    Here is a picture, but to fir it to an SRi with later skirts like the one in your picture, you will need to fit GSi skirts.

    The arch trim appears to have been added on the GSi to protect the rear arch from stone chipping with the wider wheels. my car has minor marks in that area, so when I get the chance I will probably add that trim to it.

    thats true, i get chipping there as well, i just touch them up every now and then, i'm sure there is some kind of clear coat you can put over it, to protect from such damage

    I asked about those bits a while ago for the very reason Steve said, they are very expensive for what they are. The best price was naturally from Joerg, about £50ish each plus postage.

    One main dealer said I would have to buy the whole rear quarter to get 'em :shock: "OK mate carry on takin whatever your on"

    I think they would be modifiable to use with standard coupe skirts, don't know about any others tho
