That is what I thought also when I installed them on my other Audi, a
'94 90.  But a rock managed to find the unprotected edge and did a good
job of breaking the lense.  I managed to get 3 protected years from the
Stonegard, and there are some significant wounds in the protective
covers from object encounters.

I used the raw material approach (Griot's) for the replacement unit and
got much more thorough coverage.
