    The lock carrier is different & more than likely fixing/locators are also different, so my advice is buy the correct version for your car, its a risk not worth taking unless its free & can be test fitted without to much hassle.

    Yes thanks for educating me there. When you said "This is site is so clique I just want to help people" it implied that (a) it was clique in a negative way and (b) suggested it was hard to get involved.

    Neither of which are true of this site unless you alienate yourself by posting screenshots of dictionaries as a method of informing people. Then I could imagine it does look clique.

    Or maybe i'm misunderstanding your tone entierly.

    Ha ha what's up with you? Not at all was having a giggle and the site was posted to genuinely help people looking for parts who don't have access to TPS.. Think you have misunderstood completely bruv!! ;-)

    Are you affiliated with the site in someway as that's a very defensive tone you seem to taking, the above post from you is exactly what will make the site seem 'clique'!

    Don't take life so seriously :)
