    I'm fairly sure that the fit is the same, mine looks exactly like the civilian one In had on my last SIII. Best place ask would be Exmoor trim - could you let me know because I'm thinking about one too.

    Don't quote me, but the width difference is really because the LW doesn't have that 2" thick slab added along the sides when the Series II was launched.
