutting as the flange covers any slight imperfections. I have the second option on my car look on members gallery R1 NISMO. Hope this is of help!

Is there any benefit having these on a stock bonnet ? (i.e. is the catch on the stock 32 bonnet good enough or is it worth having safety fasteners fitted ?)

Whens the last time your bonnet come loose and smashed into your windscreen on the road?

LOL ... well obviously never. But then, I'm thinking of having some fun at brunters and I've been told by one or two other 32 owners that it's a wise precaution to have bonnet pins / safety fasteners. Several have commented to me how the bonnet seems to try and lift at the front at higher speeds.

Atco knows what it's like to have his bonnet smash up against the screen ;) (but that's because he forgot to use his bonnet pins and relied on the standard bonnet catch).

Thank you for being my financial advisor though and trying to save me money.
