    I fitted one of these to my last car, perfect fit over those omp things that hold the bonnet up.

    Ideally the TQS's have them as standard, so one less extra to buy,lol

    Mines pretty snug against the bonnet but doesnt push it up and hasnt damaged it so its fine. Adds to the bling!

    the TQS has the plates welded onto the strut tops and then uses that bar.

    To make it fit a normal car you need the A6 strut plates and the bar itself. But because it's from an A6 it needs a few tweaks
