Hi Guys. New on here so please be gentle;)
Anyone know where to get the clips that hold down the plastic carbon effect trims at each side of the engine bay?
Thanks
Scott

You are lucky to have CF ones; they were very expensive from the factory.

Assume you are referring to the covers that lift off to gain access to the fuses and oil filler??? The fastening is tike a wing-nut?

If so, I believe they are not sold separately. Options would be used/damage covers or finding similar on ebay etc from a similar system used in other cars.

Ouch!! £48 for a set of plastic clips. Thanks guys. I’ll try searching the web for something similar. Maybe it’s time to invest in the 3D printer I’ve fancied.

Id say that they have been wrapped/dripped and not genuine CF.
As for the clips, i found them without the handle/twisty bit, but didnt find any with the top bit.

Yep they’re definitely plastic coated in carbon effect.

I’ve ordered 4 from the link from spkennyuk. If they fit and are similar to the originals I’ll order another 4 and replace them all to make them the same.
Will take photos and post late this week

Clips no use the bottom not wide enough to catch the panel.
Are these any better ?

If they are wide enough to catch the bottom of the panel you could possible graft the thumb twist off the other clips onto the top of these.

Same seller as before.
