    I think you can get the strips from the dealers.
    I'm sure people have said you need to buy the rear quarter glass as well though, as the chrome strip is part of the glass.

    I think the downside of the chrome strips is that the can get water marks over time.

    if you have the saloon model then it will be just the crome strips you need
    all vx dealers sell them for about £35 each or you can try some breakers yards and they do come up on ebay know and then
