Adam

Get the Jaguar part numbers from the official spares catalogue and quote them to SNG. They have thousands of parts they do not bother listing - you will be amazed. If they are not available them give Richard Smith a call at RM&J Smith to get originals, contact details in the Recommended Specialists thread.

Hello again,
sorry, just realized you were looking for the brackets, not the sun visors itself........ :oops:
But anyway, someone might be interested in Aldridges?s actual quality and how well they fit.

Hi to everybody,
after some delay Aldridge delivered the two new sunvisors. They look good, have the same shape, but are in a different colour than my headliner. I stated fawn, as the correct colour, but what I received is darker, more beige. Not a real problem for me, but it?s not a perfect match, at least colourwise.
Tomorrow I?ll put them in the car, then I know how well they really fit.
Have a nice day

Hello,
now I put them in the car, and they fitted quite well. As already said, the shape is the same, the colour does not exactely match my headliner, but I can live with that.
Good value for the money.
Kind regards
