Yep, I just bought a set the way you describe above (i.e. European Car/Ron's
Parts). They look and work great!! Yeah, they were recently priced in EC as
$29.95 for the set. A deal/steal, IMHO...
What's nice is that they COVER the 17mm bolts, not REPLACE them. No worry
about fitment problems etc...
And the key is small and fits on your keychain. No worry about losing it in
your car, or the thieves finding it....
Until I got these, I was paranoid as all h*ll about someone taking my new
Borbets. I'm glad they arrived rather quickly (i.e 5-10 days, I believe).
Resting easier now....
