Deanno, afraid these are actually the price each, i.e. each latch is 13.55, I originally thought it was 13.55 a pair and rang them up to find out it was each latch, but you had to buy a minimum of 2. Stupid way of pricing them if you ask me as it causes all kinds of confusion. CBS still seems to be the cheapest place for these.

Ebay is cheaper:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IVA-Bonnet...item20c6da3c0b

15.30 + 2.50 postage = 17.80

where CBS is 19.20 inc VAT + 6 postage

Mine came from either KPD or KS can't remember and were cheaper than everywhere else at that point.

May I offer a little tip when installing these catches ...

If poss when positioning them & deciding where to drill the holes, if poss allow yourself some adjustment as even when using the enclosed fitting guide/measurements for drilling holes etc they DO stretch during use & its important to have these catches really taught to hold the bonnet in place snugly

I,ve heard of a few drivers losing their bonnets whilst driving ( not me tho) cos of LOOSE bonnet catches

HTH

cheers
andy

I would rather go for Aero catches but the price puts me off.
