What ideas are you after? The VIN will determine what's fitted, there's online sites you could plug into with that like 7ZAP.

Yes in other markets there were variations of design. Over here all of ours have the 2 bolt design.


As far as the arms are concerned, AFAIK they're all the same and those little "brackets" may actually be a design improvement , will have no concern fitment wise



Handbrake cables,  wagon and hatch will be different.

But I have found

597602R500, 597702R500

and 59770-2L300, 59760-2L300

Contact a dealer to verify with the VIN what's fitted or try online.

I think either Korean factory or Czech is the other
