Do the Ti skirts just 'clip' on over the stock skirts, or do you take the old ones off as one of mine has a dent in and I'd like to remove this?

Try Autolusso, or just look for 159s breaking on flea bay.

Do remember those Ebay skirts need priming, then painting otherwise the paint will just flake off. A proper baking of the primer is difficult without the proper tools. Hence why I opted for OEM Ti skirts, factory primed, painted at the body shop and fitted by them. Costly but peace of mind and hassle-free...ish.
