I'm thinking about going with the cheap version of these; Only $48 via eBay. Free Shipping too. Not too shabby looking either. Well, to me at least. I feel $200 is a bit pricey.
I'm not too sure about installing these myself, so I'ma mess around with my car tomorrow. If I can get the proper trim off and find the correct wire harness, I shouldn't have a problem.



Not bad? Yes, No, Maybe?

How did you remove the Kick Panel? I tried with a screwdriver, and I tried prying. Neither seemed to work at all. It was clicking when I used the screwdriver, and prying just had me feeling like it was going to break off.

Ya all the panels feel like they are going to break. But you just have to close your eyes and pull straight out. The clips hold them in there pretty well.
