No such thing as best imo. Just stick with a good one
E.g. Millers, royal purple, silver line synonic, or torrco etc....

Hi Don that looks like them. My handbrake section is pre facelift. So there is a bolt each side of the handbrake trim, down beside the front seat rails and a bolt in one of the cubby holes. I am sure they would fit thanks!


Thanks
