I think they look good. I just would not want to have to remove and stow them for sudden rain showers or even for stops when car is unattended.

And yeah, I know about the red clip.

We have a set but we rarely use them. I like the clean look of the car as it is, but my wife really likes the speedster bumps. They're kinda cool because you can change your look in just a minute. Anyway, this is what they look like on the car that they were intended to fit.

I agree. I have them and have only put them on the car once.

They look great but a PITA to put on and take off, plus I can't figure out how to make them fit in the rear trunk

I never "got" the speedster humps. (Sorry Grizz ) They look like an aftertought, make the look "busy", and the gaps of the fit are too large on all pics I've seen so far. Of course, just IMHO.

You don't have to apologize to me. They came with the car.
