I went for the £209.99 set

I find they help protect the doors when parked in tight spaces.

They took a few pictures of the car after they fitted them which they have posted on their website.

(If they fit any item to your car that they do not have pictures of in their library you should be able to negotiate a free fitting)

As an FYI they will have to cut slots in the underbody covers of the Q3 for the brackets required.

I considered fitting them to protect the sides of my Q3 but decided against it when I realised that the worst culprits were drivers/passengers of bloody great 4x4s (Range Rovers/Land Rovers/Toyota HiAces etc.) whose doors would be too high for the Q3 running boards to stop.

They do come with instructions but you need full access under the car.
I thought it would be straightforward but in the end contacted them to see if they would fit them for me.

They took almost 40 mins to fit each one and that was with a car ramp that they could move the car up and down and also an experienced fitter.
Watching the fitting I would advise against trying to fit yourself.

Not yet, I don't get my new Q3 until Sept 1st but the Audi dealership is a joke with accessory prices, you can do far far better with aftermarket specialists, theirs can take 15kg also. See the photos they look very good.

Hope this helps.

Looking forward to it, 177D auto quick enough nowadays as you rightly say, the paddle shift makes it every bit as good as the manual with instant gear changes.

Cheers.
