Hi Len,
This is how my S4 (narrow rad) brackets are fitted .. larger, offset angle bracket goes at the top, bolted to the bonnet hinge platform stay and the smaller, plain right angle bracket goes at the bottom, bolted directly to the fibreglass. The upper set of holes on the radiator side plates are used so the radiator is mounted as low as possible in the car.
