Lol. I understand man but if you order those from the link I sent you there wont be any problem. Their holes line up with the one already on your car so basically nothing can go wrong. I'll try to get some pictures today for you. If you order them just read through the instructions a couple times before you actually start taking screws out of your car lol.
The directions for the front ones are clear. The ones on the back say you should put the L bracket or whatever they called it on last but its pretty much impossible to do that with the tire still on so that actually needs to go on 1st. You sound kinda worried about these lol. I promise it wont be anything like your tire experience you told me about lol
Oh. I forgot about that. I just didnt see an option when I ordered and didnt feel like going through the trouble of finding out how to do it lol. The two screws in the front are right behind the tire. If you turn your wheels all the way you can see them. And yeah after that you just put the screws through the guard and screw it back on. the clip goes on the front two guards and they're just to stop the top of it from rattling around I think. And the spaces are for the back if I am thinking about the right things. you put them on the screws in the back because theres a large gap between the wheel well and where the screws go and the spacers make the guard flush with where they're supposed to go. It all makes a lot more sense when you can actually see it. I cant get pictures of the spacers because of how tight it is in there or id take one for you. I can take one of the clips in the front and that will probably have the front screws in it too if you want though.
I dont think they come painted. but the black doesn't look bad. and I'm sure it would look better on your car anyway since its grey. They don't look bad at all. My girlfriend and like 6 of my friends haven't even noticed I put them on. For the front ones you just remove 2 screws and put the guard up and screw it back on. The back are a pain in the ass though you do the same thing but because you cant turn the back wheels its really tight. Would be a lot easier if you can take your wheels off but if you cant it can be done with them on its just not fun. Took me about an hour and a half. Could be done much faster if you know what your doing though lol. http://rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=1815
I can get some pictures later this week for you.
Well think of it like saving money in the future so you dont get a cat back later and an axel back now lol. Different subject but I just got rpi's stealth splash guards this friday and put them on and I went on a trip that was about 130 miles this weekend and from what i saw there is very little to no dirt and brake dust on the paint. So if you dont have any splashguards I would recommend those.
I talked with the vendor a couple months ago about that and The Mach X-LLT is $899 shipped he said. And $698 for converters and he said total would be $1507.10 (I believe thats with a 10% discount he said he would give if I buy both together.) And I believe the high flow cats let the exhaust flow easier and add a little hp. Might do more than that but thats about all I know... Or think that I know lol.
