    anyone ever bought a set of the door blades off ebay,i cant seem to find any sets of the s line or the s4 which i really want but like hens teeth anywhere at a reasonable price and these on ebay look ok but they dont look like they have clips so i presume you'd have to bond on which im not really keen on?

    From what I've read here and the photos, the door blades are held in place by a screw (or two) on the inside of door. Once removed, you just slide the blade towards the rear of the car to remove. Like yourself, I'm on the lookup for them on eBay as well.

    I have replicas on my car obviously not as good as oem but im really happy with the quality of mine and they do have to be bonded or you could use some kind of double sided sticky tape whice I opted for as mine also have a fixing point each end where originals screwed so there double fixed.I just couldnt justify the price of them from the stealers and mine were about a quarter of the price of genuine ones and as ill be removing and selling on when im lookin to change cars thats why I never bonded and theyve been fine so far .

    Ive sern ones on ebay saying original oem audi s4 doorblades and im sure they were over 400 so thats where i got that price from and ebay is usualy the cheeper option to dealers so could be more from stealers or I could be totally wrong.

    80 squid plus vat each thats crazy, do they have f1 drs systems built in for that or are they just a piece of moulded plastic that they know people want so they think they'll have your pants down!
    them ebay moulded ones are looking really tasty right now!
