I fitted them my self and there isn't any problem with it...it's very easy and it takes about 20minutes for all 4....and I would recommend you to use some gloves because if primer gets on your hands it's very sticky....

Putting it mildly yes.

Although these are options, with lower manufacturing volumes than most parts in the car...

Manufacturing cost can´t be more than £1 each.
Some administation, distribution on top of that of course.

Development cost.. seriously can´t take many minutes on the CAD and as for testing costs... how much can you test...

So, there is a LOT of margin going to Honda on these!

I think that most of the margins they have on the cars are the options. The sellers seem to love it when you want to add a few options :)

Yes and in this case you get nothing (in terms of sound quality) if you do it right and resonance if you do it wrong [smilie=tongue.gif] I wonder if the black thingies that come with the car are in fact rings, I suppose they are, so why not try plastic primer + good quality spray paint :?::idea:
