How do they actually fit to the bumper? Do you have to drill holes in the bumper?

Hey James. The vertical bits just clamp on. You'd need to drill for corner bars. As simple as that sounds, mine are being a complete pain to fit!

Thanks James, might pick up some then and I wasn't going to bother with the corner bars :)

I picked some up from Wood and Pickett at MITP, less corner bars. Your fitting might go a lot smoother, my MPi spotlamps and the foglight are causing the issue! The one I did manage to fit did look good!

Minispares sell some Overrides especially designed for the MPi with spotlights, meant to fit better then the standard ones.

I think the vertical bit is still the same on them, it's just the corner bars that are shorter, moving the overrider outward and clear of the spot. If I move mine over, the foul on the front panel. Frustrating!
