Looking for Weathershields for Fronts and Rears

Looking for a set of Weathershields for my 2003 SP20 BJ-II fronts and rears preferably tinted. Anyone selling or can point me in the right direction?
I've already checked on ebay but I only found a front pair only.

+1, for a hatch, in tinted slimline. But not having much luck.

Forum member rupewrecht has a used set for a BJ sedan currently on sale.

Thanks for the reply Jazzy, I've got a hatch aswell and I've been looking for ages. I've seen some guy on the freeway with a BJ-II with tinted weather shields fronts and rears and looks amazing!

Ok cheers for starters! I've found the Protege5 weathershields from U.S.A, I just want to confirm if it would definitely fit my 323 SP20 (their protege5's look exactly the same as our SP20's).

Yep, doors are the same between all hatches around the world.

If there's more than one set, you mind sharing the source please?

Also, been searching for KN KQ Laser hatch as they are the same as BJ Astina doors/glass I believe. No luck there either.

You know the ones you bought are for sedan, right?

What a very confusing description that is!
Says for a "Protege5", "Base Hatchback 4-Door", which surely has to be the "wagon" style. Even has photos of only the wagon. But then also says for "4 door only". ????

I took the gamble and proceeded on buying them and......
Rupe was right.. these were for sedan only, I had to machine off the ends of the front weather shields to fit.. LOL!
The rears fit on nice and had no dramas driving when it was raining.
Overall, looks really nice!

No, those are the correct set for a wagon/hatch. The front's are the same either sedan or hatch. It's just the rears that differ.

The ends on the fronts, where the double sided tape is, go just under the side mirror cover. No machining/cutting needed.

The best ones IMO are made by weathertech.com. They go inside the weather channel, and are not as wide. Looks way better too. But they only have light tint. Easy fix though with a can of tint spray on the underside!

WeatherTech version in photo below.

So which ebay auction did you end up buying from ?
Might get a set for myself.
And wierd how you had to machine the front because the sedans and hatch should be the same except the rear doors ?
