No.....and don't call me Surely.

These fit better (tighter) to the body. The OEM's left a gap between them and the car.

Ripley's man - believe it ..... or not.

Ordered a set of these for the titanium today....pumped when seeing the price! Any advice on the best way to get the clips off the front without breaking them?

You can buy a simple tool made to remove these kind of clips at any autoparts store or Sears. There are two kinds, one that looks like a set of pliers, and one that looks like a screwdriver. This is what I have...

Excellent quality (almost 1 month since installation and no problems)... they took like 2 weeks to arrive but for the price... worth it.

I've waited about 3 weeks so far, and they're not here yet.

I got the 16.50 guards i don't know if it was the same seller or not. Mine don't fit great but are acceptable for the price. Mine gap away from the body and the drivers side gap away from the black trim. I hit them with the heat gun and got them a little tighter but they still need work. when i take my wheels off to dip them ill hit them again. They also are more of a gray color like black trim that's been sunbaked for a while and, when you pick them up from the post office resist the urge to open the bag because you'll release the gawd awful stench. Like i said they're worth the money if you can live with some tweaking then again you could get lucky and get a set of the good fitting ones. Ill get pics tonight.

I don't see how they can fit better than OEM since mine fit snug to the body and have no loosey goosey wiggling going on either.
