Only concern I have is with the rear connection, since the molding has a higher tendency to pull away from the car as opposed to the front.
Also, my clips came with a little sticky piece of vinyl to place on the contact point to prevent any damage to the moldings.
yeah the q78 come with the thin vinyl as well but cant really stick it on as the backings are not flush. They have about 1/4" flat spots on each end that touch the moldings and then the rest is hollow in between. If the q53s are complety flush then that would def explain some of the different experiences.
