LOL, you're not joking, I thought the car was blue until you said.

Well done fitting them yourself mate, that's true value for money!

Stickers look good too

Cheers mate

The stickers were a bit of a gamble, but they were only a tenner plus P&P for the pair from eBay so it wouldn't have been the largest sum of money I've ever wasted if it all went wrong. Wifey's always wanted some since she first saw them on another Clio, but she had a 3 door at the time. We changed to the 5 door and I spotted these on eBay , but I've never seen them on a 5 door model before.

As it turned out, they just fit on both sides, though I had to go right onto the wheel arch and part way onto the front door to do it. They're as low to the rubbing strip as they will go, but the top of the 'C' on the driver's side still goes slightly into the recess for the door handle.

They're not as pretty as when they're run at around 45 degrees across the window as they tend to be on the 3 door, but that just wouldn't work on the 5 door.

Anyway, she's gone out in her car tonight. Normally she takes mine because the fuel is free .

Although you are right about the black senors standing out it looks a real good fit, great stuff Horatio thanx for the pics.

Looks a better fit up, than a polish up.
