    The profile will definately be different at the front end as this incorporates the profile for the rear door shuts on the estate and saloon, I can't be 100% sure but I would think the rear profile should be the same as the coupe.
    I think it would be worth a gamble for £26 to buy one, cut off the front end and see if it would fit with a bit of minor fettling.

    I'm pleased you posted this ad as this is the route I will be going down if ever I need to replace rear arches on my cabriolet as I haven't seen any specifically made for the coupe/cabriolet.

    Keep us informed if you decide to give them a try.

    HI Peter. I think I will give it a go. Without knowing I am fairly confident the rear part should be the same - famous last words...

    Won't be for a few weeks yet but will update as and when.

    Let us know how you get on , also any photos of them being fitted ? how are they going to be attached ? crimped and spot welded?
    one of my 124 arches needs this treatment
