Earthing Kits?

Hi guys...

I'm looking to buy an earthing kit for my 1.8 EX... Can anyone recommend a good place to buy these as I'm getting a little baffled into the fact that most seem to only state compatibility with the FN2? Would I be ok in using one for the FN2 as I would belive that the batteries and electrics would be the same throughout the petrol models?

Cheers

Most Kits are universal, however some are more suited to certain cars one for the FN2 would certainly fit the 1.8.

look here for more info,
