I have just bought 2 x 25th Anniversary sills:

do you remove the current ones in the car or do they just stick over them?

Those Anni Sill's look SO cool esp if you have the pedals to go with em!!! Just a shame my Golf has two too many doors to fit em properly [:(!]

I've just fitted a set of these. Piece of the proverbial wee wee. You don't need to use a heat gun, just lift a corner of the original ones and it'll all come off in one strip, easy. You need to remove the plastic trim on the inside of the door sill. This just clips off, no tools needed. Then pull the door seal up and give the whole area a good clean. Pull out the small plastic 'bung' on the outer edge of the sill with a pair of long nose pliers. The new sills are sided so make sure you get the right one! Pull half the backing off the new sill and simply place it where the old one was, it's a perfect fit too. Then remove the rest of the backing and smooth it all down, getting any air bubbles out as you go. Refit everything and you're done. Took me about 30min start to finish just take your time or it'll look poo. Looks the dogs too.

Cheers, Jim

Are they made of a soft material (one that can be trimmed for use on a 5dr)?

Yes mate, they're a sticker sort of affair rather than a solid item. You could cut it easily with scissors.

Remove the current ones first, you'll need a heat gun

You dont need a heat gun, just get your nail under the edge & its piece of cake, it'l just peal off.

Replaced mine friday night with some Stainless TDI babies[:)]
