4 x billet aluminium vent rings that are CNC machined

Wanted these as I have enough bright chrome in my car, these are classic roadster style rings (think Audi TT) with dimples around the edges

Easy to fit and remove and really set off my interior. Take a look at my site: www.mx5-zone.com/mark.html The suppliers site: http://www.mgcars.org.uk/satur/mx5/fx01.html Should work out to less than $50 shipped to the US

Aluminum rings that are attached on top of the exsiting vent rings in your car via epoxy or silicone. Comes in polished aluminum, red, and blue.

Recevied from M-Road within a week of ordering. I bought a set in blue to match my 10AE's interior- they were a bit expensive but not too bad for the desired effect('fixing' the stock interior, even on a 10AE). They are simply glued on using silicone or epoxy, I chose normal black silicone adhesive used for gaskets and it worked fine, although I put a thin layer all around as opposed to the instructions suggested '5 spots.' Worked fine for me so far -) When they arrived, I noticed that they aren't an exact match for the 10AE blue(thought I'd seen something on the site mentioning they were a close match), and they aren't anodized either- it appears they are actually the same as the polished ones, but have a plasticized coating of some sort on top of them -( This was a bit surprising/disappointing for the $.

They DO look very nice, and would probably recommend the polished ones without any reservation, but I'm not sure how long the coating on the blue ones will last. Definitely wish they were truly anodized instead, especially for the money.

These are aluminum rings that are glued to the existing plastic rings around each air vent. They are available in polished, satin, or anodized colors.

I got these rings in blue to match my 10AE's interior. The blue isn't an exact match but it's close enough. They are easy to install with a few dabs of "GOOP" or silicone adhesive and can probaly be removed without knowing anything was on there.

I think they really completes the look of the interior. There is not much blue up on the dash in the 10AE and these are a perfect way to add a little more blue to the car. I got them on sale for $28 + shipping and highly recommend them!

Aluminum rings that fit around the eyeball vents. Available in polished, satin and a variety of other colors. This review concerns the Satin finish.

They look great and fit perfectly in the space around the eyeball vents. My rings were the satin finish and I was very happy that they matched my 'spun' Voodoo Knob/brake handle and MSSS face plate perfectly. Concur with the other reviewer, installation took 5 minutes and 5 drops of silicon glue for each ring.

M-Roadster was very responsive and helpful (especially when I asked about the match with my other 'satin' finish interior items). My order arrived within three days of calling. I also agree the price was a little steep, but worth it to me... They look especially good on 1993 LE!

Polished silver vent rings. Nothing more, nothing less.

Bought them from Percy at M-Roadster along with a RAS Style Bar and a Voodoo knob. Received the rings and the knob in a few days (the style bar was on backorder), and recommend M-Roadster wholeheartedly.

Installation couldn't get any easier. Clean the vent area with rubbing alcohol, place a few drops of silicone glue on the ring, press, twist, and hold for a minute or so. Then repeat 3 more times. Works like a charm.

Thought the price was a little steep ($37) since the rings are polished aluminum as opposed to chrome. Nevertheless, once installed they match up well with other chrome items I have installed. Really add to the retro look, so if that's what you are going for you can't go wrong with these.
