    So all good,howvere

    The kicker is they are different colours. The passengers clealry looks like it’s been shelf worn and was in a more bespoke bag. It’s silver

    The driver is utterly mint. It’s Matt light grey.

    Ok tip for others... no part of the grub screw needs to clear the outside edge of the cap. I have just had my biggest worry rethreading the first one I took all the way out. its needs to be damn staright to go back in.

    I have put the rubber washer on afterwards over the top. couldn't get it to sit right underneath and t now looks right.

    @Rik Perry any guidance on the rubber washer?

    Heres a gag... my passgner side pin hole is the perfect point for the ball bearings to pin out of.

    Dabik you may remember me banging on about about mine having different finishes as per yours so it's obviously a 'thing' Interestingly the early ones don't have the rubber O ring.

    Bummer on the position of the pin, turn iy upside down and slide it back in so the flat side is against the bearings?

    Received a second set today for a friend, brand new, not a scratch still in renault sport packaging from factory with original no frills RS label on the bubble packing. Grub screw not loctited at all! Seems like the cap which has an o'ring at the bottom to be either not loctited or very little glue applied compared to others without the o'ring. I suppose the seller got rid off the battered and scratched ones first. Expect for the latest orders to receive brand new untouched ones.

    I still did not check against original trophys but are the mounting holes exactly in the same location compared to the struts? Did any of you checked, I was wondering if camber was same as original.

    Very nice.

    Why not just leave them pinned for now. Factory setting is perfect, better leaving them sealed.
