Costs very little to buy... £15 from flat4online

Easy to make yourself with washer/spacers and longer bolts

Yes it does work thats why the 2001 MY on have them tilted up... cooler air equals better burn equals more torque for free .... like the TESCO guru said... every little helps

Takes about 20 Mins to fit, you need a 12 mm wrench and cross head screwdriver
