I have new ones for both sides, and I installed the driver's side a month or so ago. Now, the window hits it right at the top where it curves, and it stops the window from going up any farther. I have to open the door slightly then put the window up. Even then, there's a small gap at the top of the glass because the new seal is thicker/firmer than the intermediate seals next to it (at least I think that's why there's the gap), so I do get some leaking in places it didn't leak before, and I get to listen to wind noise I didn't have before. I'm working on solving this problem. It sure would help if there were intermediate seals available, too.

Although I have new A-pillar seal installed, it still leaks, at the area close to rear view mirror. Not too good.
