    I think there bonded on with maybe a screw in each wheel arch. Could be wrong though. Where did you find them for that price. Good find

    Links aren't active on my mobile.... Are those for the ST or the 5 door? Web addresses suggest 5 door.

    Have anyone tried any of the ebay versions:
    M.ebay.com/itm/201678289816?NAV=HOME

    Got this answer from the seller how they are mounted :
    Parts should be bonded along using silicon glue and bolted on each end using self tapping bolts.

    And this If they look exactly like the OEM:
    Yes, they have exactly the same look
    regards

    So, any known drawbacks purchasing 'fake'?
    They are very cheap in comparison

    Think they maybe made of fibre glass which is more fragile than abs And may not be as good as oem skirts in terms of fitment

    Yeah, read up on that. OEM it is.
    Trying to find a good set. The ones I was trying to purchase was UK only. im located in sweden.
    Local dealer wants 800£. Best price on ebay with international shipping is 450£. Got quoted painting 180£ and fitting 200£ at local paint shop.

    Expensive plastic......
    But know I need to have them. :handbags:

    Attaching them

    I'd enquired about retrofitting them. I was thinking of getting them to complement the Brembos. According to the Seat technicians it's bolted on at each end & bonded too. Painted off the car. I would use a local reputable bodyshop instead though. Haven't convinced myself as yet.

    I was planning on having them painted seperatly and then fitted to the car. Is that what you mean when saying painted off the car? Or do you mount first and paint with them mounted?

    painting

    As in they're painted off the car before fitting. You don't paint them on the car.

    Could you not go to your local dealer and ask them if they price match? Never know until you ask

    It's a real shame Seat didn't fit the skirts on the Cupra model. They look really good on the fr and seems very odd that the top of the range model doesn't have them.

    They weren't standard on the FR. You needed to get the sport pack. On the Cupra you got the skirts with the sub8 pack.

    True. Will send out the question.
    Asked three independent seat dealers and got exact same quote.
    will get back to all three of them.

    really wierd if I can get a better price as a end customer at a UK dealer, than the price they get from seat.... but we will se. I will keep on searching. I really want them :)

    Yeah I know what you mean. I purchased some from that link. Because the ones I previously ordered arrived damaged from another company. At this price it's too good to miss
