    £270 for stickers...

    Just been to Vauxhall to price up all four carbon fibre stickers on the door pillers. They have qouted me:

    £10 per sticker 4 in total = £40
    £80 to take both rear windows out
    £150 labour

    Total - £270

    I tried to blag it under warrenty but they wouldnt give at all.

    This seems alot of money.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had this done? if so any cheaper??

    Yeah the are a hard job if you want them done right!!! I would attempt myself, but wanting it to be spot on.

    The rear window does have to come out for them to go under them.

    get a local autoglass man (or a friend who works for them ) to take them out for you then do your stickerage, then get him to bond back in. 150 quid labour is ridiculous.

    only problem with trimming it in is that over time it may shink back leaving a visible paint line under it - which is probably why its wrapped under the seal.

    i dont know if its like self adhesive vinyl but adhesive vinyl shrinks and expand with temp variations

    There's no bonding involved!!

    £150 labour isn't actually that bad when you consider the amount of work involved in removing the windows...

    The rear windows are held in place by several plastic nuts from the inside.. to access them all, the rear quarter panels need to come out (which involves removing the rear seats!), then you need to remove the B pillar interior trim, the C pillar interior trim (which, if I remember correctly, involves removing the parcel shelf support), then the trim piece along the top of the windows....

    This needs to be done for both sides, then re-fit it all once the stickers have been applied... not a bad price really, if you ask me.
