A guy in a bodyshop that does T4's only. Advised me not to put one on as he had done a couple and he could't stop the seams from cracking. I hope that is just him that doesn't know what he's on about as I like the look, however I steered clear as didn't want to spend the money and it look a dog.

Also do you have to alter the sliding door to clear the rear arches?

I would go smoothed in. Looks better

Mine hasn't cracked, I guess it's just a matter if doing it right and using the right materials ?

And yes, you will need to space the sliding door rail to clear arches if they are the same as mine.
