    with it not being a coupe the irmscher one is the only one i know of which are quite expensive (£80?) and cant remember ever seeing more than one or two for sale second hand so tbh you might struggle,

    if you have a black car, whats the point in painting a chrome strip black? It will look as it's not there

    Coupe ones fit the hatch I think.

    I have mine colour coded

    ^^ I can understand colour coding the coupe one Lee as it is mostly fitted as standard, but to buy a chrome strip and then paint it black seems rather pointless IMO.

    I tried to take mine off the other day, finding out they are pinned on, later coupes with the strip pre-fitted have pinned tailgates wheras early coupes are flush at bottom. I would of gave you mine but am getting mine colour coded instead now, cheaper than a new tailgate lol!
