Think I've read on here that laminated glass causes issues for many internal ones

I had the laminated glass which prompted me to go for the VW ones fitted by the dealer. No issues and would do the same again. They look good and work well.

Is laminated glass an option on front side windows now ? I had front passenger window and galley window smashed in Feb in Chambery France in attempted break in . Passenger window looked like a bullet hole ( probably centre punch ) but didn't break fully so was laminated . Galley window shattered in 1000 pieces . Toughened . My specialist windscreen man back in Uk said all Calis have laminated front side windows because they're much quieter but not t5/6 vans.

Don't know if Mr. Dubflecta is on here but just wanted to say thanks.
Ordered on Saturday, arrived this afternoon!

5 minutes a side to fit and look great.

Thanks!

No, no option for that on the website. Didn't want to hassle them with a phone call for the sake of a fiver.

Probably should have but I'm a bit meek and mild, personality fault??

BTW, after pushing the clips in with a large flat bladed screwdriver, I then twisted the head of the screwdriver to open the clips up by about 1mm along their length.

I thought this would tighten the grip and also open the channel slightly. The windows went up and stayed up first time. The 28 degree heat might have softened the rubbers a bit though.

This is either a good tip or my anti-trap mechanisms don't work........:)

Did you get the discount?
I got the discount (as I reported) but haven't got my deflectors yet! Seeing this thread tonight reminded me to chase them up. I'm cool about it and guess they got lost in the post or slipped through his 'non web' ordering system, but I've every confidence they'll be here soon.

Wanting to get a set of deflectors and saw this thread, what is the consensus for the latest T6 Ocean, Dubflector or Heko ? Thanks.

Do you have to phone them to get the discount THEN? IF YOU e mail them and mention the club it says you get free postage but then how do you pay dubflecta without clicking PayPal. Which then adds postage. Yes I'm tight. Cheers
