Used recently for a customer and I was shocked at the quality of these.

Within minutes of fitting there were stress signs in the plastic which means the are probably going to need replacing in a year. How can a piece of plastic as thick as a piece of paper support a side skirt?

My advice is if your in a rush to get your skirts on get them but replace them with genuine ones asap as you will only end up paying for your skirts refitting and painting when they fail.

Right well we're in the middle of make carbon fibre one, this week. Will be trying them on the car on saturday. If they work out alright will be selling them, they don't have to be carbon, they could just be glass fibre, its just i'm a tart, and like my carbon bling! lol. Havent got a price just yet but they be relatively inexpensive.

I used 2 sets of those dodgy endcaps together, seems to have done the job. Although I got 2 sets, so 8 endcaps for £9.95 when I bought mine.

I think when I get skirts I'm going to knook some end caps up out of steel then powdercoat them black, job done. Saves pissing about with poor copies.

I got a set from my local dealer Feb last year. MG Rover Part No: DDJ000380 Discription: Kit- Exterior Trim. The genuine deal. Think all in all, was around £60!
