    Coding is required on Sportback models

    MY11s have the darker edges too, but same simple fit as 09s. Have a search and you should find plenty of both.

    Mate, i've seen you ask quite a few questions about parts for your car. You need to specify whether you have a 3 or 5 door because the advice you need depends on which one you have. :icon_thumright:

    Hey Mark, send NHN (Nigel) a PM and buy them from him as he does the best price and quickest delivery for them. You won't regret it, they transform the rear of your car and as has already been said it takes a few minutes to swap them over. :)
