Easy install and its plug and play. I put one in my '07 a couple months back (ebay for 50, yay)
1.disconnect battery
2. there are two torx bolts on the back of the wheel (have to turn wheel to access both) holding the airbag on, then you pull the airbag (not too far/hard, its still wired to the wheel,) disconnect and remove air bag, set aside. disconnect cruise controls while your there.
3. One giant bolt holding the wheel on, remove then the wheel comes off

Reverse for install

It's been a great addition, especially since you touch/use it every time you drive. Much softer and more comfortable than the oem hard vinyl.

I got a better deal... I bought the whole 80k mile SVT that I sold Fattie these parts off of for $500, and I still have mint Recaros and complete powertrain :D I gave you a deal not realizing you were just going to flip the stuff on here. Oh well I've scored a G on a car I paid $500 and kept the power train and Recaros, Now that's something to get Jelly about LOL!!
