I have them on my 200, made in Germany by AirPress. The package listed many Audi fitments.
Although the fitment on our flush Audi windows is more difficult, it is not totally 
impossible. They get secured with long 3mm screws.

I do like them a lot, and I had those wind deflectors on all my cars since '84. They are 
especially good for smokers in the winter time. You crank them open by ~2cm, the smoke gets 
sucked out, the fresh air gets sucked in and you don't get snow or rain into the cabin.

The only car, that I did not install them on, was an automatic TransAm, that I briefly owned.
That car had fraimless windows. Incidently, excuse my ignorance, but if 2-door Audis come with  
frameless front windows, then wind deflectors are not an option.
