👍🏻. At the Ebay price that's a huge saving so worth getting off there if you want it.

I contacted the Ebay seller who had put the wrong image on his advert. He has now changed it and it shows the correct, genuine guard with the Vauxhall tag with part number. I have ordered it and saved £128, you couldn't make it up. Not that £99 isn't far too much for what it is, but £227 is outrageous!
The car will come with mats and boot liner, so just the spare to sort out when my bank account recovers sufficiently.
Thanks everybody

No problem. I am glad you got it sorted. I am waiting until prices come down a bit more to get a Genuine Boot liner. The prices of parts have gone up since PSA took over Vauxhall.

I have to say that running her Mokka for nearly 5 years was relatively painless. Unlike my car, a Land Rover L320 :(

I had my Mokka X for 3 years with no troubles. Time for a change for you then? Maybe a Vauxhall ? 😂

Absolutely not, I would hate to have money in my bank account rather than my indie's pocket. Imagine not wondering what's going to go wrong next.

Thanks for the photo, just the job and that's what I've ordered. I did look at the Travall guard but it seemed over complicated.

Well, just picked the Grandland up from the dealers. As a billy bonus it's got the space saver and toolkit in the boot (salesperson must have thought I knew what I was talking about when I mistakenly said that I thought they came with one), so just about sorted. Wife seems to be pleased (she loves the colour, its the metallic red one)
The dog guard has arrived, but there are no instructions. I can see how it fits together but would be grateful if someone could point me in the direction of how if fits in the car. I'm struggling to find anything on the interweb.
