Those are just for P80s, neither of your cars should have those. P2s have rain gutters there, with body colored plastic trim. I'm not sure about P1s, but I'm sure yours is probably correct.

I think they come standard?
So I need to find 4 or those :( although the C30 is very clean despite not having them.
Oh what I meant was that they're prob std on my S70. On your cars I have no idea.
Thanks, I'll do some research on mine.
Blessings,

Headliner time !
I did a bad job in the front lining up with the handles holes, but it's not sagging in the back anymore and that's all I care about :lol:

Water cooled New Beetle. 180 HP turbo charged i4 and 5 speeds. Quite zippy. Always on time to a Taylor Swift concert and easy to find amidst all the Miatas

While looking for the source of my loud exhaust note, I found two minor coolant leaks. The rubber hose from the bottom of the coolant bottle is seeping at the clamp on the metal pipe. The second is slightly worse than minor. Coolant is leaking around and behind the the thermostat housing. Coolant may also be leaking out around the ECT.
