For a rhd car which holes do I need on the left hand side? Two holes on the top left have grommets, so may have been used. Are any used for the wiring loom?

David, here are two shots of the cover on my lhd S3 Coupe, #5727.

The original plate was made from "mill board", same material as is fitted in the boot. On an S4 I rebuilt the original one was just screwd in. see pic below, sorry about the quality

cheers
Mark
