Two questions...
  1. Whats the fit against the hood? I have a set about a year old and they don't fit tightly, they slide around
  2. How does it fit with the hood latch/handle? with this also, I have to slide them over a little for the latch handle to pop out.

Fit's perfect. I'm shocked that we can get *anything* for our cars for $20, let along something that actually works/looks good. M5board must've changed how to post pics, cuz I can't seem to be able to.

You should upload images to imgur and post link here. Also consider disabling your pop-up/ad blocker and privacybadger-like stuff.
