    I've noticed these has become very popular recently.
    I'm wonder how everyone is getting on with theirs.

    Any issues, cracks, damage, falling out?


    I ask cause I've had all of these above and no response from Team Heko when I email them about my issues.

    The double sided tape has lost its sticky and they have all start to fall down a little bit.
    The front ones has started to crack at the back end and I almost lost the rear passenger one, if I open my rear window again it will fall out.

    No issues to report on a 3dr 8L A3, still get a bit of a free shower though. The wind noise gets annoying after a while so might take them off in the summer. I've read that the rear ones on a 5dr always fall out no matter what car because you don't bend them to put in so they aren't secure. It's nice to have a bit of fresh air though with the window down slightly when it's raining.

    Thats why I got them but I'm starting to have second thoughts about them.

    The rears needs an extra clip to keep them in, thats not to bad.
    My main complaint, apart from the lack of communication from Team Heko, is the cracking of the fronts.

    Got some on my S3 8l, pleased with them, been on about 7 months now, the double sided tape on them is **** and peeled it off, also the metal fitting brackets you get were also **** so mine are held in solely by the well fitting design. However they are looking a little scratched in places. No cracks yet....

    I'm not massively happy with the cracks and the lack of response.
    The falling off is a pain.

    I'll drop them another mail.

    Nice to know one else is having issues.

    lol. Not here mate.
    You mistaken me for that silver fox.

    I'm going to remove them.
    The rears keep falling out and the fact that they have dropped and showing the double sided tape is starting to annoy me.

    Just need to work out a way to remove the metal clips.
