I installed Infinity 6032si's in the front last week. I also used the factory frames and it does come out looking good, especially being able to use the factory connectors. When I tried the Infinity frames, there were some gaps between the frame and the hole in the door. Someone earlier in this thread or another thread used Scosche frames. They looked a little wider.

I had to cut notches at the edge of the factory frame to fit the tabs in the speaker where the screws go. The only thing I had to be careful with was to offset the speaker terminals from the factory frame terminals. Otherwise one of the holes drilled to attach the speaker would have gone right through the factory connector. If I ever remove the door panel again I will put some loctite on the screws also.
