Here I am. I painted them. Yes, it worked. It's very awesome. I too was tired of looking at that crappy cheap plastic. Plus, I saved about $100 instead of buying the Type S ones! I've had them painted for about half a year now. No problems yet at all. The place that did it put something on the parts to get the paint to stick real well.

About $350. I know, that sounds like a lot. But you pay for what you get.

the type s skirts are painted the color of the car and in my opinion look 100% better than the ones on the base model. I would rather just get the type s ones than spending 350 to paint the ones that are already on the car. I got mine for 90 dollars and I am sure that there are some people on this board that want to get rid of theirs for that much. Just look around

Yeah, but y'all have more common colors. I couldn't find any that were my color. I tried the Acura dealer but it was going to be over $400 to get them! ha, so I saved money the best I could.

Plus, the typs S doesnt come in EBP.. so I'd have to get mine painted.

Also, what is this doing in the performance section :dontknow: Shouldn't it go in Style subforum somewhere?

Edit: nevermind.. since its a Base only question it fits in fine in the Base performance section. Pay no attention to me :wavey:

I already tried pointing out that this is supposedly a base "performance" section, but noone really seems to care about organization, my opinion, this forum should be moved under a subcategory in the General forum, because that's basically what this forum is heh.

are the sides and front lips hard to install? Do you just pop them off and then pop the new ones on or is there something else involved in the installation such as drilling? Im picking mine up in a week so I just want to know beforehand
