you can do the install yourself, it isnt that difficult at all.

300 is way too much, it shouldnt take more than 2 hours to DIY.

no clue if they make replica kits, but the kits they have there are good prices.

I installed mine and I had no idea what I was doing when I started... just give yourself a couple hours... it's not that bad.

And like 7thgenaccd said... be careful with the tape and try not to scratch anything. Good luck.

A friend is definitely a good idea... since it's hard to set the stuff down without scratching it. I have marine carpeting in my garage so I didn't have to worry about setting it down... just vacuuming first!

www.cheaphondaparts.com does not make cheap replica kits... that site is run by some Honda dealership.

Give yourself more than a couple of hours when installing the OEM kit. Take your time... have a friend help as well. NEVER take anything to the dealership to have them install it. The dealership will charge dealership prices.

Sides are easy to install, but the front and rear are much more difficult.

I would suggest having someone install it, BUT don't take it to Honda, call around some places that your friends/family know and see if you can find a cheap price for the installation.
