    A few of us here have them on our cars. I wanted them mainly to stop rain water running off the roof of the car and in through an open window when I turned a corner. I like them.

    I bit the bullet and bought them. They arrived two days later and I fitted them last night. Although I have no idea where the little metal clips go. I have just pushed them in where i think would be best.

    Anyone know where they go?

    oh and I will get some pictures up soon

    each to there own..

    I have them on my A4 and I personally like them and they do have a practical side.
    ( especially when my son doesn't close the window properly )

    you get them on some cars and they look horrid but the audi ones dont seem to look to bad.
    I had them on a 406 I bought and they looked horrid. so did the rest of the car mind you but the wind deflectors didint help matters

    ( feck I just admitted I bought a 406!! )

    I had them on my corrado vr6 and was happy with them but wether I'd fit them on my S3 is another story, not too sure about them for S3
