Bump for a new start! Looks sweet, I'm sure the money you saved on not going with the bbs package can get you a sick set of rims/tires.

Congrats on finally picking one up. That was my first mod too. I left the rear one on for the first week but the front went as soon as it was home. I've got my real ones now but I still don't want to mount the front one :(, so they still aren't on yet...

What? You just pulled it straight off? Or was blow dyer needed?

Would these fit on the 08's?

That's exactly what i'm planning to do when mine arrives! i even asked the dealer if they'd do it during PDI:lol:
Did you use the usual hairdryer / fishing line method?
