Will this sit further out towards the motor or towards the front of the car?
Water pump bolts look like they might be in the way! :(

f**k it, just bought the 24mm one.

Still very interested to hear if you can fit the 33mm one in an EA-ED with thermofans though.

I know they will fit in the V8 EB, cos I have one in my car.

Don't know about the i6 tho, as they are obviously a few pots longer.

well as they fit the V8 model, it means it can physically be mounted.. now can you afford an extra 9mm between the rad and your fan/belts/engine.
