yeap, got them ages ago direct from lockwood - good service, arrived next day and they look good.

thumbs up all the way.

as said before, take the black plastic of first. Seeing as you've got a silver car it's the only way to go. Best to use a hair drier to soften the platic first and just pull gently.

p.s. like some of the specials on the dcp site - bmw side repeaters were 20.95 yours for 25.99 [:D]

Looks good, I'm persuaded! Mind you, stainless steel on silver might look invisible, I would really like to have something with a hint of blue...

Very nice grellow but would they not have looked even better if you had removed the black plastic beforehand?

I have emailed Lockwood asking if they do these as a 5dr set with GTI on them, Its a close call between those and the Anni ones.

I think the Oettinger one's would suit your car Gary although they are a little pricey.

There are very pricey, I have emailed RSD twice regarding them without reply!!

Gary, Wouldn't it peel the paint off by pulling the plasticy thing off?

Would a hair dryer get hot enough to unset the glue on it?

Also i thought the plastic was there for a reason, or just a simple kind of door sill cover to protect the paintwork?

The plastic is just glued on but the glue is lowish tack.

I used a hairdrier to make the plastic flexible ( 1 deg C when I did mine) and they literally peeled of with v.little glue left behind. Bit of road tar remover did the job.

The plastic is just there to protect the paint.

grellow, what about the hole with plastic grommit thing in each sill? did you take them out?

the sill plates don't interfere with these, I think they are drains so shouldn't be touched.
