    I have had the same problem with the more expensive set,

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I fitted them and they felt ok, wentfor 1st drive out and lost one! Messaged seller who sent me a new one f.o.c, fitted this and then lost another one, messaged seller again sayin they were not fit for purpose, he is sending another one out and has told me to wrap clips with insolation tape and they should stay on.

    omg thats disgusting £60 for that lot and they dont even fit properly .

    I got the bonnet, boot and steering wheel ones really cheaply from ebay and they fitted striaght away no problem. The only comment i will make is where the sun was hitting down on the bonnet emblem its now gone a yellowly colour but nothing to bad. Ok so thanks for that have you tried the insulation tape on yours? If so does it work yeah? I may use that and alsso a thin layer of silicone around the lip so they def dont fall out

    I used plumbers tape around each of the clips and the fit perfect now. Don't move at all.

    Tell me about it that it why I think they have given me new ones free of charge, if they hadnt I would have complained to ebay and got my money back. Not tried it yet as still waiting for another new one too arrive. Let me know if it works mate.

    It's a PU adhesive especially meant for sticking trim bits to cars and can be removed. Google it
