Yes, both have the same engine I believe. 143 bhp (145 ps). You should have no problems. Well! Other than the pain in the **** that they are to fit thanks to the awkward position of the coil packs! :irked:

Yes, as per PM.

All 1.8 VVC's that are wasted spark twin coil down the back of the engine are the same.

About what it take me.

Having long arms and being able to reach around the engine to pass the lead through is a blessing.

Just do them from the coil end one at a time and you can do it all with feel from the top of the engine.

Nope, just MGF Mpi ones at a guess.

The box mine came in had the designation of MGF VVC on it and no other models.
