    Anyone fired the s line stone guards to there non s line model?

    Seen some people say just use double sided tape but not keen on that idea.

    Not sure how to fit them with the clips as I haven't seen the clips before and I think it requires drilling into the sill?

    Any info would be great. ..

    not too sure to be totally honest with you but I would be more than happy with just double sided tape as you can get some pretty strong stuff that will be more than up to the job, don't like the idea of drilling in case you f**k it up!!!

    You only need the clips if you have an s-line as the sills have the lugs for the clips to locate onto.

    I'm liking this thread, I have an SE and wanted to fit these to give it more of a sleep look compared to just the regular SE sill.

    guys theres a deeper side and a shallower side to these blades, which goes to the top?

    got a funny feeling my old rep ones were fitted upside down

    They have RH and LH on them on the inside also the strip of tape goes to the top,
    when you offer them up to the sill approx 10mm down from the sill edge you will feel it sort of find its own position where it wants to go,if that makes sense.
