    Well I hope it was worth the wait:

    Both pictures and wordings are exactly the same!

    If you have a "Standard Vehicle", ie not aluminium trim, the following applies: (it's not overclear I'm afraid).

    I don't know what "standard trim" is - I'm not sure if refers to the dechromed options, my thoughts are that that would be same as aluminium, as it's basically the same trim just a different colour. Dunno.

    the problem is, to get at any screws/lugs/bolts to take the trim off, you need to be able to get at them 1st, so in order to be able to get at them, you need to take the top half of the door off i.e. the window frame itself, this just seems so so long for just a simple job,

    You've found out why nobody does this mod!

    You will have to strip the doors down to change to the alu/chrome scraper mouldings. :faint:

    The aluminium trim should just slide off though according to Elsawin?

    The B7 you're breaking has chrome strips, have you found this not to be the case?

    If it anything like an A6 one the door has to be stripped and the chrome wiper seal is riveted to the outer panel from inside
    its not a hard job but if your doing all 4 its going to be fairly time consuming job .

    I looked into this yrs ago when I first got my red one. I knew it was going to be a Bastward to do so asked the dealers how much to supply and fit......approx £1200 :wtf:
