    Sunstrips are trricky and can quickly make a car look tacky so do take time to find the right one. Regards the requirements i would think that the strip cannot pass in to the path of the window wipers no matter whether on the inside or out. Other than that should be straight forward, It is here inIireland anyway.

    Hope this helps

    It'll ba right arse to fit one on the inside of the windscreen. It's technically illegal if it falls within the sweep of the wipers (which it will)I've always had them on and off and never been stopped because of it.
